Post em here. Whether they are modified as props, or as actual headphones being used.

- Koss Porta Pros- Used as weird headset in Earth: Final Conflict.

- Bang & Olufsen Earphones- Used as a wireless phone in Minority Report, one was used with the cord cut off.

Alicia Keys had Grados (SR-60s?) in her "Fallin'" video last year or so. It's the only time I've seen a decent piece of audio equipment assocaited with a musician on television.

neat, i've been meaning to start a thread on this.. but i like to liven it up a little bit with some screenshots!

first, a not so original one. neo in the matrix wears some crappy panasonic headphones (thanks for melchior for the screenshot):

earlier this year, i was rewatching the early seasons of the sopranos and found this scene quite amusing. the best part is, as anthony jr. walks into the room, you can hear music very lightly in the background.. so any grado fan knows positively what kind of headphones these are (sr60 or sr80):

sorry if those shots are a little dark, i never tweaked them for easier viewing.

Bumping this thread, I think it's better than starting a new one.
 
There is this sort of "American Idol" for kids over here; I just laughed out loud: the musicians are all wearing HD25s, except for the trombonist, he was wearing PortaPros. Poor guy, I guess he got the spares

"Frasier"

Kelsey Grammer often wear a pair of Sony MDR-7506 or V6 while he's "on air" at the radio station. Except he always wears them backwards with cord on his right side.

Some people, my wife for instance, put the cord side to the good ear.
 
The ultimate, or at least funniest, scene in a movie with headphones is in "The Fifth Element."  Zorg's go-fer, is listening in on the President with an A/V-equipped roach.  The President whacks the roach, and the go-fer throws up his hands and screams as the 'phones fly off his head.  Priceless!  I could be tempted to use it as an avatar.
