BudBuds, for best buds only

Totally bizzare

Remote control for virtualized desktops

Music brings people together, it’s claimed. So what better way to share music with your closest buddy than a pair of earphones fitted with two extra earbuds.

On the back of each BudBud earphone is a second earbud which rests in a small support bracket until it’s needed, giving you four earbuds in total. So when your bud says: “Hey bud, can I listen to your music?”, you can respond with, “Sure thing bud, just grab holds of my extra buds.”

BudBuds: share music with your buddy

The disadvantage is that when you’re alone the headphones will make it look as though you’ve got an earbud poking out of your ear.

All four buds connect into a control pod, from which a single 3.5mm jack cable emanates. Each earbud has a 13mm "full-dynamic range" driver, S1 said, and a frequency range of between 20Hz and 20kHz.

Alas, we haven’t heard of a launch date or price for S1’s BudBuds yet.
