So you wear your headphones 24 hours a day?

Design/Aesthetics are a huge factor in purchases. Take apple for example.

Are we still talking audiophile headphones or did we change to consumer goods in general?

People seem to forget that Apple was trying to hawk that style for over 20 years before a device that was easily operable came along and made it de rigeur. The function sold the product not the (lack of) style.

 

How about we let Dan get these into production and delivered before we start demanding alterations. After all, it's not like they are abysmally, ugly is it?

We weren't demanding him change the headphones. We were just saying what kind of aesthetics would fit the Mad Dogs. This started with Dan posting an image of the black arms, which is quite different from the stock, brass color. If aesthetics is such a problem, then why is Dan also changing things up visually? It's a topic of discussion, not a cry for changes. I like the stealth MD and the AD just the way they look. Just wondering how they'd look in carbon fiber finish.

Ha...Abyssmally ugly-looking. You know it's bad when even Tyll says it looks butt-ugly.

Surely not something that looks $5000+

To each is own and leave mine alone...

 

I was very vocal with Dan about "MY" brass bars being powder coated, there were others as well.  Why, because that's what "I" wanted.  He did 1 better and got them anodized.  Dan is the MAN..

Both. I'm saying aesthetics matters to most people in their consumer goods purchases, be it headphones, smartphones etc. And to that end, the black arms are a nice choice for the AD.

5000 Rubles perhaps?

Uniqueness has its own beauty...

Kinda sad when a $250-$300 headphone like the Philips Fidelio X1, outclasses a headphone costing more than 17x as much. It's even built incredibly well.



Aesthetics goes a long way. It gives headphones a PREMIUM look.

Look at the Alpha Dog. It no longer looks like $100 (T50RP). It LOOKS as good as I'm sure it sounds. It's elegance in sound is now matched by it's looks.

I never felt the Mad Dog matched up in looks to it's sound. It was a definite sleeper, which is charming in it's own way.

No, for the headphones that are supposed to have SQ above everything else, I think Dan's done a terrific job regarding their looks. That said, I think a lot of people would buy the ADs even if they had hair all over them :)

I'm not sure what you're arguing here, we both agree that the AD is looking very nice.
