    If I could give you one of these for free, which one would you choose?

    choose based on design please

    Thank you

    Personally I like the design of the eskuche better.

    I am in the market for new headphones, and I would be very interested to learn how these one's perform. They look great.

    I like the second ones too. The first pair looks too minimalistic for me.

    eskuche, by far. The first ones remind me too much of those puffy headphones Sony packaged w the old Walkmans, which were uncomfortable and had bad sound.

    Eskuche. The first are too thin, and the ear...pads look like foam.

    awesome response! thank you.

    please keep giving me advice.
    the headphones will be given as a gift

    the idea was to get the headphones used in the movie 500 days of summer, but it turns out those aren't good enough.

    You want quality, I can't recommend these enough. Excellent engineering and sound. :)

    the second one sorta like looks like a AKG on the first glance so i would go for that
    if affordable though going for the real deal (AKG K141 mk 2, AKG K171 mk2) is hardly wrong ... just avoid AKGs with non replaceable cords

    it's been very helpful thank you all. from reviews on online stores some people said the eskuche stop working before 6 months.

    So I got into these other cans with good reputation for the sound, and yet still look retro (and on budget).
