Fanny Wang unveils on-ear headphones

Fanny Wang Headphones, a new company founded by Hard Candy Cases CEO Tim Hickman, has announced its first offering, a pair of On Ear Headphones. Featuring a Beats by Dr. Dre-inspired design—the company claims the sound engineer behind the acoustics of Monster’s popular headphones also worked on Fanny Wang’s—the new headphones sport 40 mm titanium drivers, a “DuoJack” inline splitter for sharing music, a collapsible tri-fold design with a metal hinge, and a sound signature that is said to include a modest bass boost while remaining appropriate for various genres of music. In addition to the initial On Ear offerings, the company also plans to launch on-ear iPhone and over-ear noise-canceling models in Q1 2011. Fanny Wang’s new On Ear Headphones are available for pre-order now in red, black, or white, and will ship December 27 for $150.

Even if they WERE good, I could not use a pair of headphones from “Fanny Wang” wink
The joke material here is limitless…
Being an audiophile snob, I doubt they’d cut it for me anyway, which is just as well!

@sb: I was going to say…‘specially if you know the actual anatomical definition of “fanny.” (I’ll bet Hickman does.)

*inserts immature joke here*
All anatomy humour aside, the integrated splitter is a fairly novel feature that I suspect will strike a chord with some people. They certainly look like a more feminine version of the Beats headphones.

Can’t say I’d be interested in them myself, since I prefer over-ear cans to on ear headphones.

These look very cool.  And if they come from Hard Candy, a company that makes a bunch of great products, they’re likely to be high quality.
