Hi. I have been a member here for a while now. I am looking for a pair that look fashionable to be used with my iPhone. I really like the sound signature of my DT880s. I want a pair that look kinda like the beats or the Sol Republic or the SMS by 50 Cent. You know the look they have. I am not a bass head though so that is why I don't want those mentioned above. I like the Shure SRH840, but they are too heavy and cannot wear them for too long. Can anyone recommend something for me? Thanks.

Are you serious? How about some Fanny Wangs with fake diamond studs? Those make a fashion statement.

And people have good things to say about the new Studio's. I have yet to hear them though.

Hahaha that's funny. I love sound from audiophile cans, but they do look a bit nerdy. I just want something that doesn't scream NERD in public. You know what i mean?

I would personally go for the Sennheiser Momentums. They hold a certain kind of fashion appeal to them, but in a good classy way instead of a trendy teenage way. 
 
If you want a more modern looking headphone, maybe the Sony MDR-1R would be a good choice as well.

The Momentums have no high end according to this frequency graph. I'm looking for something closer to the DT880s.
