Hitler brand headphones appeared on the web store Massdrop.com on Monday offering customers "the final solution to the audio question."

Massdrop.com is an online community where users discuss items they are interested in purchasing. If a product receives enough attention through a poll started by a community member, the website managers will arrange for a "drop," a bulk purchase of the product that can drastically reduce the prices. The more people who commit to purchasing the product, the lower the price drops.

The latest featured product to show up for purchase polling on the site was "Klangs" by Hitler, a headphones set in the same style as "Beats" by Dre produced by Beats Electronics. In place of the brand's symbol "B" on the red over-ear headphone, the product featured a swastika.

The Klangs, a word in German meaning sound, have been listed in several polls for voting by community members including "Best celebrity-endorsed headphones" and "Best noise cancelling headphones."
