In the visual for “Sandcastles,” Bey is shown wearing a pair of Pryma headphones. Although they appear somewhat modest, the headphones are actually pretty extravagant. In addition to their $549 price tag, they’re also made of premium leather, aluminum, and lots of style.
After putting them to the test, we’re convinced: there’s just no better way to listen to new music. Although they aren’t soundproof, these headphones effectively mute background noise, allowing you to completely immerse yourself in Lemonade.
And there’s the comfort factor, which (we all know) is often compromised for a fashionable look. Fortunately, I experienced no discomfort while listening to Lemonade in its entirety with Pryma. The cushions are similar to snug pillows that hug your ears tightly for an optimal listening experience.
(Let’s be real – this wouldn’t be the case with Beats, or those $9,000 Dolce & Gabbana headphones worn by Rihanna. After all, the crown was fly, but it didn’t look all that comfortable.)
And when you’re dropping a substantial amount of cash on a product, its durability is imperative. The premium leather is durable enough to withstand minor bumps and scrapes, without showing any signs of wear or tear.
With the purchase of the headphones, you’ll also be getting a free three-month trial for TIDAL. So, Bey’s choice to rock the ‘phones make a little more sense now. Still, are they worth $549? That all comes down to the size of your pockets.
After our test-run, we can confidently say you won’t be disappointed.
