Everytime i see anyone writing about the "looks" of a HP, i wonder why it matters.
I know a lot of people used to laught at me when i first got my first around-the-ear HPs and used them when on the streets.
Now, after beats, everyone thinks its cool, and many people use AKGs, Senns, etc.
People are full of BS so i dont think it matters that much what they think about my HPS (whenever they are nice or ugly) and i dont plan to be posing as a model with them on (not to mention i have a huge nose so i doubt ill get there).
For me the LCD-2/3 Looks cool (ugly but cool). That sort of retro from space style with a strange mesh format looks like its shouting "look at me, look at me" :D.
However it does bother me that they are heavy, or they clamping force, or that my ears sweat.... comfort issues basicly.
I guess icare about the sound quality and comfort so much that the looks become a pointless part.
