The Low Fi Hi Tech Headphones is aptly named. Is it hi-tech in the obvious sense that the audio accessories are made to work with devices such as MP3 players and iPhones. It is lo-fi in regards to the materials used to create it and the process in which it is manufactured. Essentially, a person can 3D print his or her own pair if such a printer is readily available.

Designed by French designer JC Karich, the Low Fi Hi Tech Headphones is comprised of relatively simple parts including wire, tape, solder and magnets. While some people will find its capabilities surprising, others will be enamored with its overall look. The details are amazing, from the spiralling ear pieces to the fabric cord.
