The proper headphone seems to be in demand right now - and for good reason. Not only are they often a welcome sonic alternative to the tinny 'clock radio' effect of certain in-ear designs, now other people are wearing them too we don't have to feel like we've just walked out of a recording studio when we're actually queueing for the cash machine. If you want something a little more interesting than the usual silver and black designs, Swedish brand We are the Superlative Conspiracy or WeSC (pronounced We-S-C) could have a pair for you.
While some of the more garish models flirt with the boundaries of taste, we kind of like the colour combinations in the Oboe range – and considering the price (from £39.99), they sound pretty good too. They've opened a new shop in London on Carnaby Street, otherwise have a look at their online store.
