Fender jumps into the headphone game with these $500 beasts

There have been incredible advances in headphone technology over the past ten years.

Just think about it for a second. Today, in 2016, you can use a pair of earbuds when you are working out that are totally wireless. I think back to 1996, the year I graduated high school, and wireless headphones would have been such a preposterous notion back then, like something out of Back to the Future.

But that's the world we now live in. Go to any gym in the world and you are likely to see more wireless Beats headphones than wired. They are a regular part of everyday life, and we take them for granted.

But headphone technology continues to advance. Fender, one of history's great guitar makers for the masses, is throwing their hat into the earbud ring with the FXA7 Pro Earphones. They aren't cheap; it'll cost you $500 to grab a pair of these bad boys. But what you'll get is a top of the line pair of buds that sound absolutely incredible.

Fender scanned thousands of ears and then used those scans to create 3D-printed housings. The result is a pair of earbuds that feel perfectly at home in your ears, like they were made specifically for you.

They've got individual tweeters and subs and drivers for each, which results in a clean and gorgeous sound that rivals any headphones we've tested thus far.

The FXA7 Pro's come with interchangeable tips to make them more comfortable in your ear, plus a detachable cable and cleaning tool to help you keep them in tip-top shape.

If you're the kind of music lover that needs the absolute best-sounding music in your ear, give these a chance.
