Remember when buying headphones used to be about the music? Now it's all about fashion and appearances and "which headphones make me look like my ears are being made love to by tiny little penises the least?" And sure, it does look a little like the manufacturer went out of their way to paint the headphones "shaft tone." That color just so happens to pump a deeper bass sound the best. If you love music and are comfortable with your ears' sexuality, these are the dong buds you've been waiting for.
