A person with high enthusiasm for high-fidelity sound reproduction is called an audiophile. Though most people just wanted to listen to music regardless of what platform, there are those who have an expensive fetish to high-end music stuff. Their key goal is to capture the experience of a live musical performance with good acoustics and relive it at home. Audiophiles use the term high-end audio referring to equipments that are sold at specialist shops or even online through websites. 

Turntables, digital-to-analog converters, equalization devices, preamplifiers and amplifiers, horn and electrostatic speakers, power conditioners, subwoofers, headphones, and acoustic room treatment are all considered high-end components. Audiophiles play music from different sources like CD’s and audio file formats. Headphones are also regularly used by audiophiles. These products can be remarkably expensive, some over $10,000 but they are cheaper compared to speaker systems. They also venture into a wide variety of accessories like fine-tuning techniques, sometimes called "tweaks" that improve the sound of their systems. Audiophiles seem to be restless when it comes to achieving the perfect dream system in their mind that doesn’t seem to have an end. The audio journalist and longtime heavyweight of the industry, Steve Guttenberg, is a known and self-confessed Audiophiliac

    "Marshall Kilburn Portable is a wireless speaker that operates via Bluetooth. It's a highly rated speaker that is sure to output great sound. However, it is pretty pricey and there are likely to be cheaper options available. For the price, the speakers may work pretty well with outputting great sound though."

    ""Cheap" is largely subjective, but these speakers almost certainly fit the bill no matter what price range you had in mind. Available for under $20, they're not bad, but exponentially better and more powerful speakers can be found for only a fraction more. If you're looking for something under $20, this is a good solution, but I'd recommend shelling out an extra $10 or $20 to pick up something a little better."

I'm not a hardcore audiophile, but I like the fact the music sounds like music, and you can pay attention to its deep structure. When I am just focused on listening to music I usually just use my iPhone with headphones, so I can walk around, but I think the quality of these speakers is good enough that I can just sit there and listen to them too. A solid buy for the price."
