post #7456 of 11283

I see tons of beats and bose qc and triports but the at the beginning of the year i saw this kid with sennheiser hd428's and needless to say we have become good friends!

This is one cool thread.

 

Anyway my friend came up to me one day, asking me if i would like to buy his beats.

 

I asked him why he bought it in the first place, and he was like: "i thought it would be something good. turns out it's no better than my senn cx680."

 

Not sure if to be disappointed that he wasted his money or to be happy that at least some non head-fi-ers know the true standard of beats. Haha!

 

A few sightings recently as well, guy with a m50s on the streets, shure se215, sony ZX700, quite a few AT WS-xx, and most importantly, an ULTRASONE EDITION 8 basshead.gif

 

I can't believe how many people can stand the stock ipod buds. LOL

 

Relatively new to head-fi, I'm getting worried about how I would save money once I graduate and have a job redface.gif

So far on campus I've seen Aviators, DJ1, M50, SRH840, K702, SR80i, HD595, HD600, D2000 and recently SE215 and SR325is, along with beats/random earbuds-IEMs/etc. Which I find weird since almost half of those are huge open cans that should never be taken outside, the HD600 was gigantic on that relatively small guy's head :D

Silver aviators, Sennhesier 205, 215, and 515( silver grilles ) if i recall. I'm not a Sennheimer guy so not used to them, see I can't even spell Sludgeheiser correctly...wink.gif

Also a JVC S600 I think. I said "it's nice to see some decent cans..er ummm headphones " as i was walkin past with my IEM's going to the two guys and  I made a hand gesture about the sides of thier head. One guy looked a little "slow" and gave me a blank stare, other guy nodded. The blank stare was sort of like what the hell do you want. So rather than giving him the other one finger hand gesture I just laughed it off. Not my problem hes having a bad day or is a "slow" sort.

Have to be sort of polite and if I never comment I'll never know who's from here ( Victoria ). So far only met one ,local head-fier. But I know there's more.

Oh and today I also saw some Amfiton silver TDS-15, but they were on my head in the window reflections.dt880smile.png

i find it pretty cool how a seasoned head fier can spot and identify most headphones and model numbers by sight on the road lol.ive only seen myself in glass here in the caribbean wth my k550 *forever alone head fier,lol, lot of ibuds,beats and no name headsets. first time wearing it in public today and ppl eyes just opened up when they saw me put this large thing on my head.

Saw a football player on campus with Sony MDR-XB500 today. Nothing special, but it was just nice to see him not wearing beats or ibuds.
post #7468 of 11283

At school I have seen 3x senn 518hd, and probably 10 pairs of studios and pros. Private school makes me sad.

post #7469 of 11283

Finally, another reason to take photos with cute girls wearing nice IEMs :S 

And before anyone ask, I'm not desperate :)

post #7470 of 11283
Saw a few PortaPro's and a ton of those Sony MDRNC7 headphones.

Once I get a K701 and an O2 amp...all I need to do is go to a library and/or study area, hehehehe

^ I can't believe how that < 30 second scene boosted sales of the K701 in Japan. *impressed*
