Aerial7’s Tank headphones bring the sound to match their hip looks, from low, rumbling bass tones to crisp highs. Thick cushions comfortably cocoon your ears, and the ear cup swivels so you can listen to music with one ear, DJ-style. The headphones come with two cables: a thick coiled cable for standard music players, and a thin, straight cable with a built-in microphone for use with an iPhone, BlackBerry and other cell phones. Claire loved the Tank’s noise-canceling features, which make it easy to listen to music and tune out the other commuters’ conversations.
You don’t have to be a teen or twenty-something to appreciate these headsets, but if you’re looking to turn the head of someone in that age bracket, Aerial7 can bring the noise.
