I've seen Sennheiser HD202, HD570, at least 3 pairs of Triports (one possessed by someone who will argue with you until death that they are the best headphones ever made), and so SO many pairs of iBuds.
I saw some headphones today that I recognised but couldn't think of the name at the time.
Whilst looking up headphones for some peeps (a lot of people turn to me for advice), I saw them, they were AKG K240S's hehe. Couldn't tell if he used an amp with it though. Also saw some more Skullcandies...*shudder*
The hater up there likes to shudder at the sight of Skullcandy. At my university, Skullcandy is high end. Consider that. So far all I've seen is a sea of ipod stock buds or other generic open earbuds. Another common headphone is the Sony over-the-clip headphones.
Also, I've seen several of the Bose in-ears with the black and white cable. Plus I saw a pair of Tri ports around someone's neck.
About the only high end sighting I saw was last year. A girl in my stats class was wearing Shures, E3C I believe, with the cables over the ear.
Saw a guy in his mid 30s rocking a higher-end Grado on the D train a week ago - Couldn't tell which ones as I am a Grado newb.
Saw another dude in his 30s with black iGrados on the J train today.
What is up with the open phones on the loud-ass subway?
Saw a young professional listening to Bose IEs sitting across from me on the 5 train last week. I was listening to my Bose IEs as well (flame-guard! - I got em as a gift). Pretty bad isolation on these too @.@ but they're all I got as far as bud/ie-type phones.
My d1001s I bought partially for portable use but I haven't yet fully prepared myself for the stares I'll be receiving outdoors lol. Plus they're recabled with no sheathing after the Y-split so it'll look even stranger
I need me some iems with good isolation..
A co-worker constantly listens to his noise-cancelling supra-aural Sonys. Seen some other Sonys and some cheapo looking fullsize hp's and iems that I couldn't recognize here and there as of late as well.
On the bus today I saw somebody with some Technics (couldn't tell what model) and yesterday saw someone (couldn't tell if it was a guy or a gal lol) with some Senn HD-25 II's. If it was a gal = ++++ on the attractiveness scale :P
