Had nice long chat with a hippie friend of mine at work today.  I almost shed a tear when I saw the pair of Koss KSC75's on her desk.  I, of course, complimented her on her taste :-)

That guy is a beast!!!!  The music wasn't cool though.

Headphones seem to be becoming more of a statement than before; embodied in Beats, Soul, etc.
Much the same way that Nike started making colorful shoes at some point. They went from being just something to cover your feet, like headphones were just something to send music to your ears, into a fashion/socioeconomic status statement. Of course, in that process, the function of the thing gets over looked, because who cares how comfortable a shoe is or how good headphones sound as long as they make you cool?

But that is just me rambling with regards to my overthinking nature.

It could just be that people like red.

Yeah that seems to be a general trend nowadays. I don't like red coloured products myself except for a few exceptions (I have a matte-red Nikon camera since the bronze colour looked weird and I already have three black cameras). If it's a (PRODUCT) RED item, I would be more inclined to purchase it than if it were not, but I still tend to gravitate towards less bright colours.

Leather dress shoes still look better than fruit-colored Nikes and plain plastic/metal studio headphones will always look better than "xtreem urban attitood" gimmick headphones.

 

Pine are my walls,

Black is my headphone,

Within my grim studio,

No fruity colors shall be shown

I agree, machoboy, but it seems that the general public and I rarely agree, and it is the general public that marketing targets, not me.

Apart from the sea of Beats headphones, I saw an HD558, HD201, Sony MDR7506, Sony XB_00 (they all look the same to me), Sony MDRNC7, Sol Republic Amps HD, Sol Republic Tracks.

I also found this kind of funny:

^ nice job wearing Sony headphones on a Sol Republic webpage


And holy moly, I just realized someone on campus was listening to a pair of Grado RS_i headphone. Jeeze.....~$500+ spent on open-back headphones and walking around campus on the first day of school when everyone is walking about. >.>

beats are rampant over here, so many people have them it`s really insane. I have seen like one xb500 and one random headset I couldn`t identify at my school. Same goes for going around in the city. There are a few Bose headsets I see appear but lol, that doesn`t make it really better. Kinda wanna bring my he-500 to school, just to do it. lol
