Jack McGann / Headphones / headset

Jack McGann

Viceroy headphones are designed to correct the posture and fix neck problems while at the desk. When researching, I found most student at the library or labs had headphones in and were slouched over their keyboard or sunk into their chair. The neck brace portion helps maintain proper neck position. The headphones themselves are wireless and connect to devices through blue tooth technology - a system that already exists with Beats Headphones. The volume control and buttons are heat-sensitive, much like a track pad on a laptop. When the user decides not to listen to music or other media they can detach the headphones and continue to wear brace.
