May 15th, 2013 – It’s about time. The past fifty years have been dominated by large clunky headphones that don’t cater to female form. Somebody needed to solve this acoustical travesty, and that somebody is Sweden-based industrial designer Maria von Euler, founder of the female-friendly headphone company Molami. Von Euler combined quality audio with avant-garde design, incorporating a function meets fashion ideal with their latest Twine Headpiece – headphones truly designed with the contemporary individual in mind.
Twine is a soft headpiece made of silk-satin and chiffon blends that comfortably wraps around your head with 18K gold accent pieces – giving you a unique listening experience. The headphones are designed from a fashion standpoint, worn as a selected accessory and tailored for the style savvy individual. Von Euler has meticulous attention to detail that can be seen in each pair of Molami headphones – from the tailored silhouette of each model down to the braided textile-wrapped cords and discreet accents plated in gold and silver.

Matthew Choto is a San Fransisco based industrial designer who specializes in creating toys, sneakers, furniture, and now headphones. The recent Reebok Design Competition winner has upped his game with his new IMMATURE collection. The series features a luxurious pair of black and gold studio headphones, along with a matching wristwatch. Choto says that the headphones and watch were “designed for a theoretical high end brand, inspired by Hip-Hop culture.” The sleek headphones are predominantly matte black with a raised gold plaque at the ears, they take on a soft angular form with rigid geometric contours as accent marks. The headphones are a mere concept now, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see people rocking them in the near future.
