School Supplies: Headphone Masterpieces

-Back in the day, one of the best ways to get through a tough day of class was by listening to headphones threaded through the arm of your sweatshirt. Now it's time to upgrade. If you have grown tired of the same old iPod earbuds, you are in luck, as several companies are pumping out some nice ones just in time for Christmas. Below, headphones from WeSC x Steve Aoki, Nixon, and Parra.
-Seattle's Experience Music Project is home to some pretty cool artifacts, from Kurt Cobain's guitars to Biggie's pinstripes. However, nothing can top seeing the tattered pair of headphones used by Cody Chesnutt to record the incredibly underrated work of genius that is The Headphone Masterpiece. If you watch the video for "Look Good in Leather" (above), you'll see that the man has enough swagger to make Kanye look downright bashful.
