Personally I can't stand the "stuck-up businessman" aesthetic they've got going on, but I do admire their construction.

Not only does it look great, it's comfortable and sounds incredible too.

Yeah... no. Pretty yes, but the fact that they sound way below their price bracket and are very breakable ruins the looks for me.

The Razer Kraken forged edition headphones look amazing especially as they are made of aluminium

the 1840 is an aluminum frame tank, the 940 is the one that breaks...

What!? Have you even listened to them?
They are generally considered to great headphones (despite bass-light)
And they are not breakable at all... they are very sturdy.

My point is they are not $500 good. The AKG K/Q701 blow it out of the water for half the price.

 

Yeah... no they're not, the yoke design is INCREDIBLY fragile, my friend's snapped within a week and he's one of the most gentle people I know when it comes to his gear. Just because something is aircraft grade aluminum doesn't mean it's built well. You still have to use proper design, and the cups are just barely holding onto the headphone with tiny flat pieces of metal. That is not proper design.

 

Good headphones. Pretty headphones. But they're wildly overpriced and that ruins the looks for me.

Interesting, this the first instance I have heard about the 1840 breaking. Usually if something this expensive has that sort of issue a thread is started... The only one I have seen on Head-fi was for the 940 which had a serious issue with the plastic breaking on the band portion of the headphone NEVER the cup. So I would have to disagree that these are fragile, heck I bet I can find instances of the Q701 or even the Sennheiser 6xx series breaking but nobody is claiming those models are poorly designed.

Sound PREFERENCE wise I agree the Q701 sounds better (because I personally like it more) but technically I think the 1840 hangs in there with Sennheiser 6xx series and other similarly priced headphones. I also think the Q701 does as well and I personally LOVE the fact that it is less than 1/2 the cost of the other brands/models.

But what does ANY OF THIS have to do with how good or bad a headphone looks? I love the heck out of my Q701 sonically but I won't say it's the prettiest headphone I have ever owned.
