Before there were iPhone cases and tablet covers, the biggest tech fashion accessory was headphones–and perhaps the proliferation of tech accessories to go with all of these new gadgets has brought about a renewed interest in the look and style of headphones and earbuds.
They’ve almost become a status symbol with some high-quality, artfully designed headphones ringing in over $200 (and not just because they sound good). We even get regular press releases about celebrities wearing a brand’s headphones–pretty much confirming our theory that headphones have officially become a coveted fashion accessory. The proliferation of fashiony DJ’s like Harley Viera-Newton and Alexa Chung probably doesn’t hurt either.
So, without further ado, click through for a few of what we believe to be the coolest, prettiest, most coveted new high-end headphones. Could fine jewelry headphones (diamonds, etc) be next?
