Cool audiowear can be a hit or a miss, but if you can't find one that you love in KOTORI's collection of a hundred plus color combinations, you might as well stick with boring ol' black and white like the rest of the unhappy hipsters. However, if you're looking to branch out, KOTORI's expressive headphones should meet your creativity needs and then some.
Pairing up with Japanese Fostex, a supplier of recording and speaker gear for professionals, the KOTORI headphones are undoubtedly leagues above the standard iPod ones, though we wouldn't go too far as to say they're audiophile quality by any means.
Still, with such astounding looks, we'd be more than happy to sport them even when they're not plugged in. We love the cute Japanese aesthetic that's so minimalistic and delicious that we probably would have restrain ourselves from purchasing a couple to start a collection.
Each of the seven pre-set themes – pop, sweet, cool, vivid, natural, animal, and delicious – has a total of 15 variations. Priced at a mere $40 a pop, can you resist?
