As you know, here on A Gentleman’s Row we champion minimalist design and great craftsmanship. Often when searching for headphones to wear on your commute, men are faced with giant monstrosities that just aren’t practical. What I look for in my tech accessories is great quality without the need for over-the-top design. Tech should integrate seamlessly with a man’s everyday life and that includes his wardrobe.

Here we bring you some of the best minimalist headphones available on the market today.
