I wish people would bring fun headphones to school >.<<br />
Saw a vmoda (just caught a glimpse of someone wearing it in the lounge at school while walking by)
Saw the M50s
saw the shure srh840


I haven't been bringing my LCD2 since it's been raining quite a bit

I'd love to wear an HD800 to school just to see how many people just gawk at the huge piece of space-age technology on top of my head. Which would be funny because it's a Computer IT school.

Surprisingly I don't get TOO many stares when I wear either in public. Of course it stands out and I get glances as I walk by people.
Then I have to whip out my "portable" amp to change the volume.

You get funny looks in an Apple store when you beeline for the Amperiors instead of the Beats.

 

Apparently, many just automatically assume teens all go for Beats.

I was just thinking the same thing the other day when I whipped out my phone and use Shazam to find out the name of a song. Sometimes it was months before I learned the name of a song that I liked, and then you had to wait to go to the store to get it if you didn't tape it off the radio. With Shazam, it's like that chapter of the book is finally closed. smile.gif

I'd assume the LCD-2 would draw more attention due to it being far bulkier and its retro look.

Not sure if this makes you an audiophile, but it sure is fun to see the way people look at you when you listen to an open-backed headphone on the bus or walking down the street.

...when people stare at you weird when you tell them that the "thing" attached to your MP3 player is a portable USB DAC/amp (FiiO E7) or Altoids tin amp (CMoy amp).


...when you post a lot of audiophile-related things on Facebook and someone takes your advice and is really happy about the purchase (V-MODA M-80); or when people like how you point out the flaws in music nowadays (the Loudness War).

you know when your last will and testament is to be burried next to your headphones........

and you can be positive when the funeral home doesn't have enough plots to fit em all.......

When you have a line of 20 tabs open because you want to watch a video or  try out a band that you just heard about.  But you are enjoying the current album way to much to pause.

When you meet someone at a party for the first time, they say something that could *possibly* lead to a conversation about audio gear and at least 5 of your friends do a coordinated intervention with tactical precision to stop it from happening...
