I am now at the crossroads of upgrading in the hierarchy of headphone audiophila. But I have a lingering thought in mind that is leaving me confused as to what decision to make. About eight years ago, I went to Disney World and came across a pair of headphones that left me without words. In this case, superlatives such as stunning, impactful, and breathtaking were all I could say of them. It was in an area called Rafiki's Planet Watch at the exhibit The Song of the Rainforest if I recall correctly ( http://stitchkingdom.com/planetwatch/ ). I think they were the Beyerdynamic DT990 Premium because I believe they were open, sturdy, comfy and gray.
Does anyone know if those headphones I heard were the DT990?
EDIT: It may not have been in that part of Disney World, but I do remember trying headphones as described somewhere in Disney World. Maybe I heard them in the Epcot.
EDIT 2: It was not there because this photo was taken in 2009, a while after my visit to Disney World in 2003. Koss portapros were certainly not what I heard and floored me since I know they were circumaural. It could be Disney World switched headphones in the booth between 2003 and 2009. Either way, those are average headphones--which I personally feel pale in comparison to the KSC75--compared to something I know was unique.
I now am tending to think it was in the Epcot where I may have heard the DT990. Anyone got any ideas?
