The Dual-Mode Headphones are a great idea for those who like to listen to music while they're out walking around or exercising. Perhaps a fast beat keeps you moving quickly, and certain tracks distract you from fatigue and pain. For whatever reason you might prefer this setup, it can be detrimental to your safety outdoors. This innovative earphone concept helps you stay in-tune with your surroundings.
Designed by Yeom Ilsoo, Lee Nari and Choi Eunji for LG Electronics, this 2013 Red Dot Design Award winner is a complete headset with auxiliary earbuds. When you're out jogging, it's best if you play your audio through the open sound system, enabling you to hear vehicles and pedestrians around you. On the train, however, the Dual-Mode Headphones are best switched into privacy mode, in which you wear the plugs.
