While custom-colored headphones have been a fixture now for a while courtside (or wherever celebs are to be found), Fanny Wang have introduced a custom program across their entire headphone line. For a $50 upcharge you can go wild with the colors of your choice; an online design tool lets you experiment to your heart's content. Want earthtones with pink highlights? No problem. Oranges and reds? Sure. Whatever suits your fancy (and uses colors within the customization pallette, of course), Fanny Wang will deliver.
Courtesy of Fanny Wang, we're giving away a pair of the company's top-of-the-line 3001 headphones, in custom colors chosen by the winner. The 3001 looks to cover all of your headphone needs, packing in everything but the kitchen sink. It's an over-the-ear active-noise-cancelling 'phone (utilizing a 4-mic system that claims to block 95% of ambient noise), with an onboard 5 watt amp (powered by a pair of AAA batteries) featuring +6dB of switchable bass boost, mic and iOS-friendly remote, and a rigid carrying case. And don't worry, the headphones will still work in passive mode if you neglect the batteries.
If you need more than that from your personal listening device, you may have to resort to strapping a car battery and a receiver to your chest, which would hardly be as practical and fashion forward.
To qualify to win, all you need to do is tell us how important features are to you when considering a headphone purchase. Do noise cancellation, active electronics, microphone and controller modules, etcetera, impact your decisions? Or does sound trump all?
The winner will be chosen randomly from among those who leave on-topic comments below (you'll have to register — no anonymous commenters, we need a valid e-mail contact address to inform you of your win), so don't be afraid to speak your mind. We'll take entries until midnight (Eastern Time), on November 25th, and notify the winner via e-mail on Monday, November 28th, and then put that lucky person in touch with Fanny Wang to finalize the order. Good luck!
