Dr. Dre, who? Toss aside your rapper-endorsed headphones for the real designer deal: these wooden stunners by Dolce & Gabbana. Crafted by top-notch audio specialists Grado Labs, these “entirely hand-made” headsets—how is that even possible?—boast shells wrought from beautifully burnished mahogany, etched with the flamboyant Italian house’s typeface. (To be fair, these techno-luxe objects are surprisingly restrained for Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, and are actually very quietly beautiful in their pleasing lack of embellishment.)
Aesthetics aside, the DS2012’s so-called “open-air” tech allows for precision sound transfer at both ends of the frequency band, so now you have the option of plugging these in and getting jacked up on the thumping beats while viewing D&G’s latest runway presentation on your tablet. What can we say? Music loves fashion.
