Transition / Headphones


The concept lets the users adapt their listening habits and commuting situation by transforming earphones to headphones. The user gets the possibility to listen to earphones when walking or bicycling without isolating ambient sound and the headphones offers a focused, isolated sound experience when in public transport. When not in use the user can easily fold the headphones together and store them secure without damaging the product. The earphones are easily put into the headphones with a magnet. Since the headphones uses Piezoelectric to create sound waves, the sound will not be affected by the magnets in the earphones.
