Best looking headphones

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone

First post on this forum, I hope I am in the right section.

I am looking for a headset, and I have 1 HUGE requirement: the headset must be the best looking thing on the market. Im not planning and hoping to go over 250$ though, and from my little experience that's only for high-end sound headphones.

The second requirement in importance is the sound quality. 

I couldnt find anything anywhere on the internet.


2 headsets so far caught my eye


Steelseries syberia V2 frost


Razer blackshark


I listen to a lot of kinds of music. I never listen to dubstep, hard rock, jazz, instrumental, and slow music. My favs are progressive house an trance i guess. Im also very deep into gaming, but I am really not an audiophile in it. I can appreciate good sounds of music, dont care about gaming

Might be a little beyond your budget, and I may be a little biased as I own a pair but the Sennheiser Momentums are some of the sexiest headphones I've ever seen. Excellent build and audio quality too, in my opinion.


V-Moda are also considered to be pretty good looking round here too, though I've never really seen the appeal myself.


I'm also a big fan of Audio Technica's ES series, can't speak for the sound quality though unfortunately :)


And welcome to Head-Fi! :)

I think I saw some Sony MDR-1R running at around $210. That's actually a very smart choice. The SQ is smooth, colored and warm. A lil bit lacking in details. These are also "master" of modern music.

Other than that, the UE6000 is a very good pair of headphone for EDM, hip hop/rap, pop and something around that. It's running at $199 with Actice NC which is a nice add. You do not need battery to play your song in passive.

Momentum may be a good choice but never quite like it with classical music/instrumental as the lack of soundstage makes it less enjoyable. It does everything good but master at nothing.

Hope this helps!

I have tried the steelseries, and it is comfortable, but the sound quality isn't that great. I saw the Philips Fidelio L1 recommended somewhere and don't know how it sounds, but it does look nice.

Thanks for all the replies!

The momentum one looks pretty awesome, but Its very expensive and I dont think I need such a good sound. We can say I am a junior audiophile. Dont need extreme sound.

The sony one suggested doesnt really catch my eye, and neither the UE6000. I hate logitech as a headphones brand.

Those philips fidelio on the other hand look pretty good, Im considering them.

Regarding the audio-technica, I found A model, ATH-M50 which looks glorious. Any opinions?


Ive also found this one which looks good too, SONY MDR-V55

Any feedback?

I am very inclined to buy the ATH M50. Do you think that I can use them around, on public transports such as trains, plane etc? I was planning to have them around my neck, when I am gone, and use them for gaming when I am home. I dont need a mic usually.

m50 looks horrible to my eyes, i actually like the look of they Beyerdynamic DT1350, very sleek and very pretty.

I don't know how they sound but the Monster Vektr looks pretty cool. 

Personally I am a huge fan of the B&W P5's look.

Not a big fan of the M50's myself either, but to answer your question yeah it should be fine. They fold flat so they can go around your neck easily enough, I have a mate with a pair and he has them wherever he goes!
