As I got off, I stared back at him and I realised why he might be doing this... he had a pair of E3c's on and possibly knew what the Qualia 010's were.
Hah, that's what you get for using Qualias as a portable. I'm surprised he didn't try to mug you... I would, however, expect more people to know about Qualias, seeing how they're on their way to being a Sony prestige-generating tool, than Staxes or Beyers or AKG's.
Around school and work, I don't see anyone with a single good pair of cans. Not one. Wait, I'm wrong - I saw one guy using a V6 out of a portable. Probably a musician or an audio engineer of some sort. And, there was a girl with HD497's. Other than that, it's mostly stock buds or Sony buds, streetstyles, Sony DJ's (V150's), and COBY's. Lots and lots of COBY's... Around NYC, I've seen a lot of A8's. Guess they're fashionable, and admittedly, they do
look pretty cool.
I've let a few people try out my 001's, and they were amazed. They simply didn't believe something could sound that good. Oh well...
