Headphones can do a lot more than cancel noise, provide epic entertainment or even keep overly-friendly people from talking to you on a flight. They’re a great fashion statement, and there’s so much more to them than the classic over-sized black, bulky look or sleek white ear-buds. The choices of headphones are nearly endless, so why settle for another drab pair? You don’t need to sacrifice quality to make a fashion statement.
The Question Mark Headphones are delicately stylish, just like the perfect love knot necklace. They fit easily into your ears, but can also latch together to be worn as a necklace. There are no more tangles, no more unraveling cords and your entertainment can easily be slipped on and off. For those who want something a little more astounding, here’s a look at some of the most incredible headphones on the market today.
Semicircles and Zippers
The semicircle is the exact opposite of a noise-canceling headphone and comes in a sleek, futuristic design. It’s created so you can still hear background noise, which is sometimes a requirement — after all, a parent who needs to hear a crying baby or a worker who can’t completely shut herself out of the office needs to strike a balance. This headphone is wireless and is equipped with Bluetooth, making it the natural choice for busy telecommuters.
On the other hand, a zip-up headphone easily doubles as a unisex necklace and is designed to keep tangles at bay. You can zip it up as tightly or loosely as you like, and simply toss it around your neck when it’s not in use. It’s small, discreet and truly solves the ongoing problem of de-tangling headphones every time you want to use your iPod. The question isn’t why wasn’t this thought of sooner, but why aren’t more people using it?
It’s About the Bling
These headphones are useful and innovative, but what if you just want to catch everyone’s eye? Choose a yellow gold option featuring 18 grams of gold and 118 miniature diamonds. Are they headphones or earrings? Nobody can really tell, and surprisingly the quality from this blinged-out option isn’t too shabby, either.
For something more affordable, designer Illya Freeman has created the headset earrings, which operates just like a clip-on earring. Obviously, this means noise isn’t canceled, so it might be a better option for chatting on the phone or for folks who need to hear background noise. It’s stylish and goes with anything without being overtly feminine.
Not Just for the Ears
If you want something really out there, Alkin Bacioghu has created headphones that attach to the tips of glasses (where glasses normally hook behind your ears). Consider it the precursor to Google Glass, but with a much more affordable price tag. Similar to hosted PBX, there really is something out there for everyone, whether they’re low maintenance or only want the best.
Think twice before picking up another pair of Skull Candy earbuds at the store. Can’t you do better? A little research will reveal the perfect headphones for you.
