One of the most important pieces of the gun safety picture is the idea that not all people should be allowed to own whatever firearms they wish.

Of course, this makes perfect sense when you think about violent criminals with a history of offenses, or those with a mental illness that could make owning such a powerful weapon an unnecessary risk to themselves and those who surround them.

Furthermore, there are illicit, illegal firearms that sometimes find their way into the dark corners of society, some traceable, others not, that may need to be removed from circulation in order to maintain a healthy gun culture around the world.

When these guns are taken off of the streets, they are often simply destroyed; melted down or pulverized beyond function.

Now, a company in Sweden is making use of the materials left behind in order to make high quality headphones.

“YEVO Labs introduced a pair of bluetooth headphones recycled from guns at the electronics industry’s biggest trade show last week.

“The Swedish company partnered with Humanium Metal to redesign its flagship headphones — the YEVO 1 — with accents of the former guns, including fashioning a charging case from the recycled metal.

“’In a way, this is the most valuable material in the world,’ Andreas Vural, YEVO’s founder and president, told CNET. ‘It’s a firearm that may have taken someone’s life.’”

Even more impressive, however, is YEVO’s commitment to the people affected as opposed to just the profits projected.

“Vural premiered the headphones at CES, former the International Consumer Electronics Show, in Las Vegas last week. Half of the product’s proceeds will support ‘victims and projects aiming to rebuild conflict-torn societies affected by illegal weapon violence.'”

The headphones themselves look awfully slick, and are made with some of the world’s most impressive components, outside of the gun metal, of course.

Looking to snag yourself a pair?  Well you had better start saving up.  One pair of the YEVO headphones will set you back a whopping $499.
