Totally Geeky or Geek Chic? Colorful Headphones

The popularity of the iPod and its matching white earbud headphones has contributed to one of the worst fashion trends in history: masses of people walking the streets with dorky headphones. The alternatives, namely large DJ headsets or Swarovski-laden earbuds, end up looking equally, if not more dorky. But what of these Aural New York colorful headphones? If you can ignore their tacky wanna-be sexy marketing campaign, the company offers an array of cute brightly-colored headphones that would help the world break out of the white earbud slump. They cost $20 and come in pink, orange, green, blue, black and white (mixed) and black. Is accessorizing your headphones ridiculously geeky (in a bad way) or geek chic?
