It is more important than one may think to get good quality headphones such as the Helix-IR Headphones. Not only does the music sound better, it is also more comfortable, ensuring that your ears are well taken care of.

Designed by Jean Hong in collaboration with the Dassault Systèmes DesignStudio team, the Helix-IR Headphones are currently only a concept. Yet, its hardcore look and quality make will surely inspire someone to produce it sometime in the near future.

Made out of sheet aluminum, which has been laser cut and stamped, the Helix-IR Headphones are lightweight and flexible while sporting a high-end finish. I especially like how the headband portion seems to wrap around to form the earphones, creating a snail-like design.
