In all fairness, I agree with the OP. Instead of alluring, sensuous and sultry, I see them as frustrating, uncomfortable and ridiculous. They seem much more like an anti-product, one that can drive people away from wanting to convert due to their impractical nature, absurd price point and little return for high investment.
I like the idea of wireless when it’s not so f’ing stupid looking. Especially when paired with Apple’s shitty headphone quality.
