Anyone else get this from ipod users with the crappy white ipod headphones? I wear e2c's and people always ask me why my headphones are so weird. I dont really respond to them and i laugh at them quietly for not knowing a decent pair of headphones.

I would just drool on myself a little and say, "...it's because I'm a geek, what's your excuse?".

I wouls say something along the lines of "for isolation" and "because they sound a lot better than the crap you're wearing".

Imo white cords are weird. With your e2cs on, you shouldn't even be able to hear them asking you these questions

I haven't got that question yet while using my E2c's, but I have gotten the dirty looks while wearing my Graddo's in a public place. Hmmm must've been the Ted Nugent that was leaking out of the back of those cans!

nah it is weird in a slightly radical way for me. the main reason i didnt like the e2c. its takes too long to put on and off.
i looks like hearing aids.

"why are your earphones so weird"

Then answer by askinging them
"Why are your earphones so crappy"

I wear headphones on the train and I don't get any stares. (Senn HD-201)I got "hey those are kinda cute" from a couple of classmates.
I can't wait to get my hands on one of the Grado's that would be shock to some of my friends,(Like "ohh it's so retro" but the train. I onno yet, I've never seen anyone who uses the transit system w/those.

punch them in the mouth until they fall over.

dance around shouting "boogah boogah boogah!" and cupping your genitals in your left hand. do this 6 times.

then eat some celery (in a hurry) and run away flapping your arms, glancing nervously from side to side every 13 seconds.

that should do the trick.

EDIT: In the event that you don't have celery on yourself at the time, shame on you. that's unnacceptable and can be remedied only by suicide.
