A set of supersized headphones has been stolen from a Metro Transit bus shelter in Halifax.

The headphones — measuring 1.5 metres high and 1.5 metres wide — had been put over a bus shelter near the corner of South Street and Tower Road as part of a Dairy Farmers of Canada campaign advertising free workout music.

A spokeswoman for the Dairy Farmers of Canada told CBC News the headphones are worth $12,000.

Because of the size of the headphones, Halifax Regional Police say they believe two or more people are responsible for the deed.

The theft was reported by a passerby and is believed to have happened sometime between the end of May and the first week of June.
