I'm interested in owning headphones that have this look.

Any suggestions? Brands? Model?


Thanks.

I don't know of any headphones that look exactly like that. But how about Grados or the Philips X1?

Hey, I just googled retro styled headphone and these are the very close, only difference is that they are square not round:L

Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro

Phillips Fidelio X1

They seem like steampunk headphones.

Hmm... where can I find headphones that are not real and only come from the cartoon world?

 

The closest thing you'll find is WWII headsets...

@seanfisher5 How do they size up in the sound department?

 

@TrollDragon How do the WW2 headphones sound though?

They would have no sound, probably old carbon drivers like the old phones had. You would have to transplant new drivers in them but you would have your "Look".

Grado SR80i have decent soundstage, with solid sound all-around in the bass, mids, and highs. Some have reported comfort issues with the pads, but those are always personal preference. Roughly $100.

 

Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro has good bass, but the mids and highs are more recessed and less bright than the Grado. They are reportedly very comfortable. Roughly $230.

 

Phillips Fidelio X1: don't know too much about them.
