Headphone Sightings 2 - Page 542

post #8116 of 11432

On the blue line into work today. One girl with Phillips Downtowns (black/brown) - those are good looking. I hope they don't sound horrid. 

 

And one guy wearing Grados. Looked like bowl pads - maybe 125's?

One of my teachers has a pair of M-50s he uses occasionally, I've seen a couple other pairs of M-50s, and my friend loves his A900s. I couldn't talk my best friend out of getting something other than the Executive Beats for Christmas frown.gif

I saw a Beats Executive and Sony MDR-1R on the bus today. The black MDR-1R's look quite sleek in-person.

IKR. I was watching a movie the other week, and this girl (obviously w/ implants, no less) has on a pair of Senns, and I say, "Wow, nice cans."

 

My parents were in the room. FML.

Does this count as a sighting? It was in our school's daily newspaper. No Beats! biggrin.gif

 

Ho Schiit, Innerfidelity is in there! *I didn't actually read the article yet*

I don't think I've ever seen anyone recommend the SE315. Not when the SE215 is so similar, yet so much cheaper. IO might have to see if I can write a segment for my uni paper. LCD2 and Stax SR07 as "budget" options anyone?o2smile.gif

Avicii with the HD650s (600?) (and MX518) in his studio.

 

 

Other than that not much besides more Beats after Christmas, and some kids wearing the Executives all day in school.

Back in my early days here on Head-Fi, I started a thread about what kind of people are in this community...ah here it is. I got some responses from fellow college folks. And yeah the threads are kind of dead at the moment. XD

I participated a bit in this student audiophile thread too:

lol RS1i.

I don't even recall hearing of the RS1i before. On the other hand, I can't think of any other headphone in that price range though other than the HiFiMAN HE-500 which is hard to drive. A Sennheiser HD650 probably would have been a better choice I think.

 

WAIT A SEC! I think I remember seeing a guy walking around campus with an RS1i! Maybe that was the author and he has a bias for it. I must find this guy! >:D

Yup, I found my old post.

I also found this kind of funny:

^ nice job wearing Sony headphones on a Sol Republic webpage


And holy moly, I just realized someone on campus was listening to a pair of Grado RS_i headphone. Jeeze.....~$500+ spent on open-back headphones and walking around campus on the first day of school when everyone is walking about. >.>
