Art students are very impressionable and easily wow'd.
 
Example:
"Just look at those brush strokes!"  
"I love the way he captured the mood!"
 
Now just add the sentence "It's the perfect balance of sound and design - it said so on the box!"

Don't get your hopes up, they were only 6th graders. :p

Just a middle school art class, but they are easily wow'd with the headphones. 
 
The part where they actually act like fools is that when I tell them about a headphone they might like they're too stubborn to listen to any alternative other than the beats and still get the beats.
 
About 10 at my school have beats, 6 people with stock buds, and 1 person wearing skullcandys.

Ah - well then, I'm not so worried. I cannot tell you the last time I worried about the opinions of 6th graders - probably, when I was in 6th grade. 
 
If these were college art students it might be more worrisome. But even then - I tend to worry about my own decisions, more than other peoples.

 I wasn't trying to ruin your day or sumthing.. 

I did see lots of unidentifiable (probably generic) headphones this last month. Mostly Pioneer and Philips. And some phone company called My|Phone suddenly came up with an iPod Classic-looking phone that sported some cool full-sized headphones. Haven't tried them though.
