Hear Ye, Hear Ye: Quincy Jones–Inspired Headphones

The AKG N90Q customizes sound according to its wearer's aural anatomy.

Inspired and codesigned by Grammy Award–winner Quincy Jones, the AKG N90Q headphones are the last word in customizing sound for your ears. Two tiny microphones send a test signal that maps the individual anatomy of your inner ear and that data is used to calibrate your music for maximum enjoyment. It doesn't come cheap, but "Soul Bossa Nova" has never sounded as good. $1,500; us.akg.com.
