I have a headphone.com Total Bithead USB headphone DAC/Amp and if I am using the usb power rather than battery I can hear a slight buzz when I scroll the mouse wheel. A lot of other people I know can't/don't/won't see or hear these things even after I point them out and even if they do see or hear these things after I point them out, they aren't bothered. I am bothered by them alot, lol.
    I am also anal about visual artifacts and sound distortion. I also react quicker and are more sensitive than most others when loud noises occur. I swear, sometimes I react before something loud or destructive happens, but maybe it's just my disoriented perception at the time.

    I use Musiland MD10 DAC/AMP and AKG K701 combo, btw.

    Nice. I haven't climbed that far up the ladder yet. Started with Grado SR-60, now have the Total Bithead and Etymotic ER-6 and Audio Technica ATH-A700's. Would go further up the ladder but buying Blu ray discs and taking private pilot training is draining muh funds at the moment

    It's all good. I also have an ATH-A500, which served me well before my AKG's. And I use Etymotic ER-4P for portable listening.

    Sorry for the OT folks.

    From my perspective, I'm pretty caught up in my head with stuff going on, but compared to other people, I guess I notice a lot about the outside that others don't.

    Particularly aspects of design and construction.

    I think the above posts are good examples of how detailed knowledge enhances your perception/level of detail - that's true across all types. You notice more of what you understand.

    I guess I make an effort to relate what I'm seeing (hearing, feeling etc) to something meaningful - which makes certain things pop out in clarity because I can understand them.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.

    I'm very aware of my surroundings, it goes into overdrive when I go sightseeing someplace new, I become actively aware of everything trying to absorb every sensation and nuance.

    I'm like that and it can annoy others when I'm so distracted by my new surroundings. I have a tendency to ignore the familiar and explore the new.

    I'm generally aware of everything that goes on around me in a subconscious manner- to the point of knowing when someone is looking at me from across the room without turning around, or knowing what the weather is outside before I open my eyes in the morning... just little sensory clues clicking together in the back of my mind...

    however, I'm known for blatantly not noticing things like cracks in the sidewalk, or that the coffee table has been moved those things are less INTERESTING

    I have horrified people by having much better reflexes than predicted though (thanks to the tendancy to walk into coffee tables and trip over the sidewalk)... I can think of a few people who realize there's nowhere that they're safe in my presence if they torment me... I kicked one guy in the chest who was standing behind me and he STILL wonders how it happened

    My mom get's after me for doing this because I tend to get real quiet and just take in what's there, but my mom finds it pretty rude of me to rather delight in what I see, hear, smell, and feel, than to talk and get involved with the people around me at that moment. Guilty.
