They're actually pretty good if you drill holes in the cups. Sounded quite close to my AKG K 141 Mk. II's tonality to my ears.

Maybe there's hope for the students at the university where I teach.  I haven't been seeing the usual Beats.  I've been seeing a lot of white Sonys, which are obviously made to look like the Beats.  I think they are the MDR-ZX100.  No idea about they're quality, but they're not Beats.

I saw at my school:
Beats, Beats and more Beats....
Cheapo iBuds
Aiaiai TMA-1
And that's it.
I'm probably the only one in school to have a pair of clear Shure SE425,

See too many beats. I can understand ibuds and cheap earbuds but spending lots of money on beats makes no sense. I saw a kid I know wearing a pair of custom UEs but hes into recording and what not. Anyways since you guys can identify cans better than me (Im new) would it be possible to tell me what she is wearing in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fLvhtf09V4g ; the indie kid inside me wants to know.

They look alot like Sennheiser 414, but with a closed earcup. So I'm not quite sure.

I was thinking 414 too, but it seems bigger for some reason... Maybe some retro pair in the style of the 414s?

It's certainly not a 414.  I think I've seen this one while hunting for vintages last year.  Maybe a Radio Shack brand, or a computer company rebrand seems to ring a bell.  There was no shortage of headphones that borrowed this shape.  I think even AKG and Beyer did it.
 
I'm gonna try not to think about it anymore.  That would be half my day gone, for sure.

true, the AKG K60 had a similar cone, albeit on rectangle pads and a different headband. 
 
The headband more than anything is what had me thinking Senn 414... but clearly, that's not what it is.

Lifehacker is awesome, glad to find another reader here.

On another note, it seems like 10 people at my school got beats solo for Christmas. I saw a large full size can on someone, no brand name or styling of a higher end can so i figure it was from some cheap store. First full sized can ive seen on someone other than me. I also saw a Bose on someone for the first time today.
