    Women in High End Audio

    A couple of interesting posts of late:

    (A Man's Perspective)
    How Not to Get Women Interested in Audio | Confessions of a Part-Time Audiophile

    (A Woman's Perspective)
    No Girls Allowed: Why I Hate ?Wife Acceptance Factor? | Confessions of a Part-Time Audiophile

    My wife read both and her take is:

    A. Yes, the audio industry is NOT very welcoming of women.
    B. The Photography industry has worked wonders over the past 10 years or so to be more inclusive of women and no longer suffer these stereotypical challenges.
    C. Women, generally, tend to be more interested in the "visual" than the "audible".

    I read an obituary the other day and the only thing they had to say about the guy's hobbies was that he liked to walk his dogs and spank his monkey.

    I get my wife involved by playing Blue Ray concert videos of her favorite artists. She lasts about 20 minutes during two channel only listening. Then out comes the iPhone and she starts texting and becomes disengaged.

    The only way I could get my wife into my listening room is if I left a trail of diamonds leading into my room. Once she had collected all of the diamonds, she would head back out.

    So true, mine is the same way. She always had this saying " what's wrong with the other speakers or that amppy thing don't they still work. I always come back with, well how many freaking pair of shoes do you really need, don't the old ones you only wore once still work.



    oh PS: we all know how the outcome of that went.

    Maybe a nice pair of Cream leather & natural Walnut Sonus Faber Liliums would get them interested:

    it would take something more than diamonds for my wife. why is our society so bent on making woman into men and feminizing males?? my spouse is no more interested in joining me in the garage fixing stuff as I am helping her choose outfits or stand with her at the cosmetics counter.

    If SF changed the name from "Liliums" to Lithium, you might stand a better chance.

    No, SF just needs to include a matching Gucci handbag:

    If you get them a Gucci handbag, they would just want to leave and show it off to their friends. With Lithium, it might calm them down long enough to listen to a little music.

    I think B&O came as close to anybody to creating female audio jewelry. You at least had to be a metrosexual to enjoy it.

    Re: Women in High End Audio

    My girlfriend loves listening to music with me. I cook a nice meal, pair a bottle of wine and have some great music playing during dinner. Then, once the meal is done, we take our remaining wine and sit down to listen to music. When we first started dating, she was so spoiled with my system that she needed to have something different at her place. So, she now has a nice little system from me. Definitely not near the level of my system at all, but very enjoyable. She recognizes the differences easily between our two systems or if a change is made in my system. She isn't an audiophile at all, but certainly wouldn't be the type to discourage someone from spending/upgrading as she has incredible appreciation of how the better gear makes a difference.

    The key word here is "girlfriend." Women pretend to like all sorts of things you like when you are dating. The truth comes out after you say "I do." Ditto for men. Remember, people are always 1000 times nicer when they first start dating than they are in real life.

    Re: Women in High End Audio

    Women have a very different take on audio. They want to hear the music, not look at the gear and its switches and pretty lights. The biggest problem is on the front lines though. Finding a dealer that will actually talk to a woman on her terms and patiently answer her questions is tough. Just like buying a new car, dealers tend to talk to the men, and talk down to the women.
    When we were first married (25 years ago) we needed a new system. We went to several dealers, and listened to a number of systems. The place that got my money, was a Linn dealer who talked to my wife, set up the gear she wanted to hear and took the time to explain everything to her in non-technical terms. She used that system more than I did, and even demanded upgrades eventually.
    The main reason was that system allowed her to enjoy the music without fussing over it.

    No smart salesperson does that at any successful dealership. You have to "sell" to the person who has the purchasing authority. In most marriages, it's the woman. It usually doesn't take long to figure out who the person is that's in charge of the money. They don't call them "purse strings" for nothing.

    Okay, I can agree to some extent. However, my girlfriend and I have been together for nearly 4 years. And, listening at my place prompted her to want a nice system at her place as well. So, this is much more than pretending to like things I do when we are dating.

    Let me know how it goes if you ever say "I do." Right now, you still own everything you have and you get to call the shots on how your house is decorated and what gear is going to reside in which room. After you say "I do," you will be gone for business sometime and while you are gone, she will hold a yard sale and blow all of your gear out the door for pennies on the dollar and she will take the proceeds and redecorate the house to remove all traces of manliness from it. Your geek audio buddies won't be allowed to come over anymore and you will be spending your free time sniffing candles with her at the local candle store.

    Re: Women in High End Audio

    I recently had a customer buy a new pair of speakers from me and his wife was a big part of the process. She was interested in both the looks and the sound. They both are equally happy with the choice. He even said that she told him to ask me what is the next most logical upgrade to the system. So, as much as he is the one dealing with me, she is very involved in the process behind the scenes as well, and not just from the perspective of how things look as they love listening to music together. This is very refreshing.

    Agreed, but it happens more often than you think. Especially if the salesman is a gearhead.

    If you cop that attitude, you will be a broke salesperson because you won't be moving much inventory. Once the dealership figures out you are a hay burner, they will drop you faster than a used prophylactic.

    Glad to hear it. That's a refreshing story. I think most men are lucky if their spouse tolerates their audio hobby let alone participates in some way besides "You aren't putting that in my living room!"

    Re: Women in High End Audio

    my wife was the antithesis of one who demands WAF (invisible system). i moved my relatively massive stereo into her fairly small apartment. i cam home on saturday after working at the hospital and the TEAC open reel was running (fleetwood mac playing) which she had never been shown. the small Celestion County speakers i was trying out had been disconnected and the Infinity Monitors back on because she preferred their sound.

    when we moved into a house, she prompted me to hook up the Dynaquad rear speakers because she missed the added realism they added.

    after 12 nice years of marriage and two children, she succumbed to a long term illness. she has NOT been replaced.

    Hi Tommy! Sorry, never knew about you losing your wife and companion of 12 years! Know it must have been tough but her memory lives on with you forever!

    My wives have all known that my hi fi system stays with me and gets planted in the house where I want it. This is one topic that is not open for discussion for more than fifteen seconds. If they have something important to say on the topic, they had better make the point FAST. They have been told they can decorate the house in any fashion they desire as long as I don't hate it, which I think gives them a lot of latitude. I get first dibs on any room for stereo equipment, then they can do just about anything else they want in it. I know it may sound boorish and crass, but that's how it is.

    If I want something to make my listening better, I get it and they have no say in the matter. I never stopped them from buying shoes, and they won't stop me from buying what I like either.



    Having said that, I have always enjoyed "The Audiophile's Wife" website and am sorry the writing has stopped.

    Re: Women in High End Audio

    thanks all you guys for your empathy. i feel VERY lucky to have gotten at least one good spouse. so many people never get that and for them, i am the one with empathy. i can't mope about the loss because i have all those years of good memories and two beautiful daughters from it.

    another thing i feel extremely fortunate about is that our second daughter only went to 5 1/2 months gestation and weighed in at one pound and 6.5 ounces. that was in 1983 and she survived without major health issues. the hopital bill was $270k (1983 dollars) and i am not kidding. worth every penny. the insurance covered 100% because it was a complication of pregnancy.

    i don't often mention this in public forums but i just wanted you guys to feel good about this overall.

    thanks again.

    Re: Women in High End Audio

    With respect to my wife, she is very supportive about this audio hobby of ours. She enjoys music as much as I do but will not sit in the sofa to listen for more than 30 minutes. She prefers that I play the music through the speakers we have set up through the entire house. Music is playing at home typically the entire weekend - unless we are in the Christmas holiday season in which the Hallmark channel seems to get a lot of her time.

    In terms of system upgrades, she is very supportive. Actually, pushes me to get whatever I want. Her philosophy has been that we work too hard and that we need to share and enjoy what we have.

    That is right attitude. My wife supports the hobby I'm into but doesn't embrace it as I do. Hopefully after the next upgrade she will be more involved. I want her involved but yet I don't. I don't want to argue over what I spend on this hobby.

    Re: Women in High End Audio

    There was a pre-Christmas thread on a Dutch forum last week with the question who would be able to make it through 2015 without investments in his audio gear or anything related like power, acoustics and so on.
    I can tell you that my wife thinks I can. Even after I told her I was eyeballing an Amp with a big, old fashioned attenuator dial. She is always telling me that it is too difficult to turn the volume down when of instance the phone rings. And of course I did explain het how to easily do it with one of the iPads including her own iPAd and with the buttons on the preamp but she keeps telling me she wants an old fashion rotary knob.
    So I thought this could enable my Octave HP 700 purchase but she said: "No, you don't need that. You are telling all the time that you are so happy with the sound". And of course she is right! But you know, we have this urge that we cannot control....
