Went to a Junior Boys concert last Tuesday and I'm pretty sure the drummer was wearing a beyerdynamic DT860. Also, Dave Gahan and Martin Gore from Depeche Mode were wearing either SR60s or SR80s in a Pitchfork.tv clip from some time ago, where they played Come Back.

On the streets, though, it's mostly iBuds and really crappy buds people get with their Samsung or Nokia phones. Sometimes I do see a dude wearing a not too big AKG in public, though. And once I saw a guy with something that looked like a recabled HD2XX-series Sennheiser. I'm always wearing my SE210 in public, but I might just take out my A900Ti sometime for sheer fun.

EDIT: Cool thread, by the way, Never noticed it before. This will have me busy for the coming time. Should be fun, trying to spot good headphones.

Haha yeah, I feel that way too. To me it's the opposite of the K701. IMO they look very classy on their stand but when I see them on someones head, they look extremely out of place

When I saw a pair of portapros on a fairly attractive girl, her coolness factor just went up by 10

I'm tempted to get a pair now, just because they are quite affordable haha.

Well, whilst travelling in the underground i have seen some people wearing skullcandy, apple ibuds, sennheiser hd280...

But the funniest ones are the ones who wear the ibuds the other way around. Left bud on right ear and vice versa

I see people doing that all the time. Don't understand why, though. It says L and R quite clearly on the buds.

Saw someone walking the mall with a pair of Audeo. Then one after another came people wearing some suspicious ugly looking white thing....
