IDEA International, the design shop, teamed up with one of Japan’s oldest audio companies, Ashidavox, to create a pair of cans that look like they’re from the 1970s. Or 60s. Or 50s. Whatever! They look as timeless as ever.
These IDEA x Ashidavox Dyanmic Headphones are obviously inspired (if not, directly related to) by the Ashidavox ST-90. The minimal retro design is the same but the headphone’s internals have been reworked and rejigged around to provide better sound and comfort. The headphones can deliver a frequency range of 25-18,000Hz and use a special urethane material on its ear cups for more comfortable listening. $US140. [Vetted Shop via Acquire Mag]
