Rounded forms make up the majority of headsets and their components, but the iHear Headphones attempt to assume a more rigid shape wherever possible. The cushioned ear speakers have acquired corners and the vertical braces have become rigid, giving the music-listening accessory an unusual rectangular side profile. Only the overarching head band maintains a strict semicircular curve.
The hard angles of the sleek peripheral may not have suited the smooth-edged iPhone 3G, but they do complement the boxiness of the iPhone 4 quite well. Creator Edward Battistini has deliberately designed this device to blend in with the aesthetic of Apple electronics. The iHear Headphones are manufactured from a streamlined aluminum body with ABS and leather parts, and intelligently integrated with VoiceOver compatibility.
