Does anyone else think that the "elbows" on headphones look weird?

    I'm looking to buy a ATH-FC700 and while the cups look awesome, the elbows on the phone just look weird when you wear it. It just out to make all this extra space between the  band and your head. The last time I had phones like these with the bent elbows, I just looked like a loser wearing them. Does anyone else ever feel the same way?

    Yeah.  I know that the Korean headphone community, for example, call this the "Yoda effect", meaning that it's shaped to fit properly only on ppl with heads that is shaped like the Jedi master. [​IMG]
    There's a reason why some manufacturers do this though... this design reduces (or is supposed to, anyway) the clamping effect compared to the more standard arc designs, as it reduces the headband arc tension.

    I can't really see how my headphones look when they're on my head, and I try not to think about it.  Especially when I'm rocking out on my DT150s, which have the biggest, ugliest headband ever made.
