55DSL has come up with an unlikely, yet strangely appropriate, collaboration with Swedish fashion headphone manufacturer Zound Industries to create a limited-edition set called "Ghetto Blasts". Unlikely, because who would think to mix apparel with electronics —at least in a way that works. Appropriate because of the brand's action sports, streetwear roots. The headphones are stamped with DSL55 logos and images and designed in the brand's signature colors.

And guess who snagged a pair? Yep, yours truly. And yes, I will be rocking them. And yes, I will be joining the new crop of anti-earbuds hipsters. And yes, I will be cool again! Merry Christmas to me!
