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?

One 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)
