The most beautiful headphones you know of? - Page 30

post #436 of 572

Yeah but I'm also afraid of spending $900 for somebody to screw with my favorite pair of headphones.  I might possibly, perhaps think about letting somebody mod my M50s, but I love them so much it would be difficult.

Yes, but the not knowing will always haunt you. Better to just give in to your curiosity. evil_smiley.gif

Elongated anything looks really awkward... like tubes... Wearing big wooden cups makes anyone look like a monkey. They're in denial if they think the big wooden cups look good on them.

 

However, the ESW10JPN is probably the classiest headphone you'll ever find.

I actually prefer the ES7 to the ESW10.

 

Though I find D5000's and D7000's to look nicer then most other headphones.

I think my ATH woodies and my sold Denon D7000 look like pieces of art, but wearing them...  yup. I look like a monkey. Anyone that I have ever let try my headphones, look like a monkey.

 

Headphones like AKG K701 or Sennheiser HD800, look like an alien.

 

Monkeys and aliens...

Yeah I'll agree with that on head they are ridiculously huge, but they are impressive and the FEEL impressive. Even the lower end of Denon's are really well built. It's pretty obvious they didn't want to skimp on constuction.

 

If it were me though, I'd get an LA2000 and have them make the cups like R10's.

I'm not sure there's any headphone I think looks good worn. And I've seen quite a few of them on people's domes. That said, there are quite a few I like sitting by themselves. The Denon and AT ones are gorgeous, as are most wooden and metal Grados. A lot of the headphones in this thread caught my fancy, though I agree with the notion that the elongated bits are a turnoff for me. I value simplicity over bling, so things like the HE-5 just speak to me more than some of the crazy ones with carbon fiber bits and sixteen different swivel joints.

 

And the HD800, IMO, is one of the ugliest flagships ever.

I'm not a big fan of orthos, but these look snazzy.

Qualia 010
post #445 of 572

Can't see why the Qualia gets so much attention, those earpads look hideously plasticy and uncomfortable (not that comfort has anything to do with it)

post #446 of 572


I'm with ya , I'm more of a ED10 kindof guy, nice simple brown and metal.
