These limited edition headphones from ColorWare and Sennheiser look like they're about to take off from the ground, or at least go whizzing around a racetrack.

Inspired by the materials and color schemes of high-tech automobiles, rocket ships and artificial limbs, the limited edition headphones are patterned in a woven carbon fiber graphic. They feature bright Formula Red and sleek stainless steel accents. In terms of sound and fit, the limited edition headphones are a customized version of the Sennheiser HD 800: quality engineered, hand-assembled in Germany and built with only the finest materials and the newest technology. There are only 50 pairs of the Carbon HD 800 limited edition headphones, and they're selling for a price of $1,999 each.

Collaborations like this one between ColorWare and Sennheiser combine the stylistic abilities of one brand with the technological reputation of another, creating a double draw for potential buyers.
