Phillips and O’Neill have partnered to up to create the world’s strongest headphones, and after two years have released their finished product.

Yet, “THE CRASH” doesn’t sacrifice on audio quality though.  It still has pro-level speakers encased in metal that will withstand whatever you throw at it.
