In a zombie apocalypse, which headphone would you take with you and which would make the most effective weapon?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

The concept of this thread is inspired by The Walking Dead as I just watched last Sunday's premier and am a huge fan.   My one headphone for listening, assuming I had a way to charge my player, would be the Ultrasone Signature DJ- great sound, durable and closed to isolate groans of the undead.

 

In terms of weaponry, I could make good use of the Velodyne VTrue.  Their weight and pointed cups could be useful.

 

Any other thoughts?

My beyer dt250 would be great for listening, seeing as hey are so durable, (another choose would be a pair of Hd25's due to their modular design and their up front and aggressive sound) and a pair of vintage Planars or Orthos would do me well as a weapon seeing as they are so heavy and can be used for bludgeoning he zombies,

If we were allowed to pick any piece of equipment for weaponry the steel cables from older headphones would be a nice choice for just whipping at the zombies

HD650 as they're open and let you enjoy the music. Open is necessary as I need to hear all things that would be going on around me.

The 650 doesn't leak too bad.

Ety HF5 and my trusty Clip+ - lightweight audio rig means more shotgun shells and the Ety can double as hearing protection.

Here is a picture of my weapon of choice.  Michonne would be jealous.

Tough choice between open and closed

Shure SE535 ofcourse. Doesn't need an amp, is extremely portable  and provides great isolation so zombies won't hear the music i'm listening too.

 

You got to be very mobile with zombies everywhere.

Thriller reference?

 

A CIEM would be better if a lot of running is involved. Imagine full sized headphones fall off, and not being able to go back. :popcorn:

I wasn't going for one but, you've figured me out

 

Anyways for an iem I would choose my X10's as they don't leak and they don't isolate me too much, and paired with my modded X3 (which at the point that a zombie apocalypse would happen, I would have already hardwired a detachable hand crank and solar panel) sound phenomenal and keep me on my heels

V-Moda M-100. It sounds good, it's tough, durable, and when folded, can make a nice brick for a weapon. Zombies beware.

As for weapon, I think I'll have to rely on running;)

For use as a weapon I would consider taking the German Maestro: POS/ InfoPoint-Series: Nearly Indestructible: GMP 8.40D It also has a steel/metal cable that could be used as a whip.

 

Otherwise I would take something light/open so I could hear around me: Sennheiser HD600

I'd take the abyss or the LCD-3. I'd just throw them at the zombies.
