Are These Michael Jackson Headphones Sweet or Too Soon?

These sweet Michael Jackson 'Thriller' headphones were designed by Johnny Lighthands for the Nokia headset design competition--and they won. It's no wonder why, as the level of detail in these audio peripherals is nothing short of stunning.

Although the Nokia headset design competition ended late last year, these Michael Jackson 'Thriller' headphones have surged into popularity following the pop star's death. In terms of the circumstances in which this piece came across my desk, I can't help but wonder: Sweet, or too soon?
