Only see beats around my school, 3-4 pairs today. Other than that, a pair of Souls and one or two Aviators, also those iHome headphones with the designs on them, ugh.

Here in Gotham (nee NYC), it's amazing that I don't see more people with "decent" cans than I do (hmm...that line could be misinterpreted anyplace other than here...): the most popular are B&W, which I spot with some frequency (and, FWIW, equal distribution by gender). Of course, there's a sea of Beats and Bose numbers.

 

Only two significant sightings for me thus far: the first, some five months ago, was while waiting for the D train at Columbus Circle late at night. A somewhat out-of-it guy with a guitar case sauntered up to the platform sporting a pair of Senn HD-25 1 Mk II cans. I happened to be listening to mine at the time, and he immediately recognized them, and struck up a conversation that continued after our train arrived. I couldn't shut the guy up, which wasn't necessarily a bad thing, but I was rather worn-out from the day's affairs. Only other person I saw wearing these thus far.

 

Second Significant Sighting was a few weeks ago, also on the subway (R train to Brooklyn this time...hey, it's a NYC thing): This time it was a guy sporting Beyer DT-1350s. the train was crowded, and we ended up standing next to each other. I spotted him first, then he noticed me (and my HD 25s), and gave a knowing smile and nod. It was almost like a secret handshake. :-)

 

(Might've even been a Head-Fi'er; if you're here, say Hi.)

Talked to a kid in my English class about audio a bit today, he plans on buying some m50s in the next few months! Also I'm not sure why but wearing gaming headphones seem to be a growing trend at my highschool; I've seen 3 kids wearing crappy gaming headsets O_________________0

XB500 on a Japanese girl at my school. I also saw some random Skullcandies and again, tons of beats. The Apple Earpods are becoming increasingly popular at my school. There were some kids wearing gaming headsets...Idk why though. 

 

P.S. I convinced one of my friends to get the M50 when he was thinking of getting the Beats Studios or the Bose QC15 biggrin.gif

I did this back then too.  I figured, well they play music right?

 

 

Also while here in Japan, I've seen

-Logitech UE6000

-a few in ear Beats and Solos

-white earbuds (not sure if Apple or not)

-Sony ZX300/ZX600 or whatever it is with the bright colored cables

-various Bose headphones

-I'm not familiar with IEMs, but more people use those.  No one uses full size over ear headphones.  I think the reason is mostly because if you isolate sound too much, you'll get run over by a bike haha

apple earpods/earbuds, beats and skullcandies are bad and all but what really gets me close my eyes and pretend i never saw it are the airplane earphones...i dont know why they even keep those LOOL

All I see are Beats...

post #7963 of 11352

Travelling nowadays, I see ibuds, new and old, various Bose and Beats IEMs, and cans.  No one notices my clear IEMs, or figures I am deaf.  The FitEar 334s, non custom, do have a bit more to show for them.

 

Best I seen so far on others are some black IEMs (UE I think) on one of the guys from "Shine Down" who was traveling on plane across the aisle and one row back from me back a few years ago.  I do sometimes see some Etys and such, now that they make them for iphones.

 

I am still waiting to pass through security one day and see HeadphoneAddict on the side with all his stuff spread out.  That was a funny picture he posted awhile (years) back about that incident.

Had this happen to me a couple of hours ago at a shopping centre, the lady thought I deaf when she approached me and I said "WHAT!" because of the noise isolation on my UM3X

A UMX or the original Aurisonics ASG1 are probably the easiest IEMs to mistake for hearing aids. mad.gif
