Good call, to let it go I mean.  Not because they'll never learn, or because you think they're hopeless, or because they won't value our advice...  but mainly because he's gonna be like "WTF are you doing reading my txts homey?!?!?!"  Next thing you know, you'll be known at that creeper guy that reads other peoples' txts.  biggrin.gif

Exactly. You want to stand outside a Starbucks and tell the customers this is the worst coffee you can buy and that great coffee can be found elsewhere? You won't get far. Let them drink/listen to garbage.

Besides at work, not that often unless I know I will be somewhere for a long time.

What kinda music and source?  I find them to be a nice upgrade from the ATH-M50.
A bit of everything really. Mostly I want something that sounds fun, with a v shape signature and looks stylish. They aren't going to be for critical listening, just background noise while traveling.

I'm not the only one! I saw someone with some hot pink beats in the library, as if those couldn't get any worse. And on top of all that it was guy as well, I almost burst out laughing it was so bad.

 

I sometimes wear my srh940's in public, but they are rather big. If I know I'm going to be inside somehwere listening to them all day I'll probably take them on the daily commute, but if not I just take my phonak's instead. I don't find the difference in isolation that drastic, but sometimes the cable noise with the phonaks can be bad.I find it best to have the cable under my t-shirt or my outermost piece of clothing, so it doesn't bounce around so much.

 

Been thinking of getting some CIEMs, the cosmic ears thread has got me drooling, and surely a great other deal of people on here

I admit I've been considering ciems as well, mainly other heir audio 4A or 6A's. They just don't have the impact in terms of looks of the momentums since the beautiful inlay isn't obvious at a distance.

The momentums definitely place the bar very high in terms of looks and visual impact.

It's not quite the same with CIEMs, but depending on the colour it might stand out, if that's what you're looking for. And I have a feeling it's probably more of an exotic listening device to the "average joe"

When I wear my IEMs now they disappear under my hair anyways, as it comes down over my ears. But it's nice to have something light and small in my ears for a change

I sometimes take my Pro 900 for a walk with the E11. I mean they isolate better than beats and still sound better as well. Full headphones >>> beats as far as my opinion goes. Also I actually KNOW a Beat guy who aknowledged they are bad compared to mine! So next time I see a guy with the Beats I might as well be polite and say "I used to be stupid and retarded, buying gimmicks then I tried any non celebrity headphones and never looked back... Here have a listen"

Where do they think their beats came from? Oh never mind, it's useless.

I saw Fergie at LAX wearing Beats Pros. Looked a lot like Princess Leia.

I wear my Sennheiser HD 595's out in public no problem, especially in winter when the grados / porta-pros offend my ears ( literally - not musically ) , whereas the Sennheisers do a fantastic job of keeping my ears warm as well as rocking my music collection.

Recently picked up Heir Audio 4.Ais. Originally was more of a can man for outdoorsy use, but I think they've made an IEM convert out of me when it comes to needing something on the go.

Oh I assure you I'm aware of where Beats come from.  But the average Beats wearer is rather dim and ignorant.  In their minds, Dre must have shat them out his ass, and custom-painted them with his own tears.  How else can Beats magically put back the quality lost in modern day file compression?

I knew you know where they are made. I mean it's useless to even mention Dre Beats and their impact on society. It's a pathetic statement really.
