Internet comedian Kerwin Frost has become one of streetwear’s hottest collaborators, mostly thanks to his bizarre designs. Between her furry Adidas tracksuit and her Muppet sneakers, Frost has always caught the eye (or resentment) of street style enthusiasts.
His latest venture with Beats, while slightly less lavish, only continues his ridiculous aesthetic. Following a friends and family outing of “Furry” Beats Pros, Kerwin presents “Cosmophones”, a space-inspired version of the Beats Studio3 Wireless headphones. Done in dark navy blue, the on-ear headphones are decorated with star patterns and a distorted image of Kerwin’s face wrapped around the headband. Planet Earth and Saturn graphics adorn the Beats logos, while Kerwin Frost branding sits above the earmuffs.
Fun Design, Deluxe Sound — Despite their unusual design, you’ll find that the Cosmophones feature the same technical features as the original Beats Studio3 wireless headphones. Along with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), the accessories boast 22-hour battery life and rugged construction, meaning you can bring their rich sound field just about anywhere. Class 1 Bluetooth and an Apple W1 chip help improve said sound field, while improved microphones come in handy for phone calls. Fast charging and of course the starry design from Kerwin make the Cosmophones even more appealing.
With a retail price of $350 – the same price as the original Beats Studio3 wireless headphones – the Cosmophones come with a matching Kerwin-branded case and glow-in-the-dark sticker pack. Limited stock of the space-inspired set will be available April 1 at 12 p.m. ET, arriving on the SSENSE and Frost website.
Major commercialization — The collaborative outing accompanies Frost’s first step into the metaverse: on launch day of his Cosmophones, the comedian is set to host a “Dunking Simulator” quest on Roblox. Players who complete the quest can wear the Cosmophones anywhere in the Roblox universe.
Kerwin has also created music inspired by his collaboration with Beats, which can be heard on Apple Music’s Kerwin Frost radio on April 3. Musicians Eddie Chacon and Thundercat star in the Cosmophones campaign, appearing in a galactic video that sees them experimenting with a pair of headphones in space. Frost seems to believe his headphones are out of this world – and there’s only one way to find out if he’s right.
