With the newly released 'Tormenta Cage Heaphone' from Venezuelan DJ and music producer Arca and luxury retailer Ssense, the term "noise-canceling headphones" takes on entirely different meaning. The bizarre headphone and headgear is designed as a piece of BDSM equipment, bringing music and sound into an unforeseen environment.
The Tormenta Cage Headphone is made primarily out of a leather cage with studded accents, and that leather holds a pair of headphones in place. The headphones themselves have suede-covered ear pads and a built-in remote. The headphones are wired as opposed to wireless, though that extra cable seems oddly appropriate given the context.
Arca and Ssense assure that the $6,450 product is an art piece rather than something for practical use, though that decision is ultimately left to the consumer.
