Headphone Sightings 2 - Page 570

post #8536 of 11688

Diplo posted a photo on facebook, and he was wearing dt770's.

post #8537 of 11688

At my cousin's house of all places. (3 cousins and 1 of their wifeys there)

 

What surprised me was all of them had cans and IEMs but they're not audiophiles per say.. they just have money to buy whatever they want thanks to their parent's business. 

 

Headphones:

Klipsch Image Ones

Beats Studio (wife's)
Beats Executive
Audio-Technica ATH-M50s (these surprised me, I was so happy to see these out of all the other ones obviously)

 

IEMs:

Beats Tours

Klipsch S4

Audio-Technica CKS55 

 

I groaned at all the Beats lying around.. I hope to convert my family over to the world of Audiophiliacs. :) 

 

It's a work in progress to say the least.

Guy at school who actually listens to decent music with Klipsch S4s. Another guy who had Shures, lost them. Now has ~$30 MEecs, but he understands amps and DACs and stuff, so he's fun to talk to.

Saw the Stax sr009 in public =O
at an audio show xD

Woo Audio is over at SSI now with lots of flagships.

Anyway, as for sightings, saw the beyer t50p, hd25-i-ii, and a few at m50.

Girl sitting on the plane next to me pulled out white ATH-M50s, they look better in person than I expected.

 

Walking around the airports I saw a ton of Beats a few Beyers, a couple of AKG sets and the only Shure cans were my 840s.

I was there too, and altough a fair comparison wasn't possible due to different amps, i came away with the conclusion that they are all great sounding headphones.

 

I don't know about you, but to my surprise, i wasn't bowled over by the Stax 009, maybe  my expectations were too high, after reading nothing but great things about them. they're great sounding headphones, but the others held they're own very well, and had a much better price performance ratio.

They are. I (coincidently) saw many HD 25-ii's w/ the mic attachment on many movies (including old school 1990ish ones, before I was even born) when I owned mine. Also I believe they still use them on many news channels and the NFL. Cost premium over the regular HD 25-ii's are quite a bit though.

post #8543 of 11688

A lot of tv sport commentators in Australia seem to use HD25-ii. They are a pretty common sight from what I can see.

 

I saw two people that I know wearing ATH-m50s, once I get the chance to I will have a talk with them :P

 

Also saw the Adidas version of the HD25s. What a sight! Do I need to mention the huge population of beats that's around every 2nd corner of Sydney?

I had one of those mixers

Yamaha MG24/14fx or 32/14fx

 

 

Also, you guys are lucky :)

Best I've seen at my school is... well.... nothing. Beats, Apple earphones and land and certainly least, $2 discount store earphones

Most but not all, and not everyone likes how you do hear yourself (and those around you) when wearing them. Lots of potential situations (intimiate stage with a lower performance amplification - for instance, especially if you need to harmonize) where they could be an impediment rather than an aid.

Chatted briefly with a guy wearing Sennheiser Momentums on the Blue Line coming home today.

I liked the stax sr007mk2 more than the 009 on the WES and so did a few other friends
You could have moved the headphones around to use with the different amps.
post #8550 of 11688

walking to class (at college), and saw a guy sporting the m50s black.

i always see a ton of beats users or some low end earbuds/iems.

 

but it was nice to see.
