World’s Largest Headphones

Watch out Maxell guy, there’s a new game in town. Actually I don’t think the Maxell guy is even in town anymore. Maybe it’s a dated reference. Let me rewind this tape and think about it. Dallyn Rule created this massive pair of headphones for the Vancouver Maker Faire. Yes they are fully functional. Yes they are more like speakers than headphones. Yes there’s a video.

That’s some real surround sound. The cool part is that you can listen to music (loudly) and it won’t mess up your hair. The bad part- they might be just sliiiiiiightly awkward to bring with you to the gym or on a train. Then again, you don’t really need to go the gym when you could just do a set of headphone lifts.
