From a designer's point of view, I think that the HD800 is the worst attempt, simply because of the built hype and the extreme pretentiousness of the design team in aiming for uber high tech looking cans, without understanding that the materials at their budgetary disposition were not high tech.

!!!!!!!!!!The HD800 are the most FAKE LOOKING and OVER-DESIGNED headphones ever!!!!!!!!!!!

I should add that I own a pair... though I might sell it ....

But what matters here is whether they're the ugliest or not. This isn't about the design philosophy..

Actually the squarish types aren't bad they're on a more VERY old school feel. Lol! reminds me of my first beer Cap. =)

Now, why hasn't anyone posted any gaming head sets. I dont, believe having a Tracktor on my head would actually look COOL. the Orange color doesn't help either.





Psyko 5.1 Gaming Headphones | Geeky Gadgets

For non-gaming. For some reason Ferrari Red doesnt look cool all of the sudden. =p

Yeah, the HD800s could use a little bit more of a sedate design. As it is, they look more like a Power Rangers toy than a serious high-end headphone. Seriously, can't you see the White Ranger wearing those?

Yes, I believe the white ranger would be able to deflect Sonic Balst with those.

But one thing I find. the HD800 size is actually one of the most comfortble cans I tried. Since i have a big melon. I can see my self withstand soic blast and still look abit normal on the side. =)

HD 600. The faux marble(?) is retina tearing.

I have not noticed this until now. There are three people in the Jecklin Float picture. I think that one guy must be covering up even more hideous headphones. Hence the awkard stance.

What about the nokia design contest thriller headphones... Sweet idea, but I could probably never rock these on the street :P
These are also available in some stores.
