All I ever see is a few guys at work have Bose QC's. confused_face.gif
Awesome. All I see at Best Buy is this chubby guy that usually is in the computer department who get paid to wear Beats and Sol Republiv around his neck.

My guess is UE for obvious reasons.

Saw what could be a CIEM today at Nex shopping centre at around 10.30 am . It had the shape of a GR07 but it had a metallic faceplate and completely covered his ear. I was using my R2ls and The guy was also trying to find out what I was using.

Happened to be there at that timing too but did not see any decent iem/ciem.

I'm impressed, I saw a HD598 on a guy carrying a guitar case here, walking in the quiet suburbs.

Saw a dude with what appears to be some Sennheiser PX-100's. They're smaller in real life than what they look in pictures.

True that. I found a display pair of the PX100-ii at a store, and it really was small. Never thought on-ears could go as small as that without compromising on the sound. It's like an oversized earbud that couldn't fit in your ear (if that even made sense).

Yup. On-ears kinda sit awkwardly between full-sized circumaurals and IEMs. But they don't always compromise sound though, you can find tiny on-ears that sound much better than gigantic over-ears.

...like the PX100. They're seriously great portables, especially since most thieves think they're just Coby crap and ignore you.
