then asked about her headphones, then you would have seemed to be your everyday average weirdo and not a pervert or yet another guy trying to chat her up

I've been known to talk to complete strangers (how I make most of my friend 80% of the time it works out

Saw a teenager in the city with what seemed like an AKG K242. Kind of a refreshing sight amidst all the Beats as far as bigger headphones go.

It's kind of funny what my concept of "high end" changed. I say my friend with X10. I told him that I was planning on buying one as a back up/exercise iem, and he thought I was crazy to use such an expensive iem for that. Well, I told him that I wasn't going to run with $1000 customs. I remember, last year at this time, I thought $100 iems were costly.

At the beginning of my long and tiresome journey to find ultimate sound quality over the last two years my budget went up from £50 to £200 for the amount I'd be prepared to spend on "proper headphones", this journey's latest installation occurred at 7:00am when royal mail (not complaining, in fact, it was about 48 hours earlier than what Amazon told me) decided to knock on my door and give me my monoprice 8320s, I'll admit, these are not really expensive at all, the point is though that although I'm satisfied with these, I'll probably end up getting shure srh215 or something like that and when I have the money those will become my "expendable" headphones in 10 years, my maximum budget could be somewhere like £10000 and £1000 for "expendable" ciems. Partly down to stupid inflation, but also because it's the nature of the "game"

 

did I say something?

 

What did I see today hmmmmmmm

Apple earbuds, enough to fill a considerably size-able bucket (I'll leave you to imagine what considerably size-able means)

sony zx300 (and they were red in case you wanted to know)

some odd headphones I could only think of as being from Tesco's Technika range, don't quote me on that because

a) I may be wrong

b) you haven't seen the headphones

I've seen s guy with a turbine gold and my friend has a meelec runaway wireless headphone and also a ton of Bose qc15s interestingly enough.

Saw a girl with an Audio Technica ATH-ESW9 a few days ago wearing them around her neck. She described the headphones as not for someone who wants something really bassy, but headphones with great mids or something along those lines. The earpads looked pretty nice and comfortable, and the wood was quite dark and looked much nicer and luxurious than I expected from pictures.

I don't know how they take the pictures but a lot of stock photos for woodies of different brands are terrible.
The AT ESW11ltd is a good example, the denon d7000 is another example.

I have never seen anyone rocking a portable amp outdoors. I also haven't seen anyone using non-standard cables on their headphones in public, either. I'd love to see such a thing, but I haven't.

Yesterday, I saw an old guy (60s-70s) wearing a XB700. Not 500, but 700. It was slightly worn out, but more from long-term wear-and-tear than mistreatment as far as I could tell.

I also saw a Fanny Wang for the first time. It was the noise canceling white model... something 3000, if I recall. Looked like a rugged rubberized, less tacky version of a white Beats by Dr. Dre headphone. Speaking of Beats, while people seem to love to blame it on the 10-39 age group, I've been seeing many people in the 40-59 age group wear them as well. I wonder if they got it as a gift or recommendation from someone younger, or if they themselves were victims of marketing.

I will do it very soon I am going to get my first high end ciems and buy an aftermarket cable for it. You didn't see it maybe but many of us actually do it. It is just, we are such a small percentage in the community, nobody notices us nobody sees us. If by chance somebody would see it, most probably they wouldn't even understand what are these toys, why that cable is so expensive, are you insane you paid 800 euros for a mp3 player (yeah they called mp3 player believe me). I don't even want to go amp section. So long story short, yeah we do and I am willing to do more and more as my student wallet allows.

 

About the topic, I saw somebody with newest Denon's, D7100 I think I am not mistaking. Looks like they tried to make it somewhere in between with Beats and their style. I prefer old Denons honestly.

Just noticed that two of my friends are audiophiles, and one has a head-fi account as well. Power of facebook. Anyways, I saw a IE80 today at a SAT academy. Sadly, it was paired with an ipod.

My friend just posted this photo to Facebook. Nice to see him rockin' the M50.
