Headphone Sightings 2 - Page 507

post #7591 of 12330

Well, not exactly a "headphone" sighting, but someone in one of my classes was helping me with some work, and someone sits down talking about how he has thousands of songs on his 16gb iphone, I continue to wonder to myself how low quality the files are and how I have flac files so I can't have too many on my phone. After this, the guy helping me with work was like "err, my whole collection is in flac too?". Then comes the "DO YOU GO ON HEAD-FI" and he does. Pretty cool!

I saw an Ultrasone HFI5/780 (I can't tell the difference between the two without a side-by-side comparison).

saw a Sennheiser HD201, not a suprise as FYE does sell them for 20$

 

a really old looking pair of Koss UR29.

 

some Auvio "Concert Class"'s

 

iBuds, Skullcandy Buds, and the 5$ Beats Replica buds that are sold in "5-Below" Stores.

 

 

 

nothing too amazing, i wanna have a real life Grado friend -_-

I think we've all had our eye fill of these. At least SKDY developed the Aviators, they aren't a total disappointment :p

Walking to class today I saw an AKG k550, 2 Sony xb500s, and Sennheiser PX 100.

This probably shouldn't count but I saw a kid wearing a super colorful tee shirt with akg k701s on them.  I was going to say something but I figured since he was using crappy iBuds he probably didn't even know what company made them.

what i really want to see, someone wearing a pair of Grado's oh yes, how long the conversation would go on.

I've seen at least 3 pairs of Grado at my campus already, a SR325is and 2 SR80/125. Don't really understand why someone would take them outside when they are open and leak sound so badly.

 

That being said the only Grado that has impressed me is the RS1i...warm and smooth, even RS2i can't touch that. The SR line are a pain to deal with, physically and acoustically with their shallow pads and treble spikes :(

A guy wearing Koss KSC-75 and a girl wearing some Skullcandy thing.

For the sake of some situational awareness maybe?

Saw a guy coming off the Big Blue Bus in West L.A. with a pair of Beats Executives on.  I was with a friend who isn't a Head-Fier - but has heard Beats and detests them.  He asked me what kind of cans those were and how much they cost.  I told him, and he facepalmed.

Liquid Lightning headphone amplifiers... and the upcoming Liquid Spark!

again, you dont necessarily have to be in dead-silence to listen and enjoy with Grado's even though they may leak/let in sound

 

 

and RS1i's... oh thats definitely on my list when i reach enough funds

I couldn't careless about that since I bring my HE-500, AKG701 and ATH AD2000 outside anytime.
