76 Types of Sonic Headgear

Fashionable Headphones, from Transformer Earbuds to Underwater Headphon

— May 19, 2010 — Tech
Once upon a time, headphones were clunky, oversized and unfashionable. When Apple first came out with all-white earbuds, everyone went crazy, and ever since then, the trend of fashionable headphones and earphones has snowballed.

Whether it's zipper, wood or psychedelic headphones, there's no denying this popular fashion statement. Click through this collection of fashionable headphones and earbuds to inspire your next sonic headgear purchase.

Implications - In today's society, many individuals place a huge emphasis on being able to express their unique individuality amongst their peers. For these consumers, a product is only worthy of their investment if it allows them to distinguish themselves from others. Businesses that are able to provide such consumers with simple and everyday products to express themselves will see big returns.
