Copenhagen-based audio design company AIAIAI is releasing a new pair of headphones called Capital, designed by KiBiSi. While the two entities previously collaborated on the lightweight Tracks headphones, the can-style Capital is a beefier effort made to be both flexible and, more importantly to those of us who use the hell out of things, rugged:
Made out of nylon reinforced with fibreglass with a lightweight rubber-brace, the headphones are built to withstand heavy, everyday use in urban environments. It's also tested to withstand the rapidly changing environments of the city while delivering clear and crisp sound from the protected 40mm driver. The materials have been handpicked for durability, and the design lets you adjust to your own perfect, comfortable fit.
The adjustment system, as KiBiSi points out, "is reminiscent of snowboard bindings, in tune with the generally sturdy and eclectic solutions implemented." Those of us not attending today's Agenda streewear & action sports tradeshow in Los Angeles, where the wraps officially come off, will have to wait a bit longer to see those solutions in person.
