The BEST-LOOKING Headphones - Page 40

post #586 of 1122

I stand corrected @ the Shure SRH-940 then :(

It LOOKS well built IMO from what I've seen of it. I was unaware of the cracking issue.

I never seen the hd800 before, but I hope it doesn't feel the same way as the hd700 because I was shock at the hd700. It felt really cheap for a $1000 headphone, in picture it looks great, but in person it's just okay.

Say what you like, but the Beats Pro is a pretty good looking headphone. Too bad basically everything else about it sucks.

Lose that comical logo and it'd look decent, best though? I'd have to disagree.

The HD700 is made out of plastic so it really underwhelms in person, but the hd800 don't. They are very light in person, but they are all aluminum and feel great.

HD800 is actually mostly plastic.

Um... the HD800 is plastic too. The top of the headband is pretty much the only metal part of the headphones save for the meshes. 

 

However, just because something is plastic-tasitc doesn't mean it's automatically bad. The HD800 felt incredibly solid and well put-together when I tried it out at a meet. 

 

Though, the silver paint was quite disappointing. You'd think Sennheiser would give a $1500 headphone a proper finish, or at least one that didn't scratch off at the mere contact of a fingernail...

The HD700 to me didn't feel solid, but then again I can see them they put more into the HD800 to give it more of a solid feel.

Bear in mind that HD700 is still a grand a pop, no matter how one put it, it sure doesn't feel like one. However, it's very very comfortable to wear.

I agree on that part, almost feel like a toy.

Is it as bad or worse than the M50's build? Most people claim its a tank but I for one think the M50 feels way too loose and rickety.

M50 plastic feels thicker so its seem sturdier. I say worst for the HD700.
