Yay for today! I actually saw a big variety unlike the usual sub $20, iBuds and Skullcandies!

Visited my old IT teacher for something and find out he used Koss SparkPlugs, saw a guy walking down a busy road with white PX100's (they look ugly compared to the black ones IMO, Black PX100's = look much nicer and less tacky). Also saw a high-school peep with some Technics headphones.

Plenty of the usual iBuds and sub $20's though.

She reminds me of Germania's avatar.



Perfect opportunity to 'talk headphones' (if you catch my drift) and you didn't take it! bah!

I saw someone at uni with some truely hideous cans, they were closed and he was listening so loud I could hear the noise from a few metres away o_O
I just thought: "Wow, that idiot's going to be pretty deaf pretty soon..."
They turned out to be the Skullcandy iCon / Recruit.

Oh don't worry about him, his cans won't last him long enough for his ears to die off.

Guy sat across from me on the bus this morning sporting ATH-M50. I was amazed, I kept looking till I finally caught a glimpse of the band to prove they were ATH-M50. I was going to say something.. then realized how creepy that may end up.

Got my tracking number for my D2000's today. woot. Can't wait to look redunculous on the train with massive headphones. ...Already got funny looks with old 1001's.

It gets worse.. She doesn't carry them around with her because "they are too big". They don't fit in her little Coach 'Wrist-let'

I saw a pair of AT M50's while in the Perth Domestic airport a few weeks back. The guy was running them straight from his Laptop, he could of had a hidden amp/dac somewhere. Didnt get a close enough look.

I saw a dude today at my university's student center with a pair or Dr. Dre "Beats". Now these are supposed to be CLOSED, noise canceling headphones. But I could hear them from over 5 feet away!

I heard it coming(and assumed it was someone with ibuds) and I heard it long after he passed.

Id love to wear my HD650s out of the house but I usually resort to my DT770s cause Im worried about annoying other people with headphones as loud outside as inside. So if anyone sees a dude in Reno with DT770s, say hi, thats me. If you see a guy in Reno wearing 650s, congratulate him for getting over it XD

Ohh, I finally get to contribute after looking around for a quarter at the uni.

Saw those panasonic retro's white, ath-sj3, 2 denon d501's, 4 triports, 2 triports (nc edition), 1 Beats, some IEM's that looked like they had been recabled (blue/white spiral wire), 1 full size skull candy on this 1 girl (green and yellow... jesus...), 1 camo fullsized skull candy, a few portable sized skull candies, many sony portable headphones, 1 porta pro (wow look smaller in person), 2-3 guys wearing massive full sized panasonic/bose/whatever headphones, and an uncountable number of ibuds.

Massive report here. I just got my es7's, but they're so flashy I don't really want to wear them outside. I guess ill stick w/ my cx300's until my next IEM upgrade.
