These wireless headphones allow jetsetters and travelers to enjoy high-resolution sound with noise cancelling. They deliver sophisticated noise-cancelling with acoustic elements that include thin, seamless ear pads and a high-capacity housing, all expressed in a minimalist form. The composite leather housing reduces both external noises and touch-related noises made during use, giving you both physical comfort and a sense of quietness around you. These headphones generate a contrast in materials between the composite leather and the metallic headband that creates cozy lateral pressure. You can also fold them flat to take them with you wherever you go.
