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?

i would buy them. i've always wondered why there were only white earbuds, glad someone finally got an idea and put colorful buds out on the market. =)

I would wear them if they were comfy! And aren't women/girls more likely to purchase these colored earbuds? Why oh why is there T&A?

Of course I'd wear 'em! They're like regular headphones except with color, making them more attractive looking! :D

I just checked Amazon and it looks like JVC redid the earphones so they're more colorful! They're up to $9 for the new ones but that's not bad at all! And they're called Gumy headphones. :oops:

I'm more concerned about quality than anything else. I would rather find a bland set of headphones that are comfortable than a trendy set of earbuds that leave my ears hurting.The ads are really lame too.And anyway, JVC makes cute colorful Gummy earphones that you can get on Amazon for under $5.

Earbuds suck, and so do images of a girl in her bra trying to show off how cool the earbuds are. I dont like either, the product and the ad photos.

I love 'em, but I would very much prefer wireless headphones!

I love the headphones, but I agree, the marketing could use some work.

They're cute, but unfortunately I am doomed to look dorky because all earbud headphones are incredibly painful for me!
