Headphone Sightings 2 - Page 6

This sucks. I'm the only one in my school (although I got one of my friends to get a KSC75) who cares for good sound. All I see around school are bad Sony clip-ons, generic earbuds the people bought just for the colors, iBuds, Sony headphones (the cheap kind that try to look professional), and more lame clip-ons.

Even wearing my K701's to school for one day didn't change anything.

I've had an encounter with a head fier at 69th street columbus ave,although he was a beginner he was knowledgable.he had some IEM clip ons,1st time I've ever seen those...he couldnt afford anything more at that time and he complimented me on my SF5Ps cool encounter .

I also used to Q train to go to work too ...and Mr.Slacker great job on Belarus.

I also seen a Super.Fi studio series on a gentleman at union square but I hate when ppl try to talk to me when my IEM is in play so I didn't make contact when I saw his inserted.

I've seen others but those are the most memorable ones.

heh, here in Singapore its bad....I see nothing but Sonys and Panasonics in the campus. Occasionally will see someone using Audio Technicas (FC5s) but thats all. People around me see my Westones and ask me what the heck is it, and they think I am mad to spend US$100 on a set of rather 'ordinary' looking earphones So far, the amount of people I see having audiophile headphones in my one year plus on campus can be counted on 1 hand...Shure E2s twice, Westones once and Super Fi3s once...

Update: Saw a high school kid looking very happy and aware that his KOSS Portapros/Sportapro cost a lot more than normal ear buds and was 'strutting' around the sunway station I was at(ya know the rather happy with yourself type of strut...)until he walked by me and then quickly looked down and walked away...why? Because he saw the Westones in my ears

AKG K601s spotted in downtown burbank, Magnolia Blvd. friday night!! (the 22nd)



I was amazed, and so tempted to go talk to him, as I just got a pair of Beyer 990s tonight. But he looked quite content sitting there rocking out, so I decide not to bother. You know how AKG'ers can get!

(okay not really at all but I'd like to think anyways)

Other than that, mostly just triports and the occasional Shure E2 or Sony in-ear. Which in turn made this sighting all the more amazing.

Subway rides now interesting !!!

Hahaha, this thread is so funny !!!

Each day, I have a 45 mins ride (Bus+Subway) to go to school and since 2 weeks now, I tried to identified the most portable rigs as I can. Sadly , 85 % of them had the stock Ipod+Ibuds (The thing that always bother me is if they pump up the volume, you can hear them arriving from 2 meters ). So far, I only spotted a few nice headphones, a pair of Grado SR-80 ( the guy didn't seem to listen them at high volume cause I was near him and couldn't hear anything).Saw a Chinese guy that seems really happy with a really expensive-looking circumaural Sony headphone. Saw a very tall guy with black/silver AKG phones on, looked very nice to me but can't recall his model. Alot of Sony mdr-150's too ( haha, thought those one were nice a year ago ), cheap Panasonics, etc.

Some Creative zen players too, wich was kind of nice among all the Ipod+Ibudz users. Unfortunately, didn't saw anyone with a SQ oriented portable rig except for the Grado SR-80 one ( Didn't saw his source tough...).
Seems like most non-headfiers prefers style/colors over SQ.

Also, there's a friend of mine who uses a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M30 with his M-Audio Firewire external soundcard but I didn't hear them. A big LOL out of this one pair that my friend really likes : Nexxtech full size can bought at Circuit City ( Radio-Shack) ( he likes them cause they are sealed and offer good bass but he will find out sooner or later that he could have get better quality for 69$, say like, the AKG K81DJ).If only I could reverse time so I could refer them to him!

Looking at all people rigs had become a real obsession for me these days !!!
It's so interesting when there's a particular worth-looking item!

More Sony MDR V700DJs at work today.

Just recall seeing a guy wearing an AKG K26P on the bus last Friday when I was on way to grab my new pair of AKG K81 DJ.

Oh boy, the things Head-Fi members do!

Common on the streets of Berlin: K26, K27, PortaPro, PX100, PX200, HP460. Oddly, I haven't seen K81dj or KSC-75 around. Of course the most common of all after ibuds are those awful nondescript sonys, like V150's. Less common but spotted in the last few months: V6, Shure E3, HD25-1, B&O A8, a couple of others.
