I love my Audeze LCD-2 headphones, but I don’t want to be seen in them ( is it just me or do most people look like complete tools with over-ear headphones on?)
I don’t think that people look too goofy in the the Abyss Diana, but it’s a bit pricey, so I’m wondering if there are any other headphones that both sound and look good or should I just stick with IEM’s whenever other people are around?
I hate to sound shallow, but I just want to avoid having friends laugh or turning women off.
I would agree tbh. Also even beautiful headphones like ZMF look goofy once they are actually on your head. But Focal headphones I think look best in general and also once it’s in your head altho that is 100% subjective
I love the look of the sennheiser had 600 range and the 660s looks the best of them all in my opinion. If I have to use cars as an analogy, sennheiser gives off a Porsche vibe to me and Porsche is my favourite car brand.
I would say most things Focal look absolutely sex. I think the T60rp with the wood look way better than they’re comfortable. Although to be fair they give you that kind of retro-technician look with their square-ish design and adjustment rods for the cups. Also, any Denon or Fostex headphone modded by Lawton Audio. That wood is drool inducing.
ZMF has some pretty nice lookers as well, but we’re enroaching the bulkier end of units here. But I’d probably take anything ZMF over Audeze if we’re going to look at headphones with a bit of girth.
For IEM’s I’d have to say Moondrop Starfields. Absolute stunners for little cost. On some level I think the Shouer Tape Pro look great, but the awkward cable sleeve make them look really silly around the ear, looks way better with custom cable (got one in matching silver / blue).
oh neat! someone is going to look oddly at me for this but half the fun of owning my Noire is for the build alone, i just want to possess it!
that’s not saying i’m not happy with the sound quality, i am, i really am, these are my daily drivers, came off of a pair of Hifiman Aryas, not implying anything with that, just that i’m more than satisfied with the Noire. The Arya’s are just superior technically across the board it seems
