Headphone Sightings 2 - Page 538

post #8056 of 11048

Today was the second time I spotted a grado (Sr 80) in the wild. The first one was in Netherlands, but I cant remember the model :/ There was also a guy using Porta pros.

Other than that there was the usual stuff like beats and ibuds...

Yeah. I had him google them-he said that they were too big to carry around with his Galaxy S3-LMAO. He didn't understand the concept of an amp. Nor the idea of music beyond MP3s. He didn't know what a bitrate was. I could not stop laughing.

Don't!!! I'd go for a pair of beats for 20$ redface.gif

They are a fun headphone at that price x3

Smartphones are getting way too big these days. At least girls have purses and handbags. We guys have to stuff them in our tiny pockets...

So my mom didn't like the headphones straight from her iPhone and put them in the drawer without a second thought. Given that she'd been asking for a decent set of closed headphones to use at work, I was sorta stunned to find she had exactly that. Now I just have to find a little portable amp for her. Maybe a CmoyBB if she doesn't turn up her nose at it being in an Altoids tin. Maybe if I tell her it'll keep it from being stolen off her desk...

or just get her a CAL! and trade it for the Beyers -= profit :P

What did he say? tongue.gif

Saw a couple pass by me in a shopping centre, the guy wearing a Audio Technica M50 and the girl wearing a Sennheiser 2xx series.

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

I'm an art student and take offence to this! hehe. Nothing wrong with pointing out good brush stroke quality or pointing out feelings that radiate from a piece and speak to you.

Guy on the blue line train home last night was wearing either Denon D5000 or D7000's - he was one car over so I wasn't close enough to tell which.

A few years ago I used to be an art student. The post was tongue-in-cheek, and only reflected my own past impressionable self. No ill feelings were intended  redface.gif

Saw a guy this morning on the Subway Platform wearing Sennheiser Momentums, never saw them in person. They look really nice.

post #8070 of 11048

I saw a very well dressed girl wearing these today.  I didn't know what to think...  Shake my head or propose??

This is in Japan by the way.
