Winter style – headphones

Feeling the chill of winter? Warm your lugs with these tuneful ear covers

A good pair of headphones is an essential part of any music lover’s life, and thankfully there are plenty of high quality cans around that haven’t fallen out of the ugly tree. Like these.

Audio-Technica ATH-ES7


Skullcandy Aviator

If its distinctive looks you’re seeking, look no further than the ice white version of these cans (sober black is also available). And the sound quality? Even better.

Monster Diesel VEKTR


Philips Fidelio M1

Designed in association with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, the Aviators are every bit as eye-catching as their namesake sunglasses. Don’t like the existing colours? Design your own custom pair.

AiAiAi Tracks


House of Marley Exodus

Monster shows there’s life after Beats with VEKTR, a link-up with Diesel that has delivered a the most angular ear-goggles we’ve ever clapped eyes one. Kryten would approve.


Lightweight and understated in the looks department, the M1s are the perfect set of cans for that daily commute to the big city. The audio ain’t bad either.


Style doesn’t have to be wallet-drainingly pricey, as the Tracks show. Small, simple and classy, they come with a built-in mic for effortless hands-free calling.


While Bob obviously had no input in the design stage, we can’t help but feel he may have approved of Exodus cans' bass-heavy quality and recycled materials, which include leather and wood.
