Visual Headphones Are Music on Inside, Graphics on Outside

Taking the concept of sharing music from a purely auditory experience to a visual one, these headphones from designers ChanHyun Park & SeJi Kim let wearers share their beats without removing their headphones.

The side of each earpiece has a small display screen that flashes graphics to sync up with whatever the wearer is listening to. The display is fully customizable so the listener can decide exactly what the rest of the world will see.

The graphics choices include sound graphs and synchronized flashes of colored lights. The concept seems completely doable with current technology and would definitely attract a lot of attention for those who can’t help but show off their music.
