I know this is subjective, but from the photos posted here I think they have an appearance about them of cheap headphones. A clumsy-looking design but just overall look cheap. Of course I know photos are not holding the thing in ones hand, but those photos do not to my eyes in any way shape or form look like $800 headphones. That feeling was only reinforced by the photo of them on the mans head! They look (again, to my eyes) awkward and very cheap-looking. They also have one of those awful headbands that shouts out zero thought given to it’s design/appearance. Just like that utterly ridiculous AKG N90Q headband (also the B&W P9, which I own but would never wear outside!) where only the top point touches the head and the rest veers out horizontally. But obviously from the preceding comments here, I am pretty much alone in these thoughts!
