Ai Yai-Yai!

Kitsuné teams up with AIAIAI for Fashion Week 'Phones

Put down those hard plastic pieces of crap that Apple calls earbuds.

Ditto for the aircraft control tower headphones Dre calls Beats.

Denmark-based audio manufacturer AIAIAI has teamed up with tres-chic Parisian fashion house (and sometime record label) Kitsuné for a limited edition collaboration of its Tracks headphones, just in time for Copenhagen Fashion Week. (You're going, right?)

These look as good as they sound, and you won't feel like a walking billboard for a brand.

On the outside: Scandinavian simplicity with a bit of Walkman aesthetic in aluminum and leather. On the inside: 40mm drivers with 32 Ohms and a frequency range of 20-20,000Hz — which means high-quality sound with a good blend of bass and treble.

As a bonus, the headphones come with a QR code that lets you download a Kitsune-curated playlist, so you'll have fresh tunes right off the bat.

Part of Kitsuné's fall/winter 2013-14 collection, these will hit both Kitsuné and AIAIAI stores early next month (you can grab them online then, too). The regular AIAIAI Tracks headphones run you $70, so expect something a little north of that for the Kitsuné collaboration.

Not like measly things like price or availability would ever stop your headphone hunt.
