    Sony MDR-Q22LP
    Sony MDR-Q55LP [​IMG]
    Big cheap Coby closed somethings (from the campus bookstore)
    Cheap Coby buds (from the campus bookstore)
    Cheap Koss street-style (not KSC55)
    And, of course, non-descript white earbuds going into a pocket...99.999% chance it's Apple.

    Maybe I'll have to get some KSC75, and just give them to people [​IMG].

    Most of the folks I see in NYC are wearing the original white buds with their iPODs. I opted for a pair of grey Shure E3's for a better sound and so I wouldn't look like everyone else.

    Best cans in my school are a beat up pair of AKG's one of my friends uses. I'm not sure of the model.

    Second best goes to....that kid wearing Sony MDR-V300's (I believe, I looked at the model name today, but my memory's terrible.) Most kids still have the iPod headphones, or cheap colby wraparounds.

    I see the Sony MDR-V300's all the time, terrible headphones though i sold mine they were so fatiguing to my ears and had no mids what so ever, the bass was muddy, the only thing was decent were the highs.

    Mostly
    iPod stock earphone
    Some other stock....

    While I see a person once wearing a e3c, a HD457 (It seemed to be that). Never seen people with headphone bigger then the HD457 (so far).

    PS: Seen some clip-ons, but I don't care about them much.

    I remember when I had my V300s. I thought I had the best phones at my school (well, actually I did [​IMG]), as everyone else had either iPod buds, V150s or cheap low end Streetstyles (G52s and below). I still think they're one of the sexiest phones I've ever owned.

    Oh yeah, I don't know if this has been posted before but.. there's a commercial (Yoplait yogurt) where it shows kid's fighting matrix style in a living room for the yogurt or something. One of the kids is wearing some silver Sennheisers (either HD457s or HD497s). I was pretty amazed seeing a 12 year old on TV have better phones than me (if they were 497s [​IMG]) I've also seen once, at the mall, some guy leaning against the wall sporting either the 457s or 497s, I had my V300s at the time and hid them in shame. [​IMG]

    Are the HD 497's pretty good. I was looking for something I could wear at home and so that I wont disturb my family when im listening downstairs and not have to take a while to remove like the e2c's if they are trying to talk to me.

    Haha yeah, first time i saw that i was amazed. too bad they had to scratch off the big Sennheiser logo [​IMG]

    Im in Vancouver...and there arent that many on my daily 2-3 hour bus rides [​IMG]

    Theres mostly stock earbuds..ipod earbuds...lots of Sony DJ style and streetstyle. Best i saw was a D66Eggo [​IMG]

    Then theres the guy with sony ex71sl...wait..thats me! (yeah i know they arent THAT great, but they are in comparison with everything else everyone else has [​IMG] )

    The silver v300s were ridiculously sexy-- until everyone had them. Now, they're just the slut of headphones (at least up here in Calgary).

    NBA on ABC - Al Michaels & Hubie Brown - HD25-1 w/ mic
    WWE smackdown - broadcaster/announcers wearing same HD25-1s with mic
    Extreme Home Makeover behind the scenes - camera and microphone guys were wearing V6's

    ---
    Oh and I saw some guy walking downtown in the financial district with some HD595s on. It looked a little ridiculous since he was in his suit and all, but he made up for it by being like 6'8" or something.

    Also saw a police officer wearing the purple Koss Plugs for some reason. He was directing some traffic, maybe he was using them to slightly dampen the loud sounds.

    A couple of people at my school have Grade SR 60's, but that's the only good ones I've seen (besides mine, of course. [​IMG] )
