After two years of development, Detroit manufacturing brand Shinola today announced the Canfield Headphone Collection, which joins the Runwell Turntable and Bookshelf Speakers in the company’s audio lineup.
Shinola’s in-house team tuned and engineered the Canfield Collection with high-quality materials, finishes, and processes to create a personal listening product with “rich, warm, and expansive” sound.
“This introduction is special, it speaks to our love of music and craft and it speaks to the soul of Detroit,” says Tom Kartsotis, founder of Shinola. “It is rare that one product can capture and transmit this much emotion and be so much fun to share. People always smile when they hold the headphones, feel the quality, and then listen. It has taken us a while to make it feel right, to make the steel and leather details and the sound all come together.”
The new collection will consist of four styles: Canfield Over-Ear, Canfield On-Ear, Canfield Pro In- Ear Monitor, and Canfield In-Ear Monitor. All of the offerings will be available in Shinola stores, online, and at select domestic retailers.
The Canfield Over-Ear headphones were acoustically tuned by sound engineers and tested in Shinola’s Detroit factory. They utilize a 50-mm dynamic driver with a neutral frequency response and features stainless steel components, interchangeable lambskin ear cushions, a top grain leather headband, and an in-line microphone.
The Canfield Over-Ear is available in black and cognac and retails for $595, while the Canfield On-Ear headphones in black retails for $650.
Similarly, the Canfied Pro In-Ear Monitors were developed and tuned in partnership with Campfire Audio in Portland, and are powered by a quad balanced armature receiver. The Canfield In-Ear Monitors were also developed and tuned at Campfire Audio and were designed to be comfortable enough for hours of use.
The headphones feature memory foam, silicone ear tips, and a dynamic driver designed to pull nuance from the music. The headphones retail for $495 and $195, respectively.
All four headphone styles will be available by December.
