My moment was when i went to a HF meetup (before it became CES) and got to audition all the different types of headphones and gear - Stax, AKG1000, hybrid planars, R10's, L3000's, buffalo DAC, moths, blue hawaiians, etc. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I didn't actually like the things that i read were good. I learned to trust my own ears first. My 2nd moment was when i built my own CMOY (RIP btw) based on reading threads and viewing pictures about the Grado RA-1. I realized that i could make for myself almost anything that i wanted and that there was an endless list of really cool projects out there.
