same sex only, and every time I go to the airport, even when I dont bring a cary on bag I always get pulled too the side to be fondled, when I have the money too I am getting the fudge out of this country.

I took mine through 6 security checkpoints each way(12 total) on my last trip and nobody said anything about it. YMMV.

Orwell would have recognised the US in 2012 - he was just 28 years too early with his timing.

I read that when you first posted it, and I found it appauling. Seems like besides people having to walk a straight line, they are also forced to know their rights properly to avoid such absurd situations.

I did do some dumb things (hauling the headphones out of a backpack filled with electronics, etc.), but I don't believe I deserved that kind of treatment anywhere. Still, I went back. The headphone section at that place was amazing, even go so far as to have a full Sennheiser section display and relegating Beats to a shelf next to under-$50 on-ears. This photo was about half the selection:

LOL That experience sucks. Actually, I had a similar one last year at a local store. The funny thing was that I had bought the headphones from the same store several months ago and it's just absurd for them to think that I'll carry around with me the warranty every time I get in the store. Anyway, they wanted me to go in the back room, so they can check the security tapes but I just took my phone and said that I'm calling the police for unlawful detention. They got kinda bummed and decied to just check my bag and the headphone section for the packaging of the headphones and after they couldn't find an empty one one they let me go. Well, my case can't compete with yours coz I it was in my country, so I knew the language and I have a Master of Laws degree, so I know my rights perfectly and can defend myself before security guards who like to pretend they have actual authority and also in the court. I can't imagine how hard it is to be in a foreign country and the same thing to happen and to not be able to explain properly the matter.

Anyway, to get back on topic, I would never take my cmoybb to a airport coz it's toо risky - looks like а mints box but has electronics inside and some suspicious swithches. You're just begging for a strip check, so they can find the c4 in your a*s that is activated by the cmoy. I would take something small like e6 or my e11 coz at least on the case it says headphone amplifier and is easier to explain

The thing about my experience in Germany was that the store I was at didn't even carry Audio-Technica. Their security didn't know that, of course, but I did make that point to them.
