Even if they do, it is not like you can be bothered to care with all the wonderful music flowing around you. biggrin.gif

LMAO

 

You can see from my Avatar how mine used to look - used to get some side looks then as people probably tried to figure out what they were. Unfortunately, the guitar logos wore down and after the right earpiece failed, I asked ACS to redo the silicon in plain black...havent noticed quite so many side glances now. Anyway I don't care what people think....its a fantastic to have one of the best sounding IEMs on the planet plugged into my brain ksc75smile.gif

That's awesome guys. I wouldn't care what people think.
How do you guys store them though? Do you bring a case around or just shove them in your pockets?

I use it on the street every now and then, mainly on public transport though.

Otherwise I use universal IEMs just because I can unplug them faster and I prefer to have less isolation in public.

Also don't feel very comfortable walking around on the streets with $1200 IEMs. biggrin.gif

 

Good thing is that people don't know what it is.

Just waiting for the weather to get better so I can bring out my SofterWear Atrios. If it's cold and rainy outside I won't use them outside on that particular day. I take care of my stuff and don't want them to get damaged. I would use them inside though. But if the weather is like spring and summer I would definitely use them inside and outside on bus, subway, and in the car.

The insane amount of isolation kind of freaks me out. I wouldn't recommend walking around town/city with them. I would definitely use them inside a library/coffeeshop/public transportation.

I use Tunebelt's original CD1 Carrier  made for holding cd players but it has enough space for my Cowon D2 & Atrios Earphones and  2 slots i can use to listen to my music at the same time that's how I store & can use them at the same time.

Another case You could look at is the "Ape Case" for the PSP, there's a belt attachment on it with snap's and a cargo clip that You can hang it with.
