Full-sized cans, even ones as diminutive as the SR80s, are not all that fashionable.  If I were a kid thinking of bringing mine to school, I'd want to give some thought to how I'd be scrutinized in that social pressure cooker we call high school.
 

this is true. the cans got a lot of attention, and it was hard convincing people that my sr80s were better than their dr dre monster beats or skullcandies, they also didn't believe that my grados worth $100 dollars. most of my classmates thought my headphones were strange. but it really didn't matter. i was too busy lost in my music to care what they think.

 but for the most part, they are by no means fashionable or portable.

I used to wear Grados on bike rides, so I could hear cars and avoid them (drivers are crazy in Montreal).  But on foot and indoors I love my SE530 iems.  They block sound almost completely, which allow me to really hear and enjoy the music.   And nobody can hear the lush and perfectly rendered soundtrack in me head.
