Like most designers, I spend a lot of time with my headphones on, rocking out while I'm putting together layouts. I can't wear earbuds. Through some quirk of my ear canals, they just won't stay in my ears.
As a result, I've burned through a number of headphones, both with headbands as well as the behind-the-ear variety. But I've always been on the lookout for a pair of headphones that balance audio quality, affordability, and real design style.
You can't easily find a pair of headphones like that in America. But in Japan, sure you can!
