Designed in Sweden

Representing high quality sound and function, products from VAIN are finished with a Swedish-inspired minimalistic design. Designed with a ‘less is more’ philosophy the quality is always outstanding. It is as much about the visual experience as about the physical experience through soft touch materials, gentle magnetic “clicks” and a smooth feeling when closing the tin.


Mathias and Michael, two brothers, grew up in Stockholm as local DJs with a passion for music. Michael studying engineering began to build loudspeakers, resulting in a small business. 30 years later, as experienced business partners, the brothers returned to the dreams of their childhood and a new business was born, combining passion for the perfect sound with the perfect design. VAIN STHLM strives to create headphones that you can take with you everywhere, without sacrificing sound quality.
