Clearly, you're just jealous of them.

Anywho, take a look at these beauties.jh_audio_jh11_pro_custom_in-ear_monitor.jpg

Philips Fidelio L1. The Oppo PM-1 is gorgeous, too. Sony MDR-1R, as well, but in typical Sony fashion, it got discontinued for an inferior model.

Can't believe I haven't seen the LCD-XC in here. The gloss and depth of the wood grain is hard to capture in photos but gorgeous in person. Mixed with the leather and metal it all works together to make a beautiful headphone. Matches the sound quality IMO.

meh, all of these look like they're trying too hard imo, they're attempting to be super classy but overshoot it by a couple kilometers end up just looking "okay"

 

at least its not like bowers & wilkins gear, which pushes itself so far beyond the goal that it collapses to the ground, spewing chunks and clutching its chest as it writhes in a pool of it's own vomit

 

also whoever said it: the K812 is absolutely stunning

 

 

the subtle sapphire hue of the driver capsule showing through the mesh is an optical orgasm

They do look like a tricked-out HD600/650, which is really cool.

Still, H6 all the way!

Current phones I own I happen to like the look of quite a bit, so I guess I do buy on looks quite a bit. Thankfully I really like their sound too.

The Orpheus is ridiculously pretty, it's subtle and classy in all the right ways.  WORTH IT!

I like the look of those headphones because they sort of evoke a vintage look to me. I'd probably appreciate the hue underneath the grill more if other parts of the headphone were colored blue - maybe a subtle steel blue or something similar. Otherwise, viewed at the "wrong" angle, it looks like a cheap LED fan you'd find in a low-end gaming PC.

 

Funny thing about the "trying too hard" comment: A lot of people like the minimalist detail of the Aedle VK-1. I think they look nice, but not stunningly beautiful.

the VK-1's headband is way too thin and the whole thing screams "uber cheapie" to me, and the sound is not anywhere near its ludicrous pricetag

 

and vintage is my specialty, these don't look vintage, they look like a modern headphone trying to impersonate vintage

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

 

these are true vintage beauties, some more than others of course
