New logo

1) The headphones look extremely like the Dolby headphones.

2) The artist doesn't check on an LCD too... the antialiasing on the small text destroys it for LCD use. It's tolerable, but just so ya know.

Are you talking about this?

There aren't really too many ways you can logo a simple pair of headphones.

Here's HeadRoom's:

Napster's:

Here's Head-Fi's:

I can guarantee you that our graphic designer didn't pattern the Head-Fi headphones after Dolby's logo or HeadRoom's.

Regarding the anti-aliasing: I'm using a 15.4" LCD screen on a Dell Inspiron 7500, and the letters look fine. Apheared, what's it looking like on yours?

I like the logo, but I don't like the color very much. maybe you guys could mess around with that a bit...

are there any other logos so far?

I second Neruda's opinion on the logo.

Thanks for the input, guys. We'll likely make changes and adjustments to see what y'all like.

Neruda, yes, we have a few different logos to try. We'll likely make them available for viewing and comments later.

I don't know why but that logo reminds me of a "car parts" logo. I know I shouldn't take drugs before coming here.

It just looks indistinct... the text is actually larger than the button text on the header (ie: user cp, register, calendar) but the button text is more defined.... on a 14" @ 1024 @ 16bpp.

It looks fine on my Iiyama CRT @ 1280 x 1024 @ 32bpp

One slight criticism (suggestion) though... shouldn't the "h" of head-fi be capitalised?... if not... then... cool

Jude,
I'll have to join in on not caring for the color of the new logo.

Duncan: It's intended to be that way. We don't capitalize anything around here.

flashbak: We'll work through the color preference issue, and we'll also maybe post a couple of other alternative logos.

As some of you can see, we're working on the site and making some changes. Please pardon our dust if things get funny every now and then.

piling on while the logo is down

I have to second what has been said about the colors, definitely not my cup of tea. But then again, I am not an art critic, just a personal opinion. I'm looking forward to seeing the other options....

The orange world logo was better than the current red one, IMO.

THE LOGO KICKS ASS!!! Way to GO! It looks very cool IMO. My only complaint, although not really one, is that the difference in logos on the splash page and the forums page is kin dof strange. But the logos themselves are both great IMO!!

The red and black looks much better! My one suggestion is to extend the box all the way around the headphones. Leave that space white, just extend the box. Then it'd be perfect!
