Padded Nixon Headphones: Love or Leave?

Long known for their hip, smart watches, the company Nixon is expanding into geeky territory with some rad-looking headphones!

These Nixon the Master Blaster Headphones are available on preorder for about $250, and besides looking legit (I think Anne Hathaway would love them), I think the padding on the strap looks deliciously comfy.

However, your liking for these might differ if you're either not into the look of the padding, or are simply not an over-the-head headphones person (not to mention the price).

What do you think of them?

I got a pair of the wires (in-ear) and they sound and fit good. The details in the design are amazing, deffinately worth the $50.

I have a pair of these witch are the $100 model nixon came out with its the same sound quality imo and $100 cheaper! and they even look cooler and are not as bulky. whats really awesome is you can control the volume with the ear part of the headphones i think are best headphones out right now for $100

been waiting for Nixon to come out with these for awhile. They are available on December 15th and some stores have them on the WWW already. The Bunker Online has them for 10% off. If they sound as good as they look, it's a no brainer

i know why so many people love them, but i think that they are just way too bulky for me to ever get into them. i can respect the comfort and the amount of sound that they keep in and out, but they are just not for me. i'm an earbud person

I only use my headphones on the train to/from work, so whatever I use needs to be portable. I don't mind dropping some change on quality A/V gear, but this just isn't practical for me.

I love the look of these. I'd totally wear them at work where I need over the head headphones.

I definitely wouldn't wear these on a train ride or anything... but they do look pretty nice. The price, however, not so nice.

I've been obsessed with over-the-head headphones for awhile now. I'm about to invest $200 in some Bose ones, but I might re-think it for these ;-)
