New range of earphones each have their own unique design, including one which functions as a zip.

Fashion designer Marc Ecko has announced a new range of Ecko Unltd earphones that combine fashion and function. The six earbud styles will be available in stores next month. The “Zip” earbuds replace the traditional cord with a functioning zipper, removing the issue of cord tangles and providing a creative alternative for listening to your tunes. They are available in red, gold, blue, white, pink and purple, at a price of $29.99.

The other earbuds in the range include “Zone” ($12.99), “Chaos II” ($14.99), “Stomp” ($19.99), “Lace” ($24.99) which features a nylon shoelace-style cord, and “Chain” ($39.99) which features a beaded dog-tag chain cord design. All of the styles except for the basic “Zone” include an inline microphone and volume control compatible with iPods, iPhones, and Android smartphones.
