Deaf drivers are actually considered safer then average there used to relying almost exclusively on the sight.  Personally I think fully open headphone should be allowed as they don't block outside noise very well at all and earplugs should be allowed if your in a non sealed vehicle e.g windows down,motorcycle,convertible as your able to hear alot more outside noise like that and the sound levels depending on how fast you are driving are high enough to cause hearing loss if you drive to long like that.

An older gentleman in his mid 40's got stopped for driving with his HE300's and they actually took away his headphones. He told me this when coming back to the store and asked if we happened to carry the lcd2's to replace them.

 

Now I wonder... did he find a pair of the audez'e and will he try driving with them? confused.gif

I saw a guy in his early twenties on the train wearing a pair of ATH m50's , not a pair you can readily buy in Ireland without the Internet, so I thought to myself, wow a man with a passion for sound ! +1 

 

I'm almost certain I've seen a pair of grado's in Trinity College too, was a mere glimpse, but i'm almost certain!

 

Its funny how these sightings are so rare :)

Yesterday was quite a field day for headphone sightings. I saw an M50, a Wesc headphone, Shures, a Sennheiser HD449 and a 10(?) year old kid sporting a Beats Pro. :D

On Friday I saw a black man walking down Howard St wearing a pair of Sony XB's and an Above & Beyond t-shirt. Only good sighting as of late. Lol

Sent from my SGH-T989 using Satanic Unicorn magic.

Not a sighting exactly, But I walked into Bestbuy today and went to the headphone section and an employee had a cart full of HD280s/380s, every Pioneer HDJ model and a few others like the AiAiAi tma-1s and was stocking them on the shelf. This surprised me a lot, Bestbuy seems to be selling a lot more quality cans now.

Friend came over yesterday. Let him have a listen to MS Pros, DT880, DT440. He didn't seem to really get into it all, until I showed him my XB500...

 

Everybody wants bass bass, nothing but bass.

 

Oh well, let them eat cake!

Yesterday, I saw a white Sennheiser CX-series IEM in the morning and a Sony XB500 in the afternoon.

A few weeks back I saw a man who was probably in his 70's rockin a pair of Portapros in a local foodcourt. On my commute on the bus I have seen all sorts of phones, I won't bore you with the crap that most people wear but a few notable exceptions are: AH D5000, Senn HD600, CAL!, and Shure 840s.

The only thing I see at my middle school is beats. I try to educate people, but without high end audio equipment on hand, explaining it without an auditory aid is hard. This hobby is hard with my only income being a $10 a week allowance frown.gif. My dream portable rig= Dx100+Mk3+UM Miracle = $2,430. Time required too get there: 243 weeks = 4.6 yearsconfused_face.gif

You have a huge head start, you have good taste in gear.
