If you've been struggling to find the perfect headphones for listening to your MP3 copy of White Light / White Heat, Klipsch has you covered with the Signature Audio Edition Lou Reed X10i Headphones. The $399.99 earbuds feature a frequency response from 5Hz to 19kHz, a three-button remote compatible with Apple devices, and a "360-degree" microphone for phone calls. They're essentially a rebrand of Klipsch's $349.99 flagship Image X10i headphones, but for that extra $50 you'll be getting a purple casing with Reed's silk-screened signature, a collectible autograph card, and the knowledge that Dr. Dre and Lady Gaga aren't the only ones using their names to cash in on the headphone market.

The headphones will be available on December 10th — and the first 50 orders at Klipsch.com will also get a signed copy of Lulu, Reed's recent collaboration with Metallica. So you might want to wait a beat before buying.
