No musician creates music to be heard through tinny earphones. Music is an art that can only truly be wholly appreciated when we can experience all that it has to offer. We mean that if you can’t hear half of a track, be it the intricate higher melodies, or the bassline, then you can only really half enjoy it.

There’s a lot to think about when buying a pair of headphones. While sound quality might be the most important aspect of a pair of headphones, we’d argue that if your headphones don’t stand up on an aesthetic level too, then what’s the point in having them? Realistically, the sound quality doesn’t matter if you’re reluctant to even wear the headphones. That’s why we’ve rounded up a selection of headphones that look as good as they sound. From Sennheiser to Bang & Olufsen, we’re dealing with audio engineering’s golden children, and they know that form is just as important as function.

Check out the headphones that look as good as they sound below.
