Skullcandy, maker of high end headphones, partnered with the NBA at the start of the 2009-10 season, releasing a line of player-specific headphones with team logos. The headphones, made for Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade, as well as Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwight Howard, Kevin Garnett, Derrick Rose, Andre Iguodala and Deron Williams, sold for $49.95 on NBAStore.com, at Best Buy and other retailers.
The company then made a limited edition of NBA All-Star headphones.
On Tuesday, the company is releasing a special limited edition of NBA Mix Master headphones in honor of the NBA playoffs, dubbing them “the greatest professional DJ headphone ever.” There will be just 100 pairs of the headphones – for $299 each – available for each of six players: Wade, Bryant, James, Garnett, Rose, and David Lee.
The headphones are each numbered – you can find the number where you adjust them to fit your head – and come in a fancy case with team colors. There will be just 20 pairs of the headphones for each player sold at Skullcandy.com and 80 for each player exclusively at Apple stores in Miami, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago and New York.
