While sound quality comes first and foremost, battery life is nothing to scoff at when considering a new pair of headphones. Porsche Design’s latest pair of over-ears are ready to zoom by the competition, as the newly-unveiled PDH80 boasts up to 75 hours of listening time.
Like anything from the German design studio, the PDH80 is remarkably sleek on its own, but still has a surfeit of other tech specs that make it more notable. The headphones feature memory foam-filled ear cups inspired by racetracks and a metal hinge that takes cues from automotive design. They even feature a touch control panel that lets you play or pause songs and accept or deny calls, which is merely one example of how Porsche Design fused form and function in this latest release.
As far as noise-canceling capabilities are concerned, the over-ears are capable of lasting for an impressive 50 hours when utilizing the feature — easily enough to tackle any flight on your agenda, along with any layovers you might have too. Aside from remarkable battery life, the PDH80 boasts a 50mm neodymium driver, paving the way for high-resolution whether you’re listening to your favorite album or taking a business call. That said, the foldable headphones are perfect for any form of phone call thanks to their microphone with echo cancelation.
High-end noise-canceling headphones are a dime a dozen, but pairs that look as good as this — with specs as impressive as this — are quite hard to come by. Porsche Design’s PDH80 Headphones are available to pre-order on its website now for $425.
