These are not just headphones, these are gut-crunching, brain throbbing, wide-spectrum audio instruments of doom. (the good kind of doom). A hybrid, Quasimodo of an earbud and over-the-ear design, the "music producing" end of these cranium cacophonies float over your ear canal, allowing air pressure to be at equilibrium (except when it's driving deep hard bass into your head cavities). The rest of the apparatus, looks like a dental headgear set without the oral dental structure.
These are pretty revolutionary. "These new headphones attempt to achieve sound equal to audiophile-grade front-facing speakers by separating bass, which is pumped into the ear canal, from treble and mids, which are projected through two spheres towards the ears, just like traditional speakers." Create your own personal listening field with these headphones. Truly futuristic - white earbuds are so 2007.
