Although listening to music out loud in public seems to be a big thing with the tween generation right now, to the annoyance of those in older generations, the Sinus Turntable headphones may offer a happy compromise between the two. A dual-purpose headphone set, it offers the choice of listening to one's music privately or turning them into portable speakers for everyone to enjoy (or not enjoy).

Designed by Tino Klaehne, the Sinus Turntable headphones are rather ingenious -- not to mention sleek and stylish to boot. According to Yanko Design, the dished ear cup acts as a control dial, which converts the headphones into a set of speakers. Perfect for traveling or even while lounging in the backyard, would be convenient to have on hand. Stats for Dual-Purpose Headphones Trending: Older & Mild
