Still rollerskating around in your short-shorts with tunes blaring on the headphones that came with your original Walkman? Tsk tsk… Everyone knows that’s a look that won’t be hip again for at least another 5 years.

    Erfon, my YouTube username is andymcclung.

    Where I live (off the beaten path KY) I have a funny wrap with the local country folk since I seem to be the only person with internet and any tech knowledge. I need these headphones to listen to audio books and music while mowing many acres on the tractor. I will be spending a lot of time on it this summer and could use them greatly. I also mow in surf shorts, sandals and a straw hat which is different than jeans and cowboy boots like everyone else. I might as well add orange headphones to match, right?

    I would get orange to match the orange tractor. Ha.

    Erfon, hey.

    You must have seen me in the park this past weekend while I was walking Sophie. Embarrassingly enough, I still use the “came with” set of head phones that came with my iPhone. Aren’t you so nice to think of passing along these give away head phones along to your subscribers rather than keeping them for yourself or giving them to your buds. That’s just plain awesome. Who does that these days?

    Your podcast was refreshing. You are bubbly, upbeat and you smile and you seem very friendly. Not like a nerdy, stone faced mono toned podcaster. Characteristics you portray you don’t often see in other podcasts these days. Keep up the “original” you look. You have a new big fan in me.

    Good luck in everything,

    These UrbanEars Plattan headphones would really come in handy for me. I have been using one pair of headphones between my Mac and my iPod Touch. And, if I win these, I won’t have to worry about where my one pair of headphones are.

    Plus, using the UrbanEars Plattan headphones in public would make me look cool, and I will tell everyone that I won them at the best Apple news site ever – Cult Of Mac!

    Dude if you’re going to give away headphones then at least give away some good headphones. UrbanEars rate up there alongside, Beats, FannyWang, and SkullCandy as complete overpriced crap.

    These headphones are awesome! i just made a youtube channel, and was surfing around the web when i saw this post! What a coincidence that my account name is elephantheadphones and my youtube profile picture is of headphones! My name is elephantheadphones because people say the headphones on the t-shirt look like an elephant in some way. Anyway, I think these are some awesome headphones and that this was such a coincidence! I want them…

    Has anybody noticed that on American Idol everybody sporting “beats”:by Dr. Dre, headphones & microphones (hats, t-shirts, etc…)? Now I’m a huge Dr. Dre fan (The Chronic is arguably the best Rap Album made to date), but I can’t afford to buy Dr. Dre products. Hook-me up with the headphone, I’ll let you plug-in, and vibe off of Dre with me. “Swing down, sweet chariot stop and, let me ride, hell yeah…”

    A couple of friends are out in the woods hunting when one of them suddenly falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing,
    The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls 911. He gasps to the operator: “My friend is dead! What can I do?”
    The operator, in a calm voice, says: “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.”
    There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy’s voice comes back on the line. He says: “Okay, now what?”

    Hope that made you laugh! Would love a pair of headphones!


  88. GoodGameGet says:

    I gave away my Cult of Mac book to a high school English & Drama teacher that I had helped switch to a Mac.

    Not too funny, but I guess what made it kind of funny was that it was my ONLY copy and I didn’t have any money to buy another copy for her, so I just gave her that one. She just thought it was a new gift.

    Either way, I hope it’s sitting on a table next to her Mac down in Florida somewhere! I loved that book, and the whole scene just feels so different now when compared to what Leander captured.

    I’ve always wanted a pair of high quality headphones, especially since I’ve never really been able to find any ear buds that don’t hurt my ears.

    Hey there CoM!

    I was talking to my iPhone the other day and she told me that something was missing from our lives. Something awesome. Something…hipster. I couldn’t agree more. So I told Barbara that if she wouldn’t drop a call or lose a 3G signal for three days straight, I would get her a pair of totally awesome Plattan Headphones.Well, she did it. I can’t afford them right now though as college life is unkind to my wallet. I don’t want to let her down. Please help us out. She’ll be thrilled!
