Headphones make for great stocking stuffers. They also make for great things you can buy yourself at pretty much any time of year. 

Whomever they're for, you might want to check out the new Canfield Collection from Shinola, the Detroit-based company responsible for some very handsome watches and some very handsome other stuff. They spent the last two years designing and engineering these stylish on-ear and over-ear headphones, and, lucky for you, they just became available today

With lambskin-encased memory foam ear cushions and top grain leather headbands, they're just about the best-looking headphones you'll ever see (or wear). Thankfully, they've also got the technical specs to match. Acoustically tuned by the hard-working folks in Shinola's Detroit factory with a 50mm dynamic driver, you can expect as rich and crisp a sound as anything on the market.

So if you know someone who might like a pair for, say, that holiday with the ornately decorated tree, pick one up before they sell out and wrap it up. 

(We won't judge you if you can't help but test 'em out for yourself beforehand.)
