These headphones were worth the wait

Finally up for grabs after 2+ years in development, Aëdle's debut set of headphones are the luxe, minimalist brainchild of French artists and sound engineers, who promise there's "no compromise between song quality and design", and also speak English as a second language. Known as the VK-1, their over-ear, aircraft-grade aluminum stunner's available in carbon black or silver, coming with lambskin leather earpads, a detachable fiber-coated mic-equipped cable, and hi-def custom titanium inducers.
