Based on the infamous yet utilitarian Sennheiser HD25 headphones, Element Headphones are a modern take on the classic with a masculine material combination and state-of-the-art tech.

Outside, they’re clad in three distinct finishes: distressed copper, damascus steel and oxidized titanium. Distressed copper gives the headphones a depth and warmth which ages and transforms over time. Damascus steel embodies an ancient metal folding technique whereby hundreds of layers of steel are forged together. Finally, oxidized titanium is simple but beautiful – when titanium is exposed to heat or current, the surface oxides into a permanent blue/purple iridescent hue.

Not just nice to look at, these compact cans sport a small footprint but deliver big sound. They’re also packed with features like wireless connectivity and gesture touch-control.

The cups are created by sectioning a sphere. This creates a ball and socket interface between the cups and the band, allowing a degree rotational movement to help the headphones fit better.
