Most look the same and many whimper like a newborn kitten pining for milk. Not oBravo's HAMT-1s, though – they're perfect for those picky about both sound quality and appearance.

Each earpiece contains two separate drivers: a 40mm AMT tweeter and a dynamic neodymium bass/mid driver, which produces a detailed, rich sound more akin to a lion roaring for human flesh. And the looks – crafted from aluminium, wood, and leather, they'll look the business perched atop your head, and the sleek casing also provides a solid framework for some serious technology. Unique, exclusive and top-of-the-range – what more could you ask for? Well, for that lion to stop roaring for your flesh, but you can’t have it all.
