SWITCH / earphone

SWITCH
SWITCH

SWITCH is a concept about earphone which is able to connect with several devices simultaneously. This concept comes from circumstances of South Korea, where most people usually use 2 or 3 devices. They bring some or all of them and use them in the busy subway and on the way. Contrary to the number of devices they have, they usually have one pair of earphone. So, it is inconvenient to change the plug to another device when moving. SWITCH can solve these needs by connecting with maximum 3 devices simultaneously by wi-fi direct. Users don’t have to spend time changing the plug anymore and they can enjoy their sound faster and more convenient.
