… gizmo of the year. Sennheiser HD437 headphones.
There are some things that are such great value, so well built, so… so.. faith-in-the-human-race-restoringly excellent that you feel uncontrollably good about them. These headphones are exactly that. In a world where everything is a rip off, these guys ride in on a white charger and rescue the day. If you paid £50+ for them, you’d still like the lightweight, iPod friendliness and the excellent, ear-warming sound.
But they don’t cost £50. They cost just £15. A business associate tried them on in a meeting this morning. “I love them!” he said “I like the way they fit so snugly. They’re.. they’re… comforting”. That’s exactly the word I was thinking of.
