At first I was disappointed myself. However, giving them about a month of listening really made me appreciate them for what they are. They are not the best sounding headphones out there, but they are very good sounding and isolating for being so portable. Plus, they are very responsive to EQ:ing. Maybe more so than my other headphones.
Anyway, give them a couple of weeks and see if you don't come to appreciate them more.
Unless you want to return them, of course.
Edit: after looking at those pictures on your website, yes, that is in fact how they look. You've chosen a professional set of headphones though. It's not the Beats by Dre shiny plastic bling you're going to get, but a sturdy, "ugly" (IMO good looking, I love industrial design) set of headphones for another purpose: delivering good enough sound for professionals out in the field while being isolating.
