Sprout / Earphones


Sometimes when one of the earphones is broken, We often abandon the entire set. However, it cause a big waste. Sprout headset has the following characteristics:1.It has a distributor, which respectively provide a jack for each earphone. Thus if an earphone is broken, user only need to replace the broken one and the device can continue to be used.2.Every jack can also be inserted by another pair of headsets so that more people can share music.3.There is a small sign on the surface of each Jack and earphone which is either convex or concave. In this way, users can distinguish between left and right by only touching the surface of them.
