With the arrival of the Lou Reed X10i Headphones, you can be sure that the realm of celebrity headphones doesn't belong exclusively to rappers.

The former Velvet Underground singer/guitarist has collaborated with Klipsch to launch the Lou Reed X10i Headphones. These earbuds will do a great job blocking out external noise. The cables are dressed in a light purple with Reed’s signature scribbled in gold. The piece also has a 360-degree mic that supports the majority of Apple products.

It’s a bit of a surprise to see Lou Reed venture into the headphone market. How well his set will do against signature headsets like Beats by Dre and the upcoming RZA x WeSC collection is still yet to be seen.
