Thanks, I thought I was the only one that thought those looked rather..."unattractive"
Reminds me a girl I met once - gorgeous, but with extremely oversized nipples.

Was it a dealbreaker?

There is probably another sets of natural wood colour left may be another six I am not sure but

it will be somewhat expensive.  This is the picture that I got from Wiktor

i'm almost afraid to ask, given the obscene prices Wiktor asks for orphs & their amps, but i will anyway. how much does he want for these stands?

My custom matte ES10s. Those and the new white pearl M-80 by V-MODA. They are just stunning in person, and I am not usually a fan of white. Maybe I'll post some photos up soon although photos just don't do them justice.

I'm going to say the AKG 240 or AKG 271. They are just beautiful. I especially like the 271.

 

Superlux does a good job at using their design too, but cheaper materials of course.

Yeah, AKG has the looks department nailed.

Hands down edition 10s are the best looking with stax 009 coming in a close second

Here's my vote:

The first is of a custom, the rest are of my version #0692. The most beautiful wood, highest quality leather pads, as well as the best cable and plug I have seen. Couple this with top notch SQ and unique sound signature and you have an all-time classic.

Loving the minimalist (Pioneeer SE-L40 inspired) look of this newcomer:

Reminds me of a classier version of some old radio headsets I have. I like the look. Who makes it?

I prefer metal (shiny or not) over wood.  When it comes to just the looks, there are a few I could only "look."

 

Ferrari T350

 

Eskuche 33x

 

The supposedly rare and incomplete Final Audio Muramasa VIII

 

California Headphones like this Silverado

 

And the rest were already mentioned.

 

Unfortunately I don't own any of these 'cause I'm still saving up for another "for the sound" headphone... unless I read good reviews of the Silverado here on Headfi, then I might consider that.

The Philips L1

 

 

And the X1

 

 

as well as the AKG K550

I would also pick the W3000s. The lacquer is stunning; the cups look like black mirrors in low light, but put them under a bright light and the beautifully rich wood grain is revealed. It's an exquisite work of art in my opinion.
