I don't really get the fascination for the VK-1s. Woo, metal and leather, never seen that design before. I have my own rant about the VK-1s that I won't go into, but I don't really see why everyone likes the look so much. The first thing that comes to mind with them is "too understated." Like a Ferrari trying too hard to downplay its looks.

+1. I totally agree. There are way too many headphones out there that incorporate metal and leather. I don't even need to mention any of them, since at least 80% of you know of at least three.

 

I also think that they do look very understated, although I like the slim profile. If they had those in black leather, they'd be great portables. But do they sound any good?

 

OMG THEY COME IN BLACK. I WANT THESE NOW. :D

I don't know what those headphones that Navii posted are, but they look better than the VK-1s and still retain much of the same look.

$115 for something with those features? They probably wouldn't sound any good. For some reason, though, I just love the absurdity of that design. <3

And to think, DeviantArt users actually support this.

 

Oh wait...it's DeviantArt. No wonder it exists. As for the ear-speakers (wait, doesn't Stax use this term for their headphones?), I do remember some Beats-look ripoff cans with earcups that could flip around for speakers. I don't remember what it's called, though.

'Understated' is exactly the appeal in the Valkyrie headphone. Some people don't like brash, shout and yell "look at me" kind of styling... G-shock watches are an example of brash and gaudy looking watch, which is fine but you won't call them "classy" or "elegant". Panerai watches on the other hand is understated and way simpler but is definitely one classy and 'timeless' looking watch biggrin.gif

Some just don't see the beauty in minimalism & simplicity in design, and that's fine I suppose - different strokes for different folks... smily_headphones1.gif

It's just that the VK-1 looks so understated that it looks bland. There's a difference between "understated" and "boring." I can see why someone would find it pretty, but it hardly looks like a luxury item like a lot of people find. I've seen some really nice wristwatches and fashion accessories, but those just look like a failed attempt. Which is still better than the Beoplay H6, which just looks flat-out ugly as sin.
