There comes a point in a pop-culture product’s life cycle when its ubiquity undermines its popularity. We see this happen all the time in the fashion biz (remember snap bracelets and jorts?), and the consumer electronics market is just as predisposed. Thank God.
Just as the extremely annoying omnipresence of the Nextel phone was its own undoing, it’s only a matter of time until the coolest headphones aren’t cool anymore (sorry, Dre!). When everyone sports the same thing, consumers run in the opposite direction.
The secret to being a trendsetter rather than a slave to fashion is to make your own mark. The trouble is, that tactic can be tough when it comes to our personal electronics. The solution: customization. And we’ve got just the thing.
V-Moda Crossfade LP headphones are comfortable, come with a slick case, an inline mic/control for smartphones, are available in a multitude of color combinations and, best of all, can be custom engraved with just about any logo or design you want. You want a set, don’t you? Good news: we’re going to give a pair away as part of our DT ‘Better Than Socks’ Holiday Giveaway.
To enter, just leave a comment telling us about the most embarrassingly out-of-style fashion trend you’ve ever fallen slave to. The contest closes on December 26, 2012, at which time we’ll announce the winner. And while you anxiously await our decision, you should probably pick out your color combo of choice, as well as what design you’d like engraved on your new headphones.
Don’t forget to check out the rest of DT’s “Better Than Socks” Holiday Giveaways all month long. Good luck!
