    I don't know if this counts… perhaps in the "pretentiousness" section of status. I own an Apple Watch :lol:

    It makes my life immensely easier! Also allows me to track things on the go i.e. steps, calories, exercise, etc. — really useful! I especially like that most Watch faces sync to your calendar so if I forget where I'm meant to be going I don't have to fumble for my phone. I suppose it's a bit of a gimmick but I find uses!

    Never, the closest I've ever got was considering buying Beats but theyre genuinely terrible headphones.

    I can't fathom the types who spend like 300 quid on celebrity endorsed ****, crazy.

    What do you mean, like, Iphones/ Macs etc?

    If so, no, there are far better things to spend that sort of money on

    Yes but not because its a "status symbol" but because I actually like x. I still want a Seiko Astron watch. It costs £2200 and I won't buy it for another three to four years or so but that's because I still have around three to four years left on my guarantee of my current watch

    I do but I'm quite anal about the time and quite so about being able to pull it up quite easily

    Also I like to be eco. Japanese innovation

    Hmmm..... closest thing to a status symbol is a U87, but they're admired for a reason!

    I like the bass ngl, if you listen primarily to hip hop they're great, but anything else and it sounds a bit unnatural imo

    I preferred the Street by 50, they sounded OK tbh. Still expensive tho
