the exod ‘helios’ solar headphones are a wireless, bluetooth 4.0 connected headset that recharges its internal battery by sourcing natural light through its top-located photovoltaic film. mounted on the top face of the ‘helios’, the solar cell can also energize the music storage device when connected by a cable through its micro USB port. the non polluting process on headphones is patented and brings great comfort in terms of both mobility and user freedom. the gadget features multifunctional buttons to control the tracks, volume and the on/off switch, and also has a built-in microphone to enable wearers to answer calls.
