Once you have your hands on the brand new iPhone 5, you are going to have to get yourself a set of brand new headphones to go with them. 

If you are looking for something that produces a phenomenal sound so you can really enjoy all your favourite bands on iTunes but want something a bit different to your standard iPhone headphones, then look no further.

Quarkie, a British brand, launched their fantastically quirky collection of in ear headphones last month to rave reviews.  The collection features seven different designs including snake heads, cat eyes and rusty bolts – definitely quite unlike any other headphone on the market at the moment.

The Quarkie headphone design is the result of a designer’s vivid dream about snake’s heads and cats eyes.  The dream was then transformed into reality when a team of innovative and imaginative British and Asian-Pacific artists, music lovers and electronic engineers came together to produce the funky audio art range.

Unlike some headphone designs, the incredible sound has not been comprised in order to produce some awesome looking designs.  As music lovers, the group’s goal was to bring British studio monitor quality sound to an in-ear headphone range whilst keeping in line with their philosophy that high-performance technology products can be beautiful and individual as well as functional. The results speak for themselves.

Whether you are a music junkie, a fashionista or an animal lover, there is something to suit you.  The funky designs include: yellow viper snakeheads, green viper snakeheads, snake eyes, cat eyes, chameleon eyes, purple gemstones and rusty bolts.

Quarkie headphones achieve the incredible sound by using specially developed 13.5 mm drive units with aluminum voice coil and neodymium magnets. As a result, they have low distortion, wide-bandwidth and excellent transient response. They are also very sensitive allowing them to reach maximum performance potential with portable devices.

Each pair of headphones is packaged with four sets of high quality ear buds (XS, S, M and L), instructions on how to fit the buds in correctly for maximum noise isolation, a microphone / function controller compatible with iPhones and Android phones and a sharing splitter. The gold plated 3.5mm plug and cloth covered cables minimize tangling and micro phonics.

So, if you are after an accessory to really ensure you get the best possible sound from your iPhone 5 then get your hands on one of these phenomenal designs from Quarkie and stand out from the crowd with one of their quirky designs.

Quarkie’s Audio Art range has an RRP of £69 and are available online direct at www.quarkie.com.
