It took a little while, but after a good deal of preparation, deliberation and strategizing, we’re finally ready to lift the curtain on our brand new headphones! If you live in the city and like music on the move, please allow us to introduce you to your new best friend: his name is Capital, he’s a flexible yet rugged sort of character - and he comes in striking, new colours.
Capital was born out of a wish to create a pair of headphones that speaks to the inhabitants of the world’s major cities. People who want great sound that isn’t compromised by rain, snow or hail, who appreciate distinctive design and need flexible headphones that can take a beating.
This is why Capital delivers on all these fronts: Made out of nylon reinforced with fibreglass with a lightweight rubber-brace, the headphones are built to withstand heavy, everyday use in urban environments. It’s also tested to withstand the rapidly changing environments of the city while delivering clear and crisp sound from the protected 40mm driver. The materials have been handpicked for durability, and the design lets you adjust to your own perfect, comfortable fit. When you need to take them off, you just fold them right up and store them in the included carrying pouch. Simple as that.
The designers Lars Larsen and Jens Martin Skibsted from KiBiSi on the overall aesthetic of Capital:
" With Capital we've aimed to create an iconic pair of headphones designed for urban use. All components of the headphones play an integrated and cohesive role; the adjustment system used for Capital is reminiscent of snowboard bindings, in tune with the generally sturdy and eclectic solutions implemented. This is part of what creates the unique character of the headphones."
If you’re eager to get an early look at Capital, our colleague, Adam, will be showing the new headphones at the Agenda trade show in Los Angeles today (Jan. 6 2012). We will be on the Main Floor in booth I1.
After Tracks, Capital felt like the natural next step for us. We hope you’ll give the new kid in class a warm welcome...
