Pop-Out Headphones Let You Share Music Between The Pair
A new concept design uses wireless technology to let you listen to the same song with two sets of hardware.
Wearing headphones is traditionally a singular experience. We put on our headphones, immerse ourselves in the music and effectively cut ourselves off from the rest of the world. Listening to music, however, is not essentially a cloistering experience. In our socially mediated digital era, it is something to be shared rather than kept private.
In a concept designed by Roel Denden users can share music with each other through a set of headphones that can separate into two pairs. Twin Headphones, use wireless technology to broadcast the same music to both the wearers when they are in proximity to each other. As opposed to a concert–which is a more communal experience –the separable headphones create an immersive environment where friends or strangers can connect through the immediate act of sharing a song or artist.
