But they are..UGLY! I rank them up there with the TakeT H2 in terms of gross(multi-meaning word) aesthetics.

I'm going to pull up Photoshop and paint the HD800 to look even better!

Yet, i cannot stop but wonder if it affects SQ in any way.

 

I see that you are back to railgun.

 

How would a paint job affect sound quality? :blink:

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Personally, I think the Abyss and TakeT look amazing!

   Getting spray paint on the driver could affect its performance. But that won't happen with ColorWare lol. Also, changing any acoustic material from rough to glossy will affect its acoustic characteristics.

   Yuck. You crazy, Alchemist? The TakeT looks like it was made in someone's basement out of...I don't even know. My eyes refuse to behold it. It's more like holding in vomit. I'm exaggerating, but you get it.

Changing the outer layer of a material changes the most important aspect of it, it's dampening properties. This can result in a very different signature.

I'll need to see conclusive proof before taking this claim seriously. We're talking about the outside of a headphone, not the inside. Especially with just a different color paint, this claim seems ridiculous to me.

The material on the inside and outside of the cups resonates at different frequencies. 

 

I cannot demonstrate if this affects what one hears, but it can be demonstrated with very good microphones, probably the differences are minor.

 

Going from glossy to mate affects the surface tension of a material, this affects damening, and as we are discussing an open headphone, it will change the sound, but i do not know if for the better or for worse, neither i know if a human is able to tell the differences.

 

YKYAAW you ask yourself such things:D

I think that the HD800 looks like mindblowingly awesome alien technology! It literally looks like flying saucers on your head. Speaking of HD800..

Sennheiser has joined with Beats to finally make a headphone that looks good, because nothing says good looks like low-quality, glossy, neon-colored plastic.
