If you’re looking for a pair of cans to match your Italian leather shoes – or a classy motorcycle jacket – the World of McIntosh Pryma Headphones ($500) are just the thing.
Crafted by hand in Italy (where else?), these bad boys feature a unique design, offering something completely different in a world of humdrum headphones. A gorgeous leather headband – with copper or stainless steel adjustable buckles – combines nicely with die-cast aluminum ear cups that shine a glossy finish. Audio is backed-up by Sonus Faber, makers of world class speakers, who fitted the shells with 2 x 40mm dynamic drivers and 99.99% oxygen-free Copper cables for minimized distortion and superior sound output.
The luxury cans arrive in five designs (Coffee & Cream, Pure Black, Heavy Gold, Rose Gold & Dark Grey, and Carbon Marsala) with interchangeable headbands, so you can add your personal touch. Available for pre-order now, the Pryma Headphones should be officially released October 2015.
