These Nintendo Famicom earbuds are a new offering from Datel Japan, which will delight old school gamers. The 'Retro 2 Con Earphone Mic' set includes a cable extender, an in-line mic and detachable earbuds that reference the design and distinct coloring of the retro Nintendo gaming system.

The introduction of the Retro 2 Con Earphone Microphone takes advantage of the nostalgia factor and Japan's love for retro-style gaming hardware. The microphone on the actual Nintendo Famicom controller was only around for a short period of time before it was removed, so this design will truly elate gamer geeks who catch this reference.

The Datel Japan earbuds are set for release on April 30th, but pre-orders are now available and will retail for about $19.
