    Does anyone wear over-ear style headphone whilst walking around in public?
    I want to buy a pair of PXC 550s but I think it's kinda weird wearing such big headphones in public.

    You'll look like an idiot. Not to mention being unable to hear what's going on around you.

    To be honest I wouldn't, apart from the fact that it probably would look odd, most of them are not made to be worn when moving so they might fall off...

    i find it obnoxious tbh. A guy in my class always wonders into lectures with massive headphones around his neck and he wears them as a fashion statement

    Nobody cares anymore, not since Beats became a status symbol among 12 year olds. Wear what you want.
