Echo by dimitris Ηaidas from greece

designer's own words:

"Echo" is meant to be an allround acoustic earphone, which could have a function of classic new-age device. Its main role is ensuring of acoustics, and gathering high quality of sound. Mostly, the inspiration is obtained from urban life and everyday noise impact on human’s health. This is how is this going to differ from conventional headsets, bluetooths and earphones , which try to provide high sound quality, but without solving the problem of outer environmental sounds. This device is also provided with microphone, six buttons for adjusting for multifunctioning and finally with a very flexible earphone, adjustable to ergonomy of the ear zone. The device is designed to be connected with cell phone in order to provide all desirable informations. The amount of informations (gps navigation, music, phone calls etc.) depends on the version of the cell phone and its software and applications. The allround acoustic earphone is fabricated of waterproof stretching plastics, which has special adhesion surface to the skin on the edge of its circular shape, so that can also be used for sport actions like jogging. Its golden rectangular ratio guarantees the delicacy of accurate and simple design.
