Steve Aoki x WESC Headphones

WeSC was founded by six avid skateboarders and snowboarders in 1999 and is currently established in nineteen countries.

WeSC is not merely a brand in the fashion industry, but rather a company within the skateboard culture. A company that today makes clothes, but in the future, will represent product lines in other areas. WE creates “street fashion”, a fashion with its roots in a subculture that sets its own rules and follows its own trends.

WeSC is addressing people with awareness, no matter the race, religion or financial background, that all share the values and lifestyle of the founders. WeSC delivers “life after skate”, a more developed style that also targets people outside the skateboard community, but still shares its values. Our product line includes a diversity of garments – jackets, jeans, sweatshirts, shirts and blouses, underwear, pants and accessories like bags and caps. WE is not like other fashion companies. WeSC is unpredictable and does not follow trends.

Once again WESC gets together with a well known DJ to release pro model headphones. This time they worked with DJ Steve Aoki. They are available in a variety of colors, in-sync with each seasonal collection. They are now available at Karmaloop.

Correction- this is the first time WeSC collaborated with a DJ on headphones (in fact it's the first time they released headphones). As such they should be regarded as a fashion accessory- if you're serious about audio quality you will get more mileage for your dollar by buying a pair of Sennheisers.

The headphones were actually made by Sennheiser, and WeSC is just distributing them, so I guess you get the best of both worlds.

I love 'em. WeSC headphone have such cool retro/modern styling and according to the reviews I've been reading they sound great too.

I live in the UK so had problems finding them. In the end found them at HiFi Headphones in their WeSC retro headphones category.
