Shinola have launched a new line of luxury headphones that are much like their namesake line of luxury watches: long-lasting quality, and impeccable style.
Founded in 2011, the Detroit-based Shinola is best known for their lines of luxury watches, bicycles, journals, and leather goods. But recently they’ve made the jump into the high-end headphones market with their Canfield line of in-ear, on-ear, and over-ear headphones.
Prices start at $195 for the in-ear model, $350 for the on-ear model, and $450 for the over-ear model.
With top grain leather, stainless steel, and soft lambskin, Shinola’s new line of luxury headphones will turn heads. However, for a pair of headphones that weigh three-quarters of a pound, there’s a surprising lack of sufficient padding. In addition, these headphones are made with smaller heads in mind with little room for adjustment. If you’ve got a bigger head, you might want to look elsewhere.
The Canfield On-Ear is all about that bass with an impressive low-end performance with a patented rich, warm and expansive sound that will appease any music fan.
Shinola’s Canfield headphones are an exciting new entry into the growing luxury headphones landscape. With their impressive low-end performance, and affordable prices, Canfield is what listening to music should sound like.

The Shinola On-ear is my favorite headphone now. It was good enough out of the box, but with my $4 EQ app on my iPhone, the sound comes alive, big time.
