As a promotion, Nokia held a design competition recently encouraging designers to conceive headphones based on their favorite music. The photo above is called the ‘I’m Flying' headset which was design by Rodshakur and inspired by R Kelly’s track I Believe I Can Fly. Creative Review have some photos of other entries here.

We do have a problem with the competition though. The ad agency, Wieden+Kennedy seem to have been a little underhand. One of the winners (below) is a freelance designer that works for W+K London. Dodgy, no? Oh, and there's a handy link in the comments of the Creative Review post to the blog that describes how he made this set inspired by Thriller. Dodgy-dodgy, no??
