Sein Woo is a Rhode Island design student who has developed headphones specifically for skateboarders. Woo's headphones are designed to be both functional and fashionable, allowing skaters to show off their personalities without compromising their ability to skate.
These headphones may look normal, but you can see what sets them apart from the pack upon closer inspection. The left earphone contains a small nob that can be used to switch songs, navigate through a playlist and increase/decrease volume. The headphone's cord is also retractable, making it easier to run the cord to your pocket, or to adjust it to fit an armband. Sein Woo's design comes in a a variety of colors, letting skaters match their headphones to their iPod or deck. Skateboarders are everywhere nowadays, but designers rarely create products specifically for them. These headphones have the potential to be a huge hit, should they ever go from concept to reality.
