At my school it's just ipod headphones and the cheap earbuds that you get at the dollar store. One guy has a Senn. 580.

I have never seen another pair of eggos on the street. Very rare. Not like you can walk into Best Buy and buy them.

It's the rage... IEMs!

Saw loads of people with EX51's.
Also saw some people with Skullcandy IEMs.

Saw a dude with Sennheiser HD212.
Another dude with PMX60.


Few with MX500's.

I convinced a friend of mine to get Koss Portapros instead of iBuds, and he loves them so much!! I sold my sony ex71sls to a friend's gf to replace her iBuds and she likes them much better too.

My roommate's a media studies major but insists that his ipod mini/iBuds sound flawless.

Mostly just the standard iBuds or streetsyles. I've seen a few people with MDR-V150s or MX500s too. One person had the Logitech Curve... bleh. Although one guy in my tech for stage class has either the HD 202s or HD 477s. I think they're the 202s though.

When I get my HD 555s, I'll be sure to wear them at school. No doubt people will coment on how big they are, but I'll just let them have a listen to change their minds.

If anyone saw a person in NYC on Q, B, R, A, or F train with ETY 6i... that was probly me

I go to a school in a rich white town, so practically the entire population owns iPods with iBuds. There are also quite a few kids who have TriPorts There's one kid who is actually mentally retarded, but wears around PX100's and HD497's and dances to them in the cafeteria. I suppose he's the only one who appreciates good sound.

Hung out with a dude sporting A900s in my college's library. But it turns out he's another headfier

Funny, people call me retarded when they find out how much my e2c/sr60 cost.

Maybe we all have a mental defect?

But of course. Actually it was a sort of 'playdate' . I had my AD900s and HD201 with me, so we got to compare. It was more of an observation that the only folks with good cans here I already know .

Oh snap, I brainfarted: he has 500s. Anyways, the soundbalance, in my opinion, remains pretty solid across the AT spectrum, but the 500 definitely has more of a 'closed can' style presentation. Creaking gimbals aside, a super sounding can (I want one now for my 'sitting at the coffee shop' portable); it gave me a new appreciation of the AD900's airy presentation that I didn't have before.

One of the teachers at my school has Koss PortaPros.

It snowed recently, so he was taking the bus. When I saw it, i didn't know what to make of it.
