Magnat with more than 40 years of experience in development of high-end speaker systems has collaborated with Pininfarina to come up with the Magnat LZR 980 by Pininfarina over-ear headphones. Designed to look like a futuristic ear-pod, the headphones are in a class of their own as they have a very profound curvy lines that run through the entire headband. Keeping in mind the comfort level, these headphones have a formfitting shape of the ear cups which quite frankly is not seen in any other headphones that I have come across so far.

For crystal clear and immersive audio the headphones are developed with laser measurements in vacuum chamber which put-forth a very transparent and dynamic sound experience. The earcups and headband are connected by iconic metal element in such a way that they look aesthetically classy and at the same time.
