Clearly, lesser headphones weren’t doing the job. According to Zedd, he “wanted to create headphones that don’t only look and feel incredible but also sound REAL.” The caps are his emphasis, so you know he means business.
He’s creating the headphones along with Japanese company Double Zero. They are set to launch on April 19, so we haven’t gotten our hands on a pair quite yet. What we do know is that they come in two different colors, either all black or all white. Simple, yet classy. The price tag is a little hefty at $199.99. But compared to brands like Beats that’s not too horrible.
Zedd put out the official announcement video on his Facebook page. Take a look:
They look pretty sleek from this clip, but the real test will be how they sound.
Zedd’s not the only DJ to branch out into other areas. Last year Kygo launched his own clothing line. Dillon Francis also branched into making hilarious YouTube series, but that’s a whole other story.
