Detroit-based watch and luxury goods maker Shinola has unveiled its first line of headphones. The Canfield Headphone Collection is available in four different styles and price points ranging from $195 USD for earbuds to $650 USD for the top-of-the-line over-ear headphones with stainless steel elements and lambskin ear cushions and inline microphone.
Why this matters: Shinola got its start in 2011 and has been received numerous accolades for investing in the city of Detroit and creating hundreds of jobs. Former Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama have proudly shown off their Shinola watches.
Notable quotes: “This introduction is special. It speaks to our love of music and craft and it speaks to the soul of Detroit. It is rare that one product can capture and transmit this much emotion and be so much fun to share. It has taken us a while to make it feel right, to make the steel and leather details and the sound all come together.” – Tom Kartsotis, Shinola founder
All four styles will be available this month in Shinola stores, online, and select U.S. retailers.
