Hearphone / earphone

People have to confirm R/L marked on two pieces before using earphones to put on them correctly. “Herephone” is designed to easily distinguish between right and left by a small change.

The surface of the left piece of earphones was treated in a smooth and flat way, whereas that of the right piece was treated in a rough and embossed way, which can facilitate distinguishing between right and left. In addition, different body colors, black and white respectively, will help one visually distinguish right and left. Let us not examine earphones to see right and left any longer.
