I was only barely able to stop in time, but I had to save those cans from being damaged. I put my car on the side of the road to check if the guy was ok (he did a deer in the headlights kind of thing and turned really, really pale).

 

He apologized saying he was into his music a bit too much, then mumbled something like "but I doubt you'd understand"... I said "try me", and pointed at my ES10 on the passengerseat of my car. He smiled and said "ok, maybe you do". He didn't know about head-fi, so I told him to check it out. Then we went on our ways again...

Awesome story

Talk about wearing hd800s in public, do you ever get any "we surrender our planet to your superior species" comments with those futuristic high tech cans?

I've never been stopped about my headphones.
The only time I was stopped was while in the school library because another head-fier wanted to try them ;P

I don't have much experience with sony headphones. 

I'm surprised you didn't get slapped, har har

Portapros are all over the place here.

Yeah portapro's are seen more often than beats in Norway (it's been very popular for several years)

met a girl on a cruise this summer(i'm 16, and she is about the same) and she had a koss dj 100 powered by a fiio e5. i showed her my m50 limited and she seemed to like them. it's nice to know that some people believe in good audio quality at my age. all the people around my school that have good headphones, they either bought from me or bought with my guidance. she was even a head-fier and liked avengers. if only she lived in virginia.

Wow I would be amazed if I EVER ran into anyone actually using a decent set of cans with an actual amp no matter the size.

Huh well I guess people are smarter in Norway, here in the US all I see are $20 sonys, beats, skullcandys and iBuds.

haha no, they're not. There's several people with beats as well ;) People buy what the stores offers them (skullcandy, beats, bose) Although I see more sennheisers/AKG/denon's entering the shelves in some stores!

I saw a Philips Citiscape Uptown on the bus today. Wow those are some gorgeous headphones! I can only imagine how awesome the new Sennheiser Momentums look.
post #7408 of 11280

saw sennheiser amperiors- first time!

3 guys were sitting across from me on the bus.
One was wearing the HD25, another wearing some coby headphones and the last wearing the sony zx700.
