Is it? I must have missed previous comparisons... don't recall any others. It's the "toilet bowl" one that I think is old and too often repeated.

Edit -- probably should have figured that someone else would have made the connection before

. It hit me while I was reading another thread with someone comparing full size cans to "princess leia headphones."

While I would agree that the toilet bowl comparison is more oftent used, I have also seen the stormtrooper helmet analogy used on several occasions as well.

Hi fewtch,
a while ago, larry from headphile opened on up, He than painted the 701 screens black for a two tone color.

After that, Larrys 701s have been known as the stormtrooper akgs

Ahh well, my bad... missed that analogy somehow, or maybe it was buried in my subconscious. Anyway, maybe I'm the first to post pictures of both.

Just because the "toilet bowl" comparison is overused doesn't make it any less true.

Yeah, for some reason my Buck Rogers analogy never stuck - what can I say, I don't always hit home runs

I think the whole Ipod design is a Star Wars Stormtrooper thing. I use a new LCD projector at work that is incredibably sweet, but is the same color with rounded edges, etc., and looks for all the world like some gadget you'd see a Storm trooper carrying around - well, if he was some techno/presentation nerd.
