One day, some people sat around a table trying to come up with a name for their new product. And they all decided on Ear Vibe, and thought it was a good idea.

And the products they attached this beautifully horrible name to? Vibrating fucking headphones. Yes, these bad boys will vibrate to the music inside your ears. Sounds terrible!

Did you actually TRY them?

I'm not saying that I don't agree that intuitively it sounds weird...

...but there should be a flag that goes off when a company has developed a product, passed through all those hands, then R&D, passed testing, investor approval, manufacturer approval, more testing, more investor approval to bring them to CES...

That's a LOT of people to not at least ask yourself the question

"Am I in the minority here?"

"What do they have that I don't?"


Maybe all the above people had the same knee-jerk response.

It could be a subtle vibration - you do know that bottom-octave notes are felt more than heard, right? In that respect...

[*]if implemented properly[*] ...could be good.
