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.
Flips audio?

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.

 

They're actually really nice in person.

Assuming you're talking about the H6, I second that to the milionth power.

In terms of aesthetics, the STAX SR-007MK2 is by far my favorite headphone. So classy!

 

lol, turns out someone else already said "by far my favorite" for it here as well.

Oh, no, the VK-1. The H6 is nice, but for some reason felt flimsy.

 

I've been lusting after a W10VTG for the better part of seven years and I finally got a pair. They look better than they do in the pictures. I'll upload some here tomorrow.

too bad the MK2 isn't a fraction as good as the MK1

 

the MK1 is also prettier IMO

Yep, I want 'em both! I used the same image you did in my wish list thread. I hate the way some of the old SR-007s look, except with that golden champagne and brown color scheme. Here's a good image I found of it.

I would have to say that it is a toss up between the Sennheiser Momentum, and Momentum On-ear. Absolutely love the retro, minimalistic, clean styling of them both. Owning both, I will say that the build quality and materials used are of the highest grade. Nothing cheap about either.

I'm sorry but I just can't stand either of the momentums, especially not the black/red ones (that's been overdone to death). This is not a "retro" styling at all; retro is pure functional simplicity, not hyper flashy shiny curvy B/S like the momentums.

 

The Yamaha YH-1/2 and Audio-Technica ATH-6D have what I'd call a "retro" styling.

To each their own I guess. What you just described, pure functional simplicity, is exactly what both Momentums are. I really don't see hyper flashy shiny curvy when I look at both headphones hanging up in front of me. The MOE are shiny, but NOT hyper shiny. Neither are flashy. Very subtle lines. But like I said, to each their own.

 

As someone who comes from a family of musicians, broadcast professionals, military, and pilots, I have seen/used dozens of professional 'retro' headphones. In my eyes both Momentums fall into 'retro' more so than what you posted. Retro style IMO are these:

+1. I love the look of the Momentums. Very adult-centric design that even teenagers could pull off.

I've seen them in person. They're just as "meh" as the pictures.
