We’re all for MADE IN THE USA, MADE IN USA or MADE IN AMERICA because we love supporting the little brands at home, but there are also plenty of talented craftsman in other parts of the world that are a gung-ho as we are about designing, engineering, finishing and assembling their products in house. British audio outfit BLOC & ROC is one of those brands. The challenger for the mid-price, high-quality headphone title has been developing their debut release, Galvanize, for two years. The two distinct designs, S1 and S2, both have speaker chambers crafted from a single piece of British 6082 aerospace-grade aluminum, 40mm bespoke neodymium drivers, fabric cables and gold-plated connectors. Black, red and grey are the standard color options for the anodizing, but they’re also available in 24K gold plate if you’re feeling a little more lavish. Available now HERE.
