Appearance

The Designer Headphones are a pair of very stylish headphones. The sides and top are the same color as the wearer's ink, but fade to a yellow-orange at the front regardless of ink color. On both earpieces is a circular design that also changes color based on ink, but not to match - it is generally a complementary color or close to it.
