It’s difficult to plot the exact moment in time when the Airpods went from tech accessories to a fashion statement and status symbol. The ridicule was replaced by mass-acceptance so fast it’s almost impossible to know when or how it happened, but the Airpods successfully managed to become the Apple-user’s fashion statement. Ayush Singh Patel’s OnePlus Bullet truly wireless earphones attempt something similar for the Asian brand.
Rather than be confined in a case, where they hide from view, these conceptual earphones sit around your neck, magnetically attached to a chain, giving the earbuds a more fashion-forward approach in a rather direct sense (almost looking like pendants or dog-tags). Each earphone comes with its own sleeve that covers the silicone tip, preventing it from falling off or worse, getting dirty… and while the earphones don’t charge while they sit on the neck-chain, they do something else. Act as an intersection between tech and ornamentation, making them perhaps the most ultimate tech-fashion statement ever!
