Iron Maiden and Onkyo Roll Out Maiden Audio Headphones

Iron Maiden and Onkyo Roll Out Maiden Audio Headphones
Forget running to the hills, Iron Maiden fans may soon be running to stores to pick up a pair of the band and electronics company Onkyo's new "Maiden Audio" headphones.

The partnership's product was officially unveiled yesterday (January 8) at Las Vegas' annual Consumer Electronics Show, with a gigantic statue of band mascot Eddie brought out to model the wares. As you can see up above, a cyborg version of Eddie, previously seen on the cover of the band's 1986 LP Somewhere in Time, has the headphones stretched across his flesh- and circuit-covered dome.

Fans may question why said undead creature would be wearing an extra set of cans since he clearly already has a pair grafted onto his skull, but the modelling job may well be insinuating that the Onkyo-approved technology is far superior to the freak of nature's '80s-era audio expectations.

The specs behind the "Maiden Audio" headphones have yet to be revealed, though the details are expected to arrive sometime between February and March.
