I think the printed logo and model name would look better in gold, to match the audio input sockets. There's no real white anywhere else on the phone, just black and warm tones like brown or gold, so it just seems out of place, like an afterthought. Do HiFiMan ever change superficial detailing like this mid-model-run?
Changing the stitching in the headband strap to a brown that matches the wood tone, or possibly gold thread would have cosmetic benefits too, I think.
And after purchasing, gold or copper-plating the grilles could be an easy mod for owners, especially if replacing the grill material. I thing they'd work well with the wood colour and the black plastic ring + shadowing.
