Indeed, I was surprised when I saw him with them and I had to ask him to allow me to take a photo. He gave me a weird look but complied :p

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

That's crazy!  Pretty awesome picture too lol.

 

I saw a kid with HD201s around his neck.  That's the most action I've had over the past week.

While I was at an electronics store thing about what I wanted to have, I saw a couple of teens beside me eyeing headphones from the Skullcandy section. Apparently they were looking to get the Hesh 2, but knowing Skullcandy, I'm guessing they don't know any better. Do they sound any good? xD

I, on the other hand, was looking at the SE215s, which I never knew was even there. Didn't get to see any cans on the higher-end, but I did get to see an HD518.

Oh yeah, after a lot of research, I found the model of what I found back in Hong Kong a few months ago -- the Final Audio Design Pianoforte X. Just the name leaves the impression that its expensive. :P

I've heard of FAD. There's no headphone stores in AZ, but any audiophile speaker places only have FADs for some reason.

FAD is a renowed brand in the higher-end of the price spectrum. A respected reviewer in the Discovery Thread, ericp10, bought the FAD Pandora Hope VI and he was thoroughly impressed with them.

FAD make great quality IEMs when it comes to the expensive ones. There are 3 lines if I recall correctly called Final Audio Adagio (cheap-ish), Final Audio Heaven (middle ish) and Final Audio Piano/Piano Forte (expensive-ish)

You might have seen the Piano line up, its those shiny chrome tipless IEMs people like to flaunt.

Dude on the blue line across from me today in some clear Shure in-ears. Probably 215s, but you never know.

Saw a guy on the train a couple of days ago with an Etymotic ER4 in his ear. I only saw the cable connectors as he was wearing a beanie. I had my UE900s on and he looked at me slightly longer than a normal person. I nodded, he nodded. He then took out his phone and I realised that the IEM wasn't plugged into his phone, mine isn't either because its connected to my DX50/PB2. This made me think he probably has it connected to a dedicated DAP and/or Amp. So with this in mind, I took my UE900s off, tapped him on the shoulder and asked him what his IEM was and what he was driving it with and he told me it was a Sansa Clip. He said he recognised my UE900s and I showed him my DX50/PB2 setup. I asked what else he has and he took out of his bag his own UE900, and a Westone 3. I asked why he carried around so many IEMS and he told me, it depends on my mood. I said, I understood and promptly pulled out my Yamaha HPH200. I asked if he was on headfi, he said he used to but its too costly. At this point he had to get off the train and we said bye. My first time meeting another loonie like us.

Best Buy near my house actually has a hidden section of pretty nice headphones. Here are some, but I will list what I can remember.

B&W P3, P5, and P7
AKG K550
Sennheiser Momentum
Sennheiser HD558 AND HD700

Also had a pair of ATH with wood ear cups, can't remember the model.
