design direction

I want the design of the device to reflect the forms of classic microphones and classic/high-end/aviation headphones. As well as being beautiful objects they are pieces of audio technology that people can easily relate to; they are automatically associated with input (mic) and output (headphone) and are identifiable to the user. I feel that the look should be more minmal and reflecting the function rather than retro.

I am particularly interested in the 'spur' like connecton that allows the main unit to connect to the stand/headband. I think the same type of mechanism could be used to place sensors (i.e contact microphones) against a surface in a similar way to our original tone-arm idea but also be used to attach the device to a surface (leverage for suction cups and/or pins).
