I noticed that too. Michael Phelps was also wearing headphones instead of ear buds yesterday but I didn't recognize the brand. This may be a cultural turning point for headphones.

Yeah I saw phelps and the brand is SOL Republic and I havent researched them yet. Hes had a different color headband every swim haha, I wonder if they are interchangeable or if hes got a different pair for any mood lol. Also wonder how much money they are paying him.

at my school, theres the normal sight of your everyday overhyped Beats.
 
i have seen some Bose Hphones, which some people actually thought that was HiFi audiophile, my guess that they are the QuietComforts.
my Friend's Skateboarder friend owns a pair of Klipsch Image One's
I think i have seen a Kipsch Mode M40 one time.
 
 
theres this Senior or Junior that walks by migrating to lunch wearing i think a V-Moda Crossfade, may or may not be a M80.
 
I also didnt forget the usual sight of Skullcandy hp's and earphones around school. in particular its SC Skullcrushers, SC Hesh's
 
suprising yes, im the only one in school that walks around with Koss Portapros.

Omg your not the only one with PPs<3

I recently got back from a 2-week program at USC (University of Southern California).
While I was there, I tried to record as many headphone sightings as I could. Here goes:
 
At the airport (departure):
1 white ATH-M50
1 unidentified
 
On the plane:
1 Bose QuietComfort 15
1 Skullcandy Hesh
1 black ATH-M50 (not including mine)
 
On-campus:
1 Beats Mixr
2 Beats Pro
4 Beats Studio (black/white)
4 Beats Solo
5+ Apple Earbuds
1 Bose IE2
1 Skullcandy buds
1 red Pioneer HDJ500
1 Sony noise-cancelling(?)
2+ unidentified portables
2 unidentified IEMs
 
At the airport (return):
1 Beats solo
 
I might have missed a few, but take it as a sample population.
