Once, the bud was cool. Now the trend is for larger headphones, which come in appealing designs in a multitude of colours.

“Headphones are the ultimate style statement and are no longer just for the gadget guru or music aficionado,” says Dustin Botha, director of Skullcandy South Africa in a statement.

“Headphones have replaced eyewear as the dictator of dressing from the top down. Today, you can customize or celebrate a catwalk look quite simply with your choice of audio attire.”

He said it was also an urban street trend to wear them not plugged in, but loose around the neck.

Skullcandy South Africa offers a range of product that combine fashioniability, precision highs and attacking base. Blend catwalk trends with your favourite audio product by adding these headphones to your summer wardrobe.

Shown are two styles for men (Camouflage and Atzec Print); and two styles for women (Dotty and White).
