Picking a pair of headphones usually consists of having to make the choice between on-ear designs and earbuds, but the conceptual 'Iris' headphones look to change this. Featuring an on-ear design that doesn't have a headband, the headphones allow you to simply swipe up on the side of the ear cup to open the exterior section of the unit to hear those around you. This eliminates the need to fully remove the device from your ear to increase overall efficiency and ensure quick conversations or interactions are as such as well.
The conceptual 'Iris' headphones are the design work of Mauricio Carvajal and Susana Restrepo, and identify the need for more fluid technology products as consumers continue to integrate them deeper into their lifestyle.
