for head-fiers looks are just an added bonus...excellence in sound it the ultimate priority. Even though I was kidding when I said you were "shallow" for getting the LCD-XCs for their looks, when you imply that the sound is secondary to the looks (i.e., you make it sound like having a trophy that is nice to look at is your ultimate goal), then we are not speaking the same language. But to each his own. I wonder why you are so touchy about it, though. We head-fiers will suffer ugly monstrosities, heavy helmets, funky colors, etc., all in the name of glorious sounds. For instance, only an audiophile would be caught dead wearing those rather stupid-looking, ugly-ass (at least in my opinion) AK1000s...or those older electrostatic headphones that look like two shoeboxes attached to a wire! But suffer it we will...just for the sake of sound.
