Philips And Swarovski Launch Active Crystal Devices

If you're all about the bling bling, you'll be pleased to hear Philips And Swarovski are close to releasing their Active Crystal Devices. We've talked about the line before, but I'm pretty amused by the idea of bling bling gadgets and gizmos so I felt like I had to revisit the topic after reading that Active Crystal website is taking down people's contact information in order to prep for next month's release.

The line up includes USB Memory Keys (that's the fancy Swarovski way of saying "flash drives"), as well as headphones. The headphones will have a polished stainless steel body and a silver-colored fabric cable. They will also feature an "exclusive cut Silver Shade crystal dome" and "high definition balance sound." The USB Memory Key will hold up to 1 GB of data with password protection and will be available in polished stainless steel as well as covered in crystals. Word is they will cost $100. Would you buy one and what do you think of purchasing decorated devices?

Seems a little overdone for earbuds.

Swarovski is one of those things I just can't see wasting money on. It's even gold, for as much as charge. How is Swarovski different from any other thing with crystals all over it? Do it yourself or buy a cheaper brand, and nobody will ever know the difference.

i wouldn't buy them but i could see how some people might be inclined to. Sometimes those white earphones can get boring.

They are so gorgeous...but the instant you get fingerprints on them, they'll lose a bit of sparkle. Not so great for everyday life, but maybe if you were doing a launch for a new electronic product, you could give the event some sparkle with these.

Very cool - but it depends on the price. Not sure I'd be willing to spend $100 on a memory key. As for the headphones - it would depend on comfort and sound quality.

Lovely! These are so much cuter than regular ear buds and flash drives. I would buy the headphones.

Ooooo! Shiny things! I would get them if they were comfortable enough and the sound was good enough. There are so many out, it's overwhelming, so I've just stuck with the stock iPod buds.
