These Lovely Sony Headphones Hide Bluetooth Inside Minimalist Design

By Mario Aguilar on at

Headphones are gaudy fashion statements these days, which is why it's nice to see Sony go with a minimalist design that recalls some of its early Walkman cans.

The new SBH60 headphones might look a little retro-fantasitc but don't let that fool you; they've got Bluetooth and NFC on board, and the built-in rechargeable battery is good for 13 hours of playback. Plus without wires, the minimal design looks fresh, and even more elegant and reductive than a similar wired pair from tasteful manufacturer AIAIAI.

At just 125 grams. the SBH60s are incredibly lightweight. They've got an on-ear design with cozy looking cushions. Smallish—if not totally tiny—30mm drivers push air behind the pads.

At £60 the beautiful headphones are also relatively affordable. Best of all they're only available here. Take that pesky US exclusivity. [Sony via Ubergizmo]
