Retailer dangles earring headphones
If you wear the same tatty earrings day-in day-out, then perhaps now’s the time to change them. Because Thanko’s launched a range of lug-wear inspired headphones.
Thanko's cans clip onto your earlobe
The quirky Japanese retailer’s cans simply clip onto your earlobe and blast music into your eardrum from a small speaker on either side.
What's your style?
great design feature is that the covers over each headphone are available in a selection of stylish covers. For example, one style will look like you’ve got a pair of tiny footballs hanging from your earlobes, while the skull and crossbones design is best left to Metallica fans.
The headphones come with a 1.3m long cable and 3.5mm jack for connection into your MP3 player. A second design’s also available with a microphone built into the cord, allowing you to make hands-free mobile phone calls.
Thanko’s wacky cans are available online now for ¥1980 (£10/$19/€12)
Not just sound isolation
There will be no bass at all either - this will be tinniness exemplified.
I'm still waiting for...
... a Bluetooth headset that looks like the piece worn by Lt. Uhura.
For both the listener and the poor sufferers around him/her: nil.
