    Dayamn, Son! Did you find out if he was a headfier?! You gotta be in deep to have a pair of those out west. Brave man, taking a pair of cans like that into public [​IMG].

    Did I? Where did I say something so misleading? It needs correcting!!!!

    I saw a guy at my gym that used Shure e5s. He recently came up to me and asked about my headphones. I just said, these old things ?? He had never heard of UE before. He proceed to explain that he had ety's ER4-P before (couple hunred dollars) and now upgraded to Shure e5s (which we well over $300). Once he started to explain how they have dual drivers, I explained that I had the e5s before. He then looked again at the UE10s and asked how much were they?

    As some point he figured out that I knew my stuff and who was schooling who. Cool thing was I didn't really have to say a thing about it.

    Ah, It was in the head to head against the Senn .. what was it... PX-10 (?) on your blog. You said the Senns won on SQ, etc.. but neither were really bad choices.... Neither are 'real' headphones. But they ain't iBuds.

    I quote from my review:

    "The Sony sounds like a slightly inferior version of the iPod earbuds… certainly non-fatiguing and not unlistenable by any means, but words like detail and clarity don’t exactly roll off the tongue when the J20’s are on the ear."

    Ah :p.

    We'll consider that corrected, shall we? [​IMG]


    When I read your post, I just hoped I hadn't had some sort of deranged moment and posted that they were decent somewhere. In isolation, they're not unlistenable and after a while you start saying "yeah... kinda smooth". But the moment you compare with anything else half-decent, it's limitations become all too clear.

    I didn't remember reading the 'slightly inferior' part when I posted. Only that you had bothered to review them. [​IMG] I probably skipped down to the bottom to see who won, and then went back on with what I was doing (looking for reviews of mp3 players at the time)

    And I really do see a lot of these things on folks' heads out here.

    Yeah. So do I. Which is why I run the comparison. Not sure why they should be as popular as they seem to be... I guess it's a combination of the earhook arrangement, style and price.

    Well, I didn't ask him. Sort of worried that if he is a head-fi'er and he realizes who I am... well, I've never had much nice to say about the A900. [​IMG]

    If I were him I would be worried about them slipping off my head. [​IMG]

    ferreal! I accidentally step on the cord about once a week walking around my room. Usually manage to catch 'em though. At least the AD900 has fewer moving parts to break [​IMG].

    The only thing I see is iBuds. The funniest is this guy I work with who uses a little flash 512 sony player with the iPod buds. I asked him where he got them and he said he bought them off of his buddy for $10...[​IMG]

    Well two days later I was on break listening to my iPod and he asked me why I didn't have the headphones that came with them and I told him that I replaced them the day I got my iPod because I didn't like the way they fit [​IMG] (I didn't want to get into it with him about them being terrible since he went on about liking them) I showed him my E3's and he looked at them a little confused and I thought he would ask me what the deal with the foam was but he said..."now they don't match your iPod" then laughed when I told him what i spent on them...[​IMG] ah well...

    I can't believe you guys see so many good cans on campus. Here the BEST set of cans I've seen yet were worn by a cute girl today, which inspired me to post.. they were Koss UR21Cs, $17.26 at Walmart. Everybody else has the white iPod buds or other cheap buds. I wear my SR-80s to class and people stare at me like I'm from another planet. I know exactly what they're thinking, too, "that guy doesn't even have enough money for earbuds so he stole his grandma's headphones". Oh well, ignorance is bliss I suppose. I go to MSU Mankato, a party school, so I don't really expect anyone to be enlightened :I

    I saw a guy getting on the R train at Canal St wearing Audio Technica. I couldn't make out the model, but I did notice the word Vintage on the, what I believe was wood, housing. Those things were huge. That was a first.

    Saw a guy waiting at a bus station by the dollar store with a pair of Eggos on. I was tempted to tap his shoulder and ask if he knew about head-fi since eggos aren't exactly common. I also saw some Beyer 250s or Sony V6s. Couldn't exactly tell. Other than that it's all Coby and iBuds.
