Your smartphone needs a baseball cap

If you’ve got a smartphone with a headphone jack on the top and you need a bit more zazz, you really should check out the cuteness in the Line Cap. The folks at SUMNEEDS have brought on the “Line Cap”, part of a series of accessories called “Mobile Device is my friend.” It’s time to play dress-up!

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

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…..

New Bathtub Obsession

New Bathtub Obsession

I am going to assume that the Lotus is a Bluetooth speaker that syncs with your smartphones and devices, to provide sublime auditory satisfaction while taking a soak. Float it next to your yellow duck and simply take in the ripple sensations as they stir the water in rhythm to the beats of the music. Waterproof et al, the Lotus has in it the makings of a brilliant new bath toy! I want one now.

Spin Doctor

Spin Doctor

No relation to the band, but this groovy headphone is interactive and allows you to play with your music. It features a 4-axis-directional button on one side; this is to pick the samples available on the SD card. The other side features a rotatable part to scratch your MP3 on the go!

I’m a mobile DJ now!

Morning Raga

I can’t make up my mind about the Light Bulb Radio, I think it borders between cheesy and sleek and am unwilling to write it off so soon. What I like most is its clever designing and the way the radio + nightlight combo has been given a new vibe. The light bulb influence and simple user interface makes it even more appealing. What do you think?
