For me right now it's the TH600, in love with it's look at the moment.

I don't like beats, but if you really want something stylish, I would recommend the black beats by dr dre mixr.

Nothing will ever beat the classic elegant look of these headphones. They ooze quality.

Maybe it's just me, but I really just do not like the beats shape and style. Nothing to do with the sound or price, the style just does not appeal to me.

Hmm, is it me, or do the earcups look similar to the Sony MDR-V6?

It's not you, I posted on another thread stating the same thing.. The Sonys look a bit like the DT48 in a way expect they are very plasticky

Never been a fan of the look of wood in general. Nor of intricate design, I thing the HD-800 looks awful, same with the Q010-MDR1.

 

I would say that the overall best looking headphone also happens to be what many consider the best sounding.

Here's why-

 

  • Those milled cups
  • Adjusters don't stick out like on HiFiMan or Audeze
  • That driver piece or driver shield or whatever looks amazing
  • Beautiful black leather band and pads
  • All the connections between parts are well executed

 

I like simple, but not over-smoothed. For example, beats look overly minimalized. There's needless plastic threw over things to make it look more minimal. The headphone isn't simple and minimal, just masquerading as it. There's plenty you could take off and keep all function. On the 009, there's nothing unnecessary to cover things up. Every part I can see serves an imminently obvious purpose. You couldn't take away much material at all without losing some functionality. The 009 looks simple and, though I've never even seen one in person, I can just feel the quality.

Welcome to Head-Fi, sorry about the wallet!
As far as seeing the 009 in person, I will admit, it is one gorgeous piece of machinery. For quality, everything on it feels top notch, except the headband, which feels a little cheap to me.
