The Evolution of Headphones

The Evolution of Headphones

VOLVE Headphones merge innovative operation, minimalistic character & high-end technology to blur the boundaries between music and mind. Sure, they’re sleek and stylish, but what sets them apart is the transfer of play/volume functionality directly to the headphone from the MP3 player or other Samsung device. Volume can be adjusted by simply turning a rubber disc situated on the ear cups & play or pause is activated by a single push on the centerpiece, making them as intuitive to use as they are beautiful to look at.

Musical Ears

EarPlay is a set of headphones that integrate an MP3 player into the body. Ot imports music in through the 3.5mm jack or USB ports. Essentially it negates the use of an iPod or its clan. The jacks on the device can be an input as well as output, giving you the freedom to hook up the device to a speaker as well. It even allows you to share music to other headphones.

Music Everywhere

Music Everywhere

Although earbuds are very convenient when on the go, somehow I prefer not to wear them while driving or riding my bike. I get the feel that blocking out essential noises, especially when cycling can be detrimental. Something like this Portable Speaker Design for Cycles is what I’d love to use instead. They look sleek and have an easy way to fit in. Love their simple looks and easy access to controls. Way to go!

Visual Headphones

Visual Headphones

Keeping with the late trend of bold headphone designs, the Amazing Headphone features an added visual element on one side. Now the music can be “seen” by others through a full-color display that can be customized to the user’s liking. A color spectrum sound graph, light wave, and sequenced flares are just a few of the options that will move to the sound of your jams.

Headphones You Can Sleep In

Finally- a headphone design so comfy you’ll barely feel them! The REM headphones feature an elongated shape that disperses pressure along the outer ear and can be custom fitted instantaneously by squeeze-pumping air into each soft, silicon piece. Even the squishy cord was designed to let the user wear the phones in comfort for extended amounts of time without soreness.

Audio Globe

Audio Globe

Designed to rotate on a 23.4 degree slanted axis like the globe, DORA CD Player grabs your attention with its clever gimmick design. This could have been another drab rectangular gadget, meant to seduce you with textures and colors, but thankfully it isn’t! The CD loads into the back panel, while the speakers are placed in the front. I love the catchy remote that accompanies this player; spin my world right round, like a record…..
