I like these Manufaktur DT990s in black and chrome.




Too bad their treble is so painful...

This design simply invites the eye to follow its contours and explore its form.


If Mother Nature ever decides to made a headphone, it would look like this.

Why not go ALL THE WAY?

I think AKG consistently puts out good looking headphones. Even the cheapo K 44s look pretty good. The black/gold K 240s are pure class in a world of generic chrome gadgets. The K701s are very old-school and mechanical looking, like something you would see one your parent's top shelf as a kid and go "Ooo" and instantly start climbing to grab it and see what it does. It looks professional and hi-fi, like a mixerboard with a zillion knobs. Classy and powerful at the same time.


Beats are the ugliest to me. I hate "sleek" technology. I want to see the mechanics. I want Lamborghini Countach/Trans Am headphones with random stuff sticking out everywhere, not PT Cruiser headphones (Beats). I want them to look like something I would be wearing in an '80s science fiction movie with my stillsuit. AKG and a couple other brands have got that nailed.


Beats on the other hand take the "Apple" approach to technology aesthetics; just wrap everything in smooth, barren plastic so it doesn't clash with your shoes. It's like having a room in your house with a single profound beanbag laying in the middle and nothing else. God, I hate minimalism.


I guess it's the difference between people who like Rembrandt (depth, light, shadow, ultra-immersion) and people who like Rothko (giant square).
