True friendship can weather the storm of fame -- just look at Simon and Garfunk..um, Loggins and Messi...OK, Ed Lover and Dr. Dre. Wait, he's not the Dr. Dre? This idea sucks. Weathering their own burgeoning stardom by bringing you tunes, the crew at Frends Headphones
Hitting the scene with musical earpieces designed to perform and tested "on the mountain, at the party, in the Jacuzzi, and in the mean streets", Frends' is the product of a group of pro snowboarding buddies who hit it big to varying degrees, but plan to stay "bonded together like Voltron", though given they're into extreme sports they probably all think they're Lance. On the large format side's the lightweight, old-school Alli, with small round foam ear pieces avail in 8 colorways, and the noise-canceling-square-ear-pad Classics, apparently inspired by early American industrial design and boasting a tangle-preventing fabric cord w/ built-in mic that also clicks to change tracks, pause tunes, and answer calls on PDAs, dispelling the myth that early American industrialists listened to music using lumps of coal. Because penetration's the bomb, they've also got buds like the multi-function cord mic'd Coupe (all-aluminum cylindrical shell, adjustable noise-reducing silicone tips) and the Clip, similar to the Coupe but with square bud detailing -- suggested for someone "who wants to be different, but doesn't need to shout it from the mountaintops", as if people who climb mountains just to talk about how they totally dug Sublime before you weren't already "different"
To ensure longevity they've even developed a proprietary super-durable cord conduit on each model to avoid the connection issues they noticed most headphones fall prey to following extreme use, meaning you'll never have to listen to your sycophantic "friends" rhetorically asking you "Who's the Man?".
