At least you have an SR-80. To get the KSC-35 was an uphill battle...

hehe, just wearing my koss UR30s in public gets me some heavy stares, and they are meant to be "urban"
people just look at me like "wow hes crazy, i wonder whats so special about those massive headphones"
haha, its irritating though, even walking around with buds here will get you minor stares.
im probably gonna buy a friend's senns soon, not sure what model they are, but they are well decent. ive tried them, they are a little on the bright side, but it depends on the music i reckon. (im gonna borrow them and see)
id really like to get a decent headphone collection and use different headphones for different music and moods.
ill build a headphone amp probably when ive got time.
im probably gonna get some KSC75s for walking around, then i can take them everywhere.
ive got the zen micro, which is ridiculously small.

ive gotta say though, that i never enjoy my mobile musical experiences as much as i have in my car or at home. the main problem is storage capacity, im always stuck listening to **** i dont feel like listening to.
the zen micro is only 5GB. before that i had a mp3 cd player.
my music collection is about 90GB, about to almost double when my rock friends attempt to get me to (their) dark side.

Well in response to the threads question, I would say my parents support my hobby. They really support me in almost anything I do which is great. It takes some time to get them to understand why I take up certain hobbies and whats going about those hobbies but after that they fully back me up once they have the data.

for my $.02...

my parents are impartial to it... mainly because they don't know how much any of it costs

most of my friends are impartial as well. they know that i'm in a different league than they are (they're them bose-addicts), so they give me the stare, then the respect of my opinion which they admit is probably better than that of a bose-lover. A couple, though, gave in. one is spending lots of $$$ on an all around set of minirigs. the other immediately gave in (and i mean immediately) after he auditioned the sr225's at my request. and, of course, i got people to buy an hd580 and a couple hd280's.

my roommate just ignores me

as for those in my dorm building... well, they either don't notice (whew!) or they're just wide-eyed about my setup.... or half of it

I once had my friend wear 25sp in public .. and wow do people really stare at her. Apparently not a natural sight around here.
