Our favorite Thimblepress products:
Want some sweet headphones like us? We have the Regent headphones from Sudio Sweden and we LOVE them! The Regent is their premium on-ear model, with impeccable clarity in the instrumental tones and well balanced sound. With 24+ hours of active battery life, and 20 days of standby life, the Regent is the perfect companion for you at home or on the go. It will connect to any device that has Bluetooth, but there is also an auxiliary cord if you don’t want to use the wireless option. You can also personalize your Regent interchangeable caps, such as white or black marble designs. SO COOL! The combination of high polished metal and matte surfaces embodies the vision of Scandinavian design. Seriously, Rebels! These are so good! AND for the month of October, Sudio Sweden is donating 10% of their profits on all our pink products to the Pink Ribbon Foundation in Sweden.
