This May a 24-year-old New Yorker decided to ask people on the streets what music they were listening to at that specific moment and made a video of it. Eventually, this intriguing idea spread all over the world and now all major cities have a Ty Cullen inspired video consisting of people sharing their listening habits right in the middle of it.

The best of these videos also serve as a small tour of the respective city, besides revealing a general musical vibe. And subjective as all these clips might be, one must admit it’s nevertheless a tiny voyeuristic pleasure to peep in people’s headphones asking them what they’re getting connected to as they walk past you.

But there’s one thing that bothers me, though. Why is it that most of these people have no idea what they’re listening to until they check their iPods?
