-Are they wearing such a big thing on their heads as a sort of blanket to shield them from the outside world?

etc etc...

Yes, in general. Depends which models more though.

Like K1000s'd look pretty silly, but I'd wear 595s out.


edit - Also highly sexual looking headphones can be huge, especially woodies.

If you care (at all), then you don't qualify as a verified spaz/geek/weirdo! If you do qualify, you don't give a rat's ass what other people think, so long as you're enjoying fantastic sound through your full-size cans!

well,

I don't think it's weird. I wear my Ultrasone outside all the time because I just like that big Can sound.

I just don't care what other people think about it. It's a free country, and they may think whatever they like. Heck, they're even open cans and yet I don't care.

Some are okay, some are not. It really depends on your fashion sense if you can pull it off or not.

I don't wear anything larger theb a DT770 in public, and I guess it might be kinda weird.

Hmm... there should be another option - Yes, but I don't mind, in fact I like it I take wear all of my headphones outside including walking to my favorite cafe in Deep Darth Beyers, I actually had a girl flash me and give me the peace sign out of her car window when I was wearing those

Yeah -- they do that to me, too....
What do you expect, when they see you have a woody.

Wow, 27 to 27.

Tied.

I don't wear the DT880s outdoors because they don't really isolate.

I have the Shure E4c's for that.

I don't think its weird though, I would give a nod of approval if I ever saw anyone with full-size headphones (better than Bose) on the streets.

How about, "I wonder if those sound really good and maybe that guy is really enjoying some music?"

I don't see any problem with wearing any headphones outside.

i wear darth beyers wherever.. and those will likely end up being upgraded to deep cup darths, or ultrasone edition 9s.. and will still be wearing whatever wherever I go

vanity is stupid.

In fact I'd not mind if my ESW9s had illuminated arrows pointing down on them.
