100 Ingenious Earbuds

From Gangster Headphones to Golden Earphones, These Appeal to Variety

— May 14, 2012 — Tech
Music lovers and the fashion-savvy join forces to create a beautiful array of ingenious earbuds. For those who prefer not to dawn the bulky headphones, earbuds are not only the comfortable alternative but can also be a stylish accessory.

Whether your a candy fanatic, Sci-Fi guru or eco-conscious music listener, there is a set of earbuds that will match your personality and style. For those who are more concerned with efficiency rather than appearance the Custom-Modeled Earphones adapts to the shape of one's ear to ensure that they are comfortable and stay put.

However, if you'd prefer to make a loud statement with your musical accessories the Funky Neon Earphones and Gangster Earbuds are perfect examples of headsets geared towards the various types of music lovers.
