LIVING Having the right gear makes all the difference when you want to enjoy music properly. Lola Cristall looks at some of the best quality speakers and headphones on the market
Lola Cristall is Paris editor of Lucire.
The Headphone by Bragi, true wireless earpieces, can be connected to any Bluetooth device for crystal-clear sound. The Knowles Balanced Armature speakers bring supreme sound quality. Through the number of presses, the user can switch from one song to the next, take a call or change the volume. With the Headphone’s audio transparency, the user can choose whether they wish to let sound in from the outside world or completely turn it off, depending on their environment and surroundings. With each charge, the Headphone can play up to six hours of continual music.
Look, touch and listen
Alcantara feels like suede but is vegan-friendly, and the luxury material can be found in two of Master & Dynamic’s headphones. Speaking with Alcantara’s CEO, Andrea Boragno, he said: ‘Alcantara is connected with Italian creativity, defining lifestyle. Our philosophy is about customization.’ Master & Dynamic marries the luxury of Alcantara with tech as revealed in their MH40 and MH30 models. The New York City-based audio company applies avant-garde designs, and delightful tactility to their offerings. The use of metal and Alcantara particularly brings out these two models.
Fashion meets sound
Val Kolton’s interest for music, tech and design are combined into his array of V-Moda creations. Kolton and chief designer Joseph Bucknall’s metal-adorned and coloured-cable headphones caught the eye of music and fashion lovers alike. Their Crossfade Wireless M-100 has an enticingly clear sound quality and is considered by experts to be one of the best-value quality headphones available. The cord easily folds into a handy hard-shell case. The Crossfade Wireless is just as sophisticated and appealingly practical.
A sound connection
JBL’s Xtreme, a splashproof Bluetooth speaker, has up to 15 hours of play time. Convenient for any part of the home or office, it allows for three distinct devices to connect with it wirelessly. It charges through dual USB ports, and is equipped with a 10,000 mAH lithium-ion battery. See more at www.jbl.com. •
