Celebrities designing headphones these days is the fashionable thing to do, it seems. A while ago it was perfumes, but now it’s headphones. Go figure. In any case, the SMS Audio ‘STREET by 50′ headphones from rapper 50 Cent are as fashionable and high-quality as they come. Made from shatterproof UFP™ plastic, the cans feature a detachable tangle-free cord (with three-click microphone), a professionally-tuned 40mm driver, enhanced bass, and a foldable headband. They normally would set you back $179, but today it’s $109 after the $70 rebate.

Cat Ear Headphones Are A Thing Now

cat-ear-headphones-2

We have a sneaking suspicion that Axent Wear’s new Cat Ear Heaphones will find a strong market mostly in Japan. But they’re sure as heck intriguing enough to get us talking about them on this side of the pond. Although really, there’s not much to say about them. The cat ears are actually speakers that can blast your music outwards. There are LEDs throughout to accent the design, and thankfully both the cat ears and LEDs can be turned off if you don’t feel like being obnoxious at any given time. And that’s it. It’s a $150 pledge on Indiegogo, which includes shipping, taxes and import duties worldwide.

Gastropods for Your iPod: Snail and Slug Earbuds

Snail & Slug Earbuds

If snails and slugs don’t bother you, then you might find these earbuds pretty neat. But if you get easily spooked by bugs and cringe at the thought of gastropods like snails and slugs, then you might want to steer clear of these. The Snail and Slug earbuds could be your worst fears realized: snails and slugs crawling up your neck and into your ears, and there’s nothing you can do about it…

Far from being a nightmare, these earbuds actually exist and they will no doubt elicit a second look from most people who see you using it.

These Headphones Will Mess With Your Head

reverse_610x288

The nice thing about art is that is often makes ‘why’ irrelevant. Granted, sometimes the artist will pay lip service for why he’s done this or that, but art is supposed to evoke emotions within you. Looking at the above Reverse Listening Device, we can’t help but think “WTF is that”, which we’d immediately qualify as effective art. Even briefly delving into the “why” of the thing sort of takes away from its beauty. But in the interest of sound reporting (something we’re definitely known for), the above is the creation of UK artist Dominic Wilcox, who wanted to create a display at Selfridges department store in London as part of an exhibition called the “Festival of Imagination.” It’s called “Variations On Normal”, and is simply a set of headphones that take sounds coming from the left and funnel them to your right ear, and vice versa. The sensation of wearing it is described as “very strange”. Artists are known to give enlightening descriptions.

No, no, this isn’t going to be made into a real product. We’d still like to give it a listen though.

Flip Headphones Cost Money, The Fist To Your Face Is Free

flip

These have been out for a bit, but new headphones come out every other day so you’ll have to forgive us for not having noticed. And we’re only discussing the Flip headphones now because, well, we hate them and feel like ranting. The gimmick here is that in normal listening mode they’re just another pair of headphones, but flip them around and they become a pair of speakers. Yeah, they’re specifically designed so you can walk around with your music blaring around your neck, gracing your surroundings with your undoubtedly wonderful taste in music… These are the headphones that allow you to be ‘that guy’ that everyone at the bus stop just wants to punch, but is too civilized to do so. Unlike you. You… you aren’t like most people, you need attention because maybe your parents didn’t love you enough as a child. We don’t know, but if we see you wearing some Flips, we’re going to… really glare at you.

They’re $120. Now if you don’t believe us about how awful an idea this is, watch the below video and see if it isn’t the most cringe worthy minute you’ve ever seen.

Paperclip Headphones: Getting Clippy With It

Paperclip Headphone

Headphones and portable music players let you take your music with you anywhere you want to, and that’s all good. But one problem I frequently encounter is earphones getting tangled in my hair (I honestly don’t understand how that happens sometimes) or on my shirt buttons or on the strap of my sling bag.

Headphones with clips were eventually released to solve that problem, but none of them are as ingenious as these Paperclip Headphones. The paperclip portion is hollow, so you can slide it up and down into position. The best part is that you can use the paperclip to ‘clip’ the cords in place so they don’t get in your way. Whether you’re working, surfing the web, or out jogging, the Paperclip Headphones will keep the cords in order so you won’t have to deal with a tangled mess.
