|... for reasons other than failure? What performance elements do people seek in different brands? What makes one go out and buy a new headset??|

|I think a lot of folks buy a Chris King and figure they'll never have to buy another. There's some glitz factor.
Some folks gotta be spending on their baby...

|... not only do I buy new headsets for new fork installations... I usually buy Chris King so's I've got a bit of compatibility (especially the crown race).
I've only worn out the headsets on SWB recumbent bikes (pitted cups) and they still get lesser headsets (much higher stresses than double diamond... and they're 1").
CK's are just my personal preferences... and some of my friends like me cuz they can get my old sets cheap.
Be the bike.

|I don't drink often, don't smoke, so what else to I have to blow my money on? My bike cries out...FEED ME!!...and being a slave to that aluminum god, I have to obey. Luckily a Chris King costs nowhere near the price of his wheel habit.|

|Well, I look for a wide dynamic range with even balance. I like crisp clean highs, and no over booming bass. It must fit properly and seal well without feeling like either a vice gripping or in weight. Oh, sorry, wrong headset.|
