I love seeing the folks of Inspire to Make do their thing because they take small little objects and creatively turn them into something else entirely. First they transformed a nail into a tiny sword and now they've done the always popular DIY project of turning a bullet into a pair of headphones.
The timelapse of an untouched pair of headphones pretty much goes exactly like this comic. You set them aside totally mindful of the cables, carefully keeping them from each other. You ignore them until you need them again. And then when you pick them up, they're a tangled mess. Every. Single. Time.
The product engineers at Pioneer know what it's like to pull out an ear bud and find it caked with sticky, gross ear wax. Rather than clean the earphones with your shirt, Pioneer wants you to throw them in your washing machine.
Super-mega luxury electronics purveyor Bang & Olufsen has a new headphone set out—and it's got an i-suffix, so you know who they're trying to grab! The EarSet 3is have a microphone, phone/volume controls, and are moderately shiny.
In-ear earbuds are everywhere, hell, I'm using them right now. But they're not ideal because they trigger a natural defense mechanism in your ears that tenses up your ear muscles and dampens the sound by as much as 50 dB.
If you've ever shared a pair of headphones you know it's extremely uncomfortable, but now with the Zumreed X2 Hybrids you can enable its speaker mode and listen with a friend comfortably.
Designed by DJs for DJs, Aiaiai's TMA-1 rugged headphones have all of the bass and sensitivity needed to be heard in a club, without the overt branding. And for non-turntablists, they work very well on the road too.
Those cheap earphones you keep buying year after year? The ones with the cool designs? They all kinda sound the same, huh? There's a pretty good reason for that: They actually are all the same earphones.
Hoodies have strings around the neck, right? Have you EVER used those strings? Why you'd want to tighten a noose around your neck, I'll never know. The HoodieBuddie cleverly replaces the strings with earbuds; the pocket contains a 3.5mm jack.
Not quite a headphone, which sits on top of your ear, and not quite an earbud which burrows into your canal, these Medis 'phones clip onto your ear in a way you would never guess:
There are songs that make me want to shoot myself and then there are songs that make me want to stick bullet casings in my ears. 18K gold 9mm bullet casing earphones, that is.
Buy these headphones, and they'll last your whole life. Or so Sleek Audio claims—but at $400, you'd hope they'd last longer than your last pair of Sennheisers at least.
I've successfully removed my Ultimate Ears MetroFi 220 earphones thousands of times in the few months I've had them. Today, however, I botched the operation.
Thinksound's Rain and slightly bassier Thunder earphones are made out of wood. That's their thing, but it's not the best thing about them. The best thing about them is that they're damn nice earbuds, for a reasonable price.
