Master & Dynamic has partnered with Spotify to create a custom version of its MH40 headphones designed for fans of The Rolling Stones. The headphones feature the band's iconic lips logo on the earcups, and will initially only be available to Spotify Premium customers in the US and UK who are considered "superfans" of the band by the streaming service.

Superfans are "identified based on various indicators including length and depth of listening to an artist or band on Spotify," according to Master & Dynamic (If you play Exile on Main St once every few weeks you may not qualify). Those who qualify will be notified by email and receive a voucher code which will allow you to buy the headphones.

If you want to get your hands on these custom MH40 headphones (which will come with a free MP1000 headphone stand, which is nice) it's going to cost you $499, which is pricy considering the same headphones without the special branding are available on Amazon for $325.

If you receive a voucher, you can purchase the headphones today — for everyone else, there still may be a chance to get your hands on a pair. Master & Dynamic says it will make the headphones available to the public one week from today on July 13th, if there are any left. Only 1,962 pairs of the headphones have been made, matching the year The Rolling Stones were formed.
