ARTSPROJEKT, an artist’s guild of sorts dedicated to helping established and emerging artists find commercial opportunities, recently welcomed designer Tristan Eaton into the fold. Eaton, originally a street artist from Los Angeles, promptly got together with Skullcandy to produce a couple new designer headphones.
Part of the ARTSPROJEKT x Skullcandy collection, the two new headphones, the Grim Weaper Hesh 2 and the Sacred Samari Cassette, are designer takes on established Skullcandy headphones. The Hesh 2 aims for a powerful, balanced sound with conical, well-cushioned ear cups, while the Cassette is intended as an all-purpose set – the speakers are removable from the headband, and the cushions can be removed in case you want to wear the headphones over a hat. Both feature microphones for use with smartphones.
