99 Hip Headphone Designs

From Stethoscope Ear Buds to Knitted Headsets

— January 26, 2012 — Tech
It's no longer necessary to compromise style for function when it comes to headphone designs. Designer headphones are everywhere, and more consumers are ready to ditch the white ear buds they got for free with their iPod for a sparkling pair of professional-level headsets.

In addition to the vast number of hip hop-branded headphone designs on the market, from Beats by Dre to Chambers by RZA, it's very likely you'll be able to find the right pair for you, even if that right pair is a $2,500 pair of Swarovski crystal-encrusted ear buds. Sci-fi fans can also find a variety of headphone designs with Storm Trooper headsets and earphone-covering Princess Leia-inspired sheaths. For the medically inclined, there is a pair of stethoscope ear buds that will have your heart racing, and a pair of headphone goggles for the avid snowboarder.
