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..
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 would also think you're crazy if you just suddenly started talking about headphones
Yay I saw somebody wearing the DJ AT can in the streets.
Coming back from a concert once I saw a guy with a pair of UM1s. I know they were UM1s & not UM2s because after he saw my customs he almost wet his pants & started talking to me for the next 20 minutes. He asked me who I worked for which I thought was a strange question at first but then realised he thought I was in the music business. He himself was a sound engineer & he had actually been working with the artist I had just seen (Sia) a few days before for a British TV show (later with jools holland).
That's the extent of my sightings really. Apart from a kid I see in the gym using a pair of denon 1001s. They look silly in there too but I never tell him
I saw a guy in Melbourne using HD 25-1s and stopped him in the supermarket and asked him about them. I'd never seen any 'phones over a value of $50 and at the time was considering purchasing them so it was great to talk to someone about them!
I live in Brooklyn, and during my daily train rides to and from my school, I see dozens of apple headphones, dozens of those cheap Sony earphones that come in all different colors, one or two Beats by Dre, a few pairs of Sony noise cancelling headphones, one Koss UR40 and a few other no name brand headphones. As for me... I don't even have a MP3 player (yet) so I just sit on the subway wishing I could have my ATH-A700s on all the time.
Edit: The Bose... how the hell did I ever manage to forget about those overrated pieces of s***? Every time I see one I think: "Damn.. that cord looks flimsy."
Edit 2: Also, skullcandy. I can't count the number of times I've gotten into a conversation about headphones and the person I'm talking with claims that skullcandy is good.
