The ES-FC300 headphones will be available at retail later this summer for $149 and come in three striking finishes: black with a red cable, white with a white cable, and violet with a violet cable. Music fans will be able to demo the black ES-FC300s before they hit shelves at listening stations inside the Spotify tent at over 35 U.S. dates of the Vans Warped Tour this summer.

Spotify is the official, exclusive media partner for Vans Warped Tour 2013.

The entire personal audio experience will be powered by Onkyo’s ES-FC300 on-ear headphones.
