Ok, this is rather silly, but it should be fun.

See the custom art choices offered for the Westone ES3. If you were to buy a pair of these, which one would you choose?

I was going to do this as a poll but there are just too many choices!

Cosmos all the way Baby! (Celtic knot is also nice and I've always had a weakness for Celtic art, it just isn't integrated nicely enough...)

I love the "On fire" style. Very groovy.

I like the Gear Head one, very funny. But, I would go with something that is less notable, personaly.

I really like Tribal, Celtic Knot, Biohazard, and Black Widow. The other ones are just stick out too much for me, I like the simple designs.

I quite like Urban Camo...is there something wrong with me?

Other than that, Gear Head would be highly amusing for about 5 minutes then get old...I'd probably get something completely custom, a logo or cartoon character (Gir monitors, anyone)

I suppose that I should have voted too. I like the Keys best, followed by the Happy Clouds.

The keys, to me, somehow say 'Ray Charles', perhaps because he usually dressed in a black suit, and with his dark sunglasses, etc. There is a certain happiness in the Keys. They tell others in a simple way that you're listening to music and that you are not hearing imparied.

The Happy Clouds have a musical connotation as well, as though the music is lifting your spirits and putting you in a heavenly place, but they would be too 'cutsey' to actually order.

I think the Leopard Skin is nicely understated, and would be quite suitable and stylish for a sexy young professional woman. They could go with certain earrings that my girlfriend wears.

It's interesting that some people are voting for the likes of On Fire and Flaming Skull. Makes me wonder if there is a connection to the types of music people listen to. I'd associate those with heavy metal, whereas the Keys and Happy Clouds that I like are better suited to jazz and female vocals, which is what I listen to mostly. Cosmos for Pink Floyd and electronica, etc.

Cosmos, it reminds me of my days driving up and down the east coast to see Dead shows.

Urban Camo is kind of cool, and it works! I can't tell you how many times I've looked at this page for the past several months as I've debated about getting a pair of these, and I've never noticed that one! It would work well for someone with dark hair that partially covers their ears. The 'camo' effect is actually what I had in mind with the Leopard Skin design for my girlfriend, because it would blend well with her skin tone.
