In downtown Minneapolis in the past two months I've seen two pairs of Grado SR60i's, two ATH-M50s (one of the Grados and M50s were even on the same bus), I've seen a pair of the Philips Cityscape Downtowns in the skyways and some V-Moda M80s. A girl that catches the bus at my stop in the mornings to work suddenly started wearing some Sennheiser HD 202 II's very recently. Also, I swear I saw a guy wearing some UE iems (don't remember which ones) on the bus last week. I've seen a fair number of different Sennheisers over the past summer too (an HD558 and an HD598 for sure) when the weather was warm. Thankfully, I don't notice many Beats among the daily business-class commuters.
 

when i was last in the big city i saw only m50s

Saw a 40something suit with a Sansa Clip+ and a pair of Yamaha EPH-100 IEMs.

In art class everyone was talking about who has beats and what kind they are and how "awesome" it is.

It is an art class... maybe they were being ironic? 

 

*hopes*

Art students are very impressionable and easily wow'd.

 

Example:

"Just look at those brush strokes!"  

"I love the way he captured the mood!"

 

Now just add the sentence "It's the perfect balance of sound and design - it said so on the box!"

Just a middle school art class, but they are easily wow'd with the headphones. 

 

The part where they actually act like fools is that when I tell them about a headphone they might like they're too stubborn to listen to any alternative other than the beats and still get the beats.

 

About 10 at my school have beats, 6 people with stock buds, and 1 person wearing skullcandys.

iBuds, iBuds, iBuds everywhere. Cheapy sony's, iHome headphones (Really people?), and don't get me started on beats. Coby's, off brands, its a mess over here in Texas.

Ah - well then, I'm not so worried. I cannot tell you the last time I worried about the opinions of 6th graders - probably, when I was in 6th grade. 

 

If these were college art students it might be more worrisome. But even then - I tend to worry about my own decisions, more than other peoples.

In other news, I saw a lime-green Q460. Looks surprisingly good.

But the white K551s look even better, too bad they have a 3 foot cable with the stupid phone control for iSlaves
