Neckphone / Headset

Neckphone
Neckphone

Overall design spirit: To play music without hearing damage.
Target:The person who works with an earphone on and teenagers who listen to music for a long period of time

The design of the neckphone was inspired by the practice of hanging the traditional headphones around the neck when not in use. Both sides of the neckphone are bendable, thus allowing the speakers to reach to ear height. In addition, this design affords the neckphone stability without having to be pressed to the ears. The person who wishes to use/wear earphones in the traditional manner can be accommodated by simply shortening the sides.
