So I was setting up my high school for the winter concert, I was a freshman and I was working with a senior. I was the cool kid in school with my Bose tri-ports (these were before my head-fi days), and the kids Dad was a sound enginer at a local recording studio. So we were setting up the levels for the microphones, and I whop out my Tri-ports to listen in for the fun of it. Then he goes "Whoa! Are those Bose?", I reply yes, then he says "Wow dude, those are the best headphones money can buy. My dad insists that these are better (He then proceds to go into his backpack and pull out a pair of Shenhiser HD-25s.), and he wont buy me the bose". So I let him take a listen, and he is totaly hooked. He goes "Hey, Ill give you my schenhisers for your Bose and I'll give you $20. Me, not knowing what I was doing, said no. I now cry myself to sleep at night.
