There are musicians, and then there's Quincy Jones. You might not have heard of him, but the track “We Are the World” will definitely ring a bell. Quincy Jones also has his own signature line of headphones now, which we checked out.

The Q460 has a very sleek look, especially the white with black ear pads and leather cushion at the top, and provides you a comfortable feel for long-time usage. The sides are extendable to fit the size of your head, and they go up to a good length. They don’t weigh a ton either, so you can carry them around without straining your neck.

Hey, good looking

The wire is thin at a length of 2m. One thing that I liked about the wire was that it was detachable, which means that you bundle the wire, fold the headphones (yes, it folds from the sides) put it in the case that comes along with, and you have a perfect traveling partner! Of course, there are risks that come with it being detachable. What if there's a sudden tug to the wire and it comes off? That is prevented by the fact that you can lock the end of the wire going to the headphones securely. There’s also a small volume control which doubles up as a microphone. The design on the whole is quite appealing to the eyes and easy to carry.
