Estilo. It’s one of your many middle names.
And while you’ve never booked a flight to Argentina before dusting off your alpargatas, much less worn white after Labor Day, sometimes things happen.
Bags go missing. Socks get mismatched. And out of nowhere, a pair of size 0 leather pants turns up precisely where you swear you left your khakis.
For all those times, we present the Beats Executive Headphones, a pair of hi-fi audífonos so elegantly eye-catching, they turn any wardrobe fail into a win, available now for preorder.
Like the rest of the Beats family, the Executives have been designed by a highly renowned doctor of musicology from South Central LA. And unlike the ones you might’ve seen on undergrads in the subway, these are constructed from a combination of leather and brushed aluminum similar to the interior decor of Air Force One. (Though our Homeland Security contact has yet to verify.)
But don’t think they’re more form than function. When business class gets rowdy on the red-eye, you’ll slip them on and be transported to a silent space quieter than the surface of the moon. Go ahead, bask in their noise-reductive bliss—just for a moment. Then sit back, push play and enjoy a sonic journey of impossibly crisp vocals and a bass range that plunges deeper than the Marianas Trench.
Just remember: if you can hear yourself singing along, you’re scaring the guy sitting next to you.
