  • It’s amazing… Amazing! I can’t wait until they’re available, I definitely need a set.

    Miss Elle says:
  • great concept, awesome look. A+

    tarynpaper says:
  • neat, yes…original no..
    this piece was done well over a year ago (more than 2 years now??).. also, facets on the cone will reduce the acoustic quality..
    still a fan of the S+S version…

    rnrjc says:
  • Ooh, the Science and Sons version looks far better.

    There’s also the added bonus of not having a picture of a bunch of morons giving the thumbs up to tinny headphone sound.

    TheGadfly says:
  • This would only be cool if they were:
    – collapsible (umbrella-like, or folded down)
    – made of paper or otherwise constructible from cardboard (i.e.: papercraft)

  • Hot Stuff! I like the onlineStore. Cool designed items. All thumbs up for qed!
