    This is not really a headphone sighting as such, but I guess it just fits here.

    I was in an Audiologist in northern Sydney today for a hearing test (Advanced Audiology) and asked about ear impressions. Turns out that a while ago a guy came in with very specific instructions as to how he wanted ear molds done, to have a custom mold for his headphones. The Audiologist said he had this 'complicated system' which looked like a 'mobile phone gone wrong.' Sounds very much like a Head-Fier, was it anyone here? :p

    Wasnt me, but I've sighted plenty of closed Sennheisers in Sydney.

    Mostly low-end stuff, but occasionally something stands out. A businessman suited up, walking round town with some HD25's caught my eye near Pitt St mall, Uni student on the train listening to some HD-590's and a guy on a bus in eastern sydney with HD-280's and his portable private CD collection in his bag.

    Dont know why you would choose HD280's if youre a bus commuter though....

    I wonder if he stole it

    edit:
    also saw a student with a custom Ultimate Ear... not sure which line it is though

    if i were homeless, i would try to aquire some good headphones and a good source some how too... you got to at least have good music everywhere you go, no?

    I've seen one person wearing Grado SR-60s to class, one with KSC-75s, and one person wearing Grado 325's when buying something from the store. I talked to the guy wearing the 325's, but he didn't seem to understand the greatness resting on his ears [​IMG]

    The rest are all garbage iBuds or assorted Sony phones...and my roommate has Skullcandy cans that leak like crazy (MUCH worse than my Grados, which is saying something).

    Man I never see anyone with any good iem's or headphones...I think I have to move to a different location..lol..
    I see some people wearing headphones of the same style as the Koss KSC75's, and when I tell them about the KCS75's and how good there are for the money they look at me like I'm crazy..[​IMG]
    Most of the people I see at the gym have ipods and they use the Sony iems..or just the stock ibuds..
    There is this one guy that wears a fanny pack with some portable CD player and some gigantic cheap Sony cans while he's on the treadmill..

    I saw a dude wearing A900's at Yonge/Bloor subway station a couple days ago. I was quite pleasantly surprised.
