Hello again! I just had to get this one more post up before the weekend, because they are too deliciously yummy to resist!
Across the urban landscape, how many individuals are plugged in to their iPods and mp3s, surrounding themselves with the tunes of their hearts - and why not express that with an extra dash of color which brings out your personality?
If you've enjoyed the AIAIAI Tracks Headsets I blogged about yesterday, you would love this one: Urbanears Headphones.
A Stockholm based company, Urbanears is made up of a collective group of individuals from different backgrounds, but hold the same believe in the concept of producing headphones with an in depth understanding and respect of how they are used and why. For them, design is the transformation of functionality to the human being, and beyond the obvious sound quality, they hold a vision of making headphones that felt more like clothes than plastics, which the users would feel good to wear in public spaces.
I love their vision and concepts! It is about being different, not conforming to the norm, and taking something relatively mundane and functional, and putting a kick of individuality to it - fantastic!
Urbanears recently launched their 2011 Spring/Summer collection, and the styling and photography is absolutely superb! (I tried researching a little on the photographer/stylist, but did not manage to secure a name - if you know who is responsible for this creatively awesome composition, please let me know!)
Sighs and drools... Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
