I feel like there are a lot of young people that don't know what music is supposed to sound like.
I can't necessarily blame them, either. It's expensive to be able to listen to music "right".
Even for quality low end, you're looking at $200-$250 for a decent DAC and headphone amp, another $100-150 for a decent set of headphones, $10-20 for cables, and an expensive Tidal or Quboz subscription (which are worse than Spotify at almost everything except actual music quality).
Or you can buy a $150 pair of AirPods and you can make calls with them.
A good friend of mine spends way too much money on audio equipment -- between his living room system and his headphone/desk setup, he's well past $40k. But I'm so glad to be able to frequently hear how GOOD music can sound because it lets me save a bunch of money and find the "good enough" gear -- 90% performance for 10% cost kinda stuff. Honestly, more like 5% cost, I'm on a budget
