In keeping with the ongoing trend of celeb headphones, Tiesto has announced that he is throwing his hat into the fray via his “AKG by Tiesto" model. Artists—having the highly stylized aural sensibilities that they do— justify these creations by marketing them as “the optimal vessel for experiencing their lush tuneage." With “Beats by Dre” currently dominating the competition, Tiesto has joined with world-renowned sound engineers “AKG” to put his unique spin on the ear candy.
“AKG by Tiesto” is set to offer three distinct models by the time it launches this June. In hoping to achieve the perfect balance of style and performance, Tiesto claims his phones shall continue his personal ethos of “giving fans a breathtaking audio experience”. Prices aren’t yet listed, but given the nature of these celeb creations, I’d lean closer to Mr. Benjamin as a starting point.
In any given niche of our consumerist society there shall always be competition to produce the most stylishly effective result. Whether its ride-on lawnmowers, cell-phone casings, or the aforementioned headphones—if there is a market, there are those that shall pander to it.
The headphones will be available online and at select retailers this summer.
