I would rather be caught with my pants down in public than wearing those. I don't care if they sound like the SR009.

I think anything this guy wears isn't going to show off the headphones very well. I seriously doubt even the P7s would look good on him either (I keed, I keed):

 

 

Not claiming to be a headphone model (far from it), but here they are on my head:

Not that bad looking headphones IMO. BTW, can you tell I'm a Floyd fan?

You sir, MH! You kind of remind me of my dad? @.@

NAD is designed for LMFAO's head xD

The actual materials are important, but design flaws are bad flaws indeed.

You really have a great answer for me.
By the way, which headphone do you think is the best designed?

The H6 and the P7. The M500 creaks too much with me. The momentum's pads are too small, the 1r is breakable, the m100 is also up there.

Stoked you got a pair of the HP50. I was really hoping it would make it into the comparison. I know you enjoy your hobby but I really do appreciate how you keep updating this review...my wallet, on the other hand--that's a completely different story.

Is H6 the HiFiman?
M500 will make noises while listening?

Thanks, H6 is really stylish, and I tried it in the store, also sounds good.

My god. This guy has a really big head

Not when listening, just when moving them and adjusting them. The isolation is only tolerable, and the clamp is so light that its difficult to keep them on your head.

On another note, MH, P7 vs H6: Which has less bass and the lager soundstage?

Anyone here hear the Beyer T51p?

Agreed on your assessments of the M500s...the reason I sold them was their lack of good isolation (something really important for a pair of closed portable headphones IMO).

 

The P7s definitely have more bass, but the H6's have more air and a wider soundstage. 

 

Haven't heard the T51p yet, that said, I'm a bit leery of on-ear headphones and their ability to isolate well or hurt my ears when wearing glasses (the DT1350s were torture devices).

Just to clarify, my joke was this guy kinda looked like the guy below and no pair of headphones would look that great. :p

They are really great headphones. Very natural sounding and I would say more "neutral" than the P7s. Sorry about your wallet, due to this thread, mine's taken a bit of a licking too.
