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
