Famous people with audiophile headphones/mics

post #1 of 77
Thread Starter 

I am trying to put together a list of celebrities and or anybody famous that uses anything audiophile in their collection. Can you guys help name the person and the equipment they are using or have been seen using. Source if you can find it. I'll start with some minor ones:

Kesha-Ultrasone Pro series

Lil Wayne-Beyerdynamic DT770(?)

Frank Sinotra- AKG Gold plated Microphone

Was he seen wearing these out in public?  Like, maybe they're his own personal cans?

 

I wouldn't count any studio sightings, since in many cases those headphones probably belong to the studio or some nearby audio professional.  It would certainly explain why, for example, Weezy and Justin Bieber have been publicly associated with Beats but have been spotted wearing studiophile gear at times.

yeah he was in a studio. i am just  compling a list of things they were seen in. it doesn't matter if it wasn't there or the studio's. this....of course is also intended to undermine the beats nation by having many of our headphones "featured" by these artists

 

it was in the video "we are the world"

C.J. Pierce from Drowning Pool uses the Ultrasone HFI-780.  There's an Eminem commercial with a cartoonish version of him with the Denon D5000/D7000, though I'm not sure if he uses the real deal.
