The setup is pretty simple to achieve. The headphones are on a black backdrop. I used a nylon string to hang them in an angle. One strobe with a softbox on camera right plus one full white diffuser to soften the light even more. I then used a flag to stop the light from hitting the backdrop and a mirror to bounce back the light on the shadow side of the headphones. Here's a visual diagram of the setup:
And that's it! If you have some suggestions, tips and tricks to improve the result, let me know in the comments below!
