Street Headphones Show Your Favorite Music in 3D

Street Headphones Show Your Favorite Music in 3D

We talk about headphones often on Unplggd and unfortunately they all usually end up looking very similar. Even more unfortunate &mdash the unique, "cool" looking headphones are usually of the worst quality. We'd love to say that these headphones would be different, but frankly, we have no idea.

We rarely say that we have 'no idea' on Unplggd, but, with a price tag of € 837.82 &mdash we're pretty sure we will never have an idea about these headphones.

The Street Headphone was picked up and is being sold by manufacturer Freedom of Creation and originally designed by Brian Garret. These headphones are custom made to reflect your favorite music &mdash in 3D. You submit your favorite band names while ordering and 10 weeks later you get some really awesome looking headphones &mdash that way everyone on the street knows how cool you are because you listen to Lady Gaga.

The Street Headphones are made from Laser Sintered Polyamide and Freedom of Creation does not offer any technical information in regards to sound quality. We're assuming these headphones would be more for display? We're just wondering what kind of person you'd have to be to spend € 837.82 on headphones just to have them sitting in a shadow box in your office (maybe Elton John?)

What do you think of the Street Headphones?
