I’ve noticed that a lot of people find their headphones very desirable. It’s understandable — headphones are sort of an extension of one’s physical self.
One thing I don’t find particularly desirable about the headphones I own is the sound quality. I can obviously recognize incredibly tinny, cheap headphones, but beyond that, I honestly don’t know much about sound quality. I certainly don’t know enough to buy headphones based on sound quality.
Therefore, I picked these (and ultimately, found them desirable) because of their comfort and look. The parts that cover the ears slide up and down the headphone, making them highly adjustable and thus comfortable. Their size says “Don’t bother me! I’m working right now.”
