Jewellery-Inspired Headphones by Frends


The latest collection from Californian headphones manufacturer Frends is inspired by jewellery, bringing a refined and stylish approach to audio technology.

The statement piece of the collection, the Taylor headphones, are elegant and sophisticated, made from white leather and handcrafted rose-gold metal. Unusually, they feature no visible plastic. Memory foam ear cushions add comfort while the soft-touch fabric cord features a three-button microphone and control.

A smaller, subtler version – Layla – is also available, while the Ella model is a pair of white earbuds with delicate metal details. 

For more innovations in headphone design see the Stylus report Wearable Sound and the Stylus Industrial Design 2014 Industry Trend Transient. Also look out for the Transient update, coming soon.
