Concept headphones with mounted LEDs display custom visualizations of whatever music is playing.

We’ve all had the experience of walking down the street, listening to something on headphones and thinking, “I wish everyone around me could know how great this song is and how cool I am for listening to it.” If not that exactly, then at least something along the lines of wanting to share what you like.

Well, designers ChanHyun Park & SeJi Kim have created headphones that show a visualization of what you’re listening to on an OLED display. More artistic than just showing song title and artist, these concept headphones can show dynamic color sequences, light waves, pulsing flares and other visual elements timed to music.

They’re like a little iTunes visualizer on your head, and are only in the concept phase. If produced they would bring headphone bling to the next level. It would be pretty interesting to see a subway car full of people using these, each with different songs playing.
