Raise your hand if you’re a sucker for slick industrial design mixed with luxurious accents of leather and chrome.

Over ear wireless cans without the headband? I’ve come across some interesting things on the Internet when it comes to personal audio, but when I saw this form-fitted wireless headphone design, I have to say I was more intrigued than dismissive of them.
