If anyone happens to live in San Antonio and ride the VIA, if you see a guy on the 8 with the HD580s on, it's probably me.

I've seen a few HD595/555 and K271S headphones during high school. Recently, my headphone sightings have been rather dry. I know there are people who have also cans around here, but all I've seen recently are Shure IEMs. Of course a number of classic Triports and OEHs here and there. Oh yes, and the common V6s here and there as well.

Still waiting to see a Sennheiser, A-T, AKG, or Beyer around campus.

I was wearing my super.fi's when I saw another guy adjusting his walking in the other direction. We paused, subconsciously acknowledged each other, and went on our way.

Sadly, I know what it's like having to adjust your Super.fi's all the time.

You mean you both stopped for a split second? It's odd seeing someone wearing the same headphones...

I had to go to the Music Library today for some research, and in the listening stations there were... HD414s!
I couldn't believe my eyes, especially since I'd been looking them up a little bit because I got some pads for the SR60. I had to go touch them, those pieces of history.

on the bus, saw a pretty lady sporting White A-T ES7s!!! (oddly enough playing DS lite)

earcups were smudged w/ fingerprints, but still damn sexy!

Saw a girl wearing Skullcandy Icon (white/pink) on the subway today. Cute girl, but damn ugly headphones.
..and of course the usual 4-5 PortaPro's.

I don't know where the hell you guys go that you spot all of these cans. All I ever saw was a girl wearing some e2c's on campus. The only people with good phones 'round here are people that I've personally given good gift phones to.

I walk around with the ES2 and E500 all the time, and I don't get any stares or reactions. People don't know, and don't care. I'm not a pen freak, and I don't stare at what pens people use, and I don't feel superior about using a fountain pen when everyone else around me has a ballpoint. So, by this analogy, I can see how others feel about headphones - that is to say, don't feel anything at all.

I did carry around a Sony PCDP --> MicroDAC --> Hornet --> HD600/Blue Moon combo, just for kicks. I didn't get much weird looks or comments either. Guess it must be that on me, that sort of geekiness looks normal =D

Buy her some proper headphones and then ask her to marry you.

Kid in my spanish class today whipped out some um2's, it is now my personal mission to listen to them.

Today I saw some:

Sennheiser HD437s
Sony MDR-V300DJs, MDRXD200s and MDRXD300s
Black ear-buds that looked like IEMs (didn't want to chase guy to get a better look)
and a pair of...
beyerdynamics DT 770 PROs!!! My first sighting of beyers

I think they were the DT 770 PROs because they had gray pads. On the left ear-cup I noticed two small stickers, animal stickers I think. This sighting was at the York University campus on the bus at around 5PM Valentine's Day. I wanted to ask if he was a head-fier but he was with a girl, maybe his valentine? I noticed he had his beyers on the whole time. I don't know how he could hear what the girl was saying if they were talking .

Guy with the DT 770 PROs, REVEAL YOURSELF!

I've seen AKG K240's at school. This is odd, as I go to high school. I've seen the guy twice, both times within five minutes of school starting. I know the guy's a sophomore, but that's it. The first time I saw him I had my 5pro's slung over my my shoulders. I noticed his headphones after I passed him already. The second time I had my K81DJ's on my head. I tried making eye contact, but he either didn't notice or avoided it. Perhaps his father is the Head-Fier.
