Too much plastic for $500. They "look" like $50 headphones.

It's about how they sound not how they look.

not because of build quality but for less weight on your head and for lower resonance.

Yes, but for $500 I would expect a pair that both sound great and are well made, and there are many examples like that to be had. The "fit and finish" on these just looks poor.

It's a fair point. However, from what I've read their plastic construction makes them really light, and if their build quality causes any problems you have Koss lifetime warranty.

They are VERY light, but also quite comfortable. Once on your head you'll be thankful they are plastic (They are quite large). Love my HD800S, but they're big and heavy and will fall off if you lean too far forward or backward.
