Here's a story that is appropriate for the thread, as it is technically a "non-audiophile reaction to high-end headphones" -
A few weeks ago I was in Honolulu w/ my girlfriend, laying out on the beach just as people do there. We had gotten like reserved beach chairs that also had food / drink service. So we're sitting there, talking to the waiter guy figuring out our order. Keep in mind, we're laying out at the beach, so my girlfriend is in a bikini. As soon as we finish ordering, he takes the menu's from us and says "nice cans!" as he walks away. So we kind of do a double-take and are like "um…. WHAT? Did he just say that? Did he REALLY just say that?? WTFFF!!!" The guy had been very nice and we were at a pretty nice hotel, so I just couldn't believe he would have said something like that to my girlfriend, especially with me being right there. So I was totally racking my brain, trying to decide if we had just imagined it, if we had heard someone else, or just something that sounded like it, when I finally realized that I had my new K545's around my neck. He was complimenting my headphones! So, we finally figured it out and had a good laugh about it.
