Shinola Introduces Collection of Four New Headphones

The following is a press release issued by Shinola.

DETROIT, MI | November 14, 2017 - Shinola is proud to announce The Canfield Headphone Collection. Designed and developed in Detroit and based in the belief that how it’s made matters, that how things look, feel and sound, matters. The Canfield adds to a range of Shinola Audio goods (Runwell Turntable, Bookshelf Speakers) that are distinctive in every detail.

Two years in the making, Shinola’s in-house team carefully tuned and engineered the Canfield Collection with the same rigor and craftsmanship we employ across our growing number of product categories. It was developed with the same high-quality materials, finishes, and processes we use to make our watches, and the sound signature is rich, warm, and expansive. This is an approach to personal listening that’s anything but disposable.

“This introduction is special,” said Shinola’s founder, Tom Kartsotis. “It speaks to our love of music and craft and it speaks to the soul of Detroit. 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. We are so proud of this effort from our Audio team. Their tireless efforts have created a product that personifies what Shinola has come to stand for.”

The new collection will consist of four styles: The Canfield Over-Ear, The Canfield On-Ear, The Canfield Pro In-Ear Monitor, and The Canfield In-EarMonitor. All will be available beginning November 2017 in Shinola stores, online, and at select domestic retailers.
