This was a set of headphones I designed with Johnny Cash as my main inspiration. With that in mind I designed the headphones to be black stained wood with heavy inspiration from his favorite guitar. This was done in Rhino with the Brazil rendering engine.
The Man in Black
Given that these headphones are designed with the Man in Black as the sole inspiration, there was only one color they could possibly be.
I went with an over-ear design for these headphones since that is what studio headphones are and given that Johnny Cash is a musician, anything other then the best sound quality would be an insult.
It's all in the Details
One of my personal favorites as far as details go is in the stitching. I chose to go with blue since that was Cash's favorite color.
All about the Music
The cable plug for the headphone input is modeled after a standard plug on a guitar.
When all the pieces are added together, and you put some thought into what is needed and what isn't, you end up with headphones that are beautifully simple and have just the right amount of details to define the style.
