While there are plenty of cleanly designed headphones out there, NYC’s Caeden has just launched the Linea N° 1 and it’s beyond attractive. We found, while testing out the Convex Carbon and Gunmetal colorway, that there’s far more to it than good looks. The 40mm driver and max power of 50 mw deliver powerful bass and a crispness to the vocals. The sound is full with a balanced acoustic profile, delivering music as it’s supposed to be heard.
The headphones also happen to be exceptionally light (just 4.76 oz), so a pair rests gently on the head without too much pressure on the ears, making an altogether comfortable experience. A purchase of a pair comes with two cords, one featuring an iOS and Android remote, and another featuring a three-button controller and microphone. The sound-isolating headphones also slim down and fold some, for easy storing in an accompanying travel pouch. The high quality materials—from the vegetable-tanned leather headband to the polished gunmetal details—combine to create a stylish, superior functioning item.
