When I asked the question I was thinking more along the lines of both superb build and desirability, without superflous over-design.... so I guess the question is "What is the Swiss watch of audiophile headphones?"
Which currently available Cans have the best build quality? I.E. which are the least flimsy, most solidly constructed, most feel like if you dropped them they wouldn't break, do not creak or rattle in any way when in use?

Sorry double post, browser problems.
For a few years I had Sennheiser HD650s powered by an Earmax - nice, then changed the Earmax to a Lehman BC Linear, even nicer IMO. But I always had a nagging feeling the Sennheisers were a bit distant sounding and losing detail, so I also tried AKG 701s..... more detail but ultimately for reasons I can't really explain I found them less musically involving than the HD 650. I'd also briefly had a pair of Grado RS-1, but detested them for lack of comfort, and...
