I remembered that i read this on his blog a long time ago, and the thing i think i remembered mostly was his haircut on the first photo.
After much research (and rediscovered his post on it), i got myself the Koss Portapro. The quality of the sound ratio against the price is so amazing. I tried many of my higher-end Sennheiser headphones i have through the years and this can easily match against them. Wow!
I now goes to work, and walk around the campus with this geeky headset, but hey.. when the quality of the sound is that great, i don't mind (uneducated) folks from staring. Some folks that do know about the quality of this gave nods knowingly.
A new colleague said it looks like something from Transformers! *faint*
