Contrary to popular belief, Crave doesn't hate every attempt to adorn gadgets and their accessories. It's true that the fashion gremlins have been hard at work spreading their atrocious taste to headsets, for example, but every once in awhile they miss one--and the result is something as beautifully designed as Jabra's JX10 Bluetooth line.

Thankfully, the company exercised sufficient self-restraint with its luxury versions, which Luxurylaunches says come in 24k gold plate and stainless steel. Of course, once we learned that the headset was the work of a former Bang & Olufsen designer, it all made sense.
