IMO the best looking headphones are sennheiser hd598s, but AKGs generally look pretty sexy as well.

Always the one I'm *just* about to buy.

Currently in loooove with the Sennheise HD-25-1-ii I just bought. I loooove that technical bunch of wires on black. Form follows function.


But then again, I have some vintage gear in my living room most people would find ugly. Technics SB-6000 speakers for instance.

I think all the Grados look pretty nice, the Wooden ones especially.

The wooden Grados, LCD-2, Denon D5000/D7000.  The cups that Marty makes are just gorgeous.

Something like that?

Personally, I'm a fan of the Audio Technica wings. No need to worry about adjusting the headband whenever you move around or let a friend listen. I have two such headphones with that design (Audio Technica AT-AD900 and Superlux HD669) and it feels alien to me whenever I use a different headphone and have to adjust the band.. The look is distinctive enough if you're really into that. Downside is that the... headband doesn't have a middle part on your head so you can't use such headphones to hold back your hair.

Sennheiser, AKG and Grado are a few examples of brief design in Bauhaus style, which is good. Though the concept of design itself is something very wondrous. As for me, I wasn't so big on Vmodas in the beginning, particularly M80 and M100, but till I saw them on hand, I started falling into love with them.

This goes the same with my love for Mercedes GLK too. I found it really disgusting at my first sight. Though my impression about it changed drastically when I saw the real thing.

 
Funny how people's perceptions about things can change ah?
 
This may explain why I love my gf so much, who is a far cry from being photogenic.

Anyone here would like to share your views on the design of Japs headphones, such as JVC or Sony?
 
Steve Jobs once said at a design conference “The current wave of industrial design is Sony’s high-tech look, which is gunmetal grey, maybe paint it black, do weird stuff to it, It’s easy to do that. But it’s not great.”
 
So any thoughts on it, guys?
