California Silverado Headphones: No Pick-Up Trucks Involved
August 8th, 2012
These solid-looking, retro-styled headphones are made out of die-cast metal, leather and titanium by the California Headphone Company. They have a couple of cool features, on top of looking pretty good.
The Silverado headphones have a premium 40mm titanium driver, and 280-degree articulating hinges. The large, padded headband is contrast-stitched and the leather cups look like they’ll fit over your ears nicely. The 3.9-foot-long cord has a secondary female jack on the end, which allows you to share your tunes with a friend without missing a beat, and a knitted zebra cloth finish on them to reduce tangling. Frequency response is rated at 20 to 20,000 Hz and the impedance is 50 Ω.
The Silverados sells for $225.95(USD) and are available this month, and include a nice leather carrying case with a carabiner clip for attaching it to your bag. If the Silverados are too expensive for your budget, California Headphones offers a less expensive, yet equally stylish model – the Laredo – for just $99.95.
