Headphones Meant Not to Filter out Background Noise

As oil reaches recording break highs, more and more people are turning to bikes to get them around and of course nobody wants to leave behind creature comforts like music while driving. Problem is most of today’s headphones are designed to filter out background noise. That’s not very safe for a bicyclists since hearing what’s coming is important. The Semicircle headphones are designed to fit in your ear without blocking background noise.

The unit is wireless with a bluetooth module that connects to a standard headphone jack. Riding your bike, saving the Earth, saving money, and enjoying music while doing it shouldn’t be a hazard. Nice concept.

  • Why are all concept design pieces described in hilariously broken engrish?

    Also, if you want to hear outside noise, get yourself some Koss Portapros. They are also more comfortable than that weird doughnut thing that I'm supposed to love long time.

    I wear Portapros when I ride my bike. Bass sounds amazing, and I can still hear outside noise… they are also like 25 bucks. CHEEEEAP!

  • “oil reaches recording break highs” – absolute love the English! Funky looking headphones at first glance, yet they wouldn’t fit well? Nice design mind. Some amusing comments about them!

    I am not agree with this… extremely dangerous while driving… even if it doesn’t filter background sound! It will distract person’s mind while driving… like same as, using a cell phone while driving is not permitted! Learn some driving ethics!

  • I'd still prefer something that filters out outside noise so I could enjoy my music more.
