“If music is about free expression, shouldn’t your listening device share the same sense of purpose?” asks Ryan Heuser, co-founder and president of Paul Frank Industries.
He’s got a point—and an answer, thanks to a new series of headphones by Paul Frank and Skullcandy.
The collaboration ranges from oversized headsets with emblazoned with Julius the Monkey to black-and-white Skurvy the skull earbuds small enough to stash in your pocket. In total, four pieces feature the two iconic illustrated characters. Besides the bright graphic images, the ear-pieces are pure Skullcandy, from the comfy cushions to the adjustable rope wires.
If this partnership sounds like music to your ears, just wait; besides releasing a new series of bikes
this summer and launching a set of Lip Smackers
this winter, Paul Frank promises that they’ve got plenty of cool collaborations in store for the next year. Consider it serious comic relief.
