Headphones tend to spend a lot of time on your head, so it’s worth getting a pair that actually looks good. That’s right, headphones should be styled just like the rest of your fit. Depending on your aesthetic, a pair of over-ear headphones can look just right or completely out of place. Headbangers is a shoot by Highsnobiety which proves the accessory status of headphones by pairing of the best headphones around right now with some of the season’s best pieces.

With the cold setting in, and the prospect of more time spent locked indoors, over-ear headphones are a no-brainer. Not only do they keep your ears warmer, but the soundscape created by over-ear headphones is incomparable to that of in-ear phones; the all-encompassing audio of our selections, from Bang & Olufsen to Beats by Dre, promises escapism to the highest degree.
