Wireless wonders: cool headphone concepts for the modern age

These stylish headphones concepts are the perfect combination of good looks and outstanding audio performance

The right pair of wireless headphones can make or break your day, whether you’re listening to your top podcast or favorite tune. Long gone are the days of tangling headphone wires – these smart designs are easy to use and great to look at. We’ve rounded up our favorite headphone concepts that will make listening to music a real treat.

1. Koishi by Sjoerd Ramaker

One of the coolest products on the market is the creation of Sjoerd Ramaker. The wireless concept earbuds are disguised inside a charging stone-shaped case that looks like a pebble. 

Koishi (小石), in Japanese, means “pebble”. To further the concept, the round-shaped charging case has a slight marble touch. When unused, integrated magnets inside the pouch hold them. 

The miniature headphones come with a smooth shape and the conventional tail-like part, which is useful while putting in or taking them out. In order to keep the earbud in place, it has a graceful curve that fits the face.

A LED light strip, which splits the case in half, functions as a charging indicator. It is disguised as a white band – like pebbles found on the beach often have. The earbuds are available in three colors, all inspired by the lovely stones you see at a stream.

Thanks to these features, the product is given a sense of tranquility and natural order. It contributes to Ramaker’s decision to incorporate biophilic themes.

2. RPT-02 SOL by Adidas

Built for modern-day exercisers by Adidas and Zound Industries, these special headphones can be charged with both natural and artificial light energy. This particular model is made of Powerfoyle, a solar cell fabric that converts sunlight and indoor light into electricity. The creation of the material was inspired by how plants use photosynthesis to convert light energy into chemical energy. 

The wireless headphones are powered by electricity generated by the material’s nanolayers when they are illuminated. What makes RPT-02 SOL so special is that it can be charged on the go! In fact, more sunlight means more charging. That encourages workout enthusiasts to go jogging outdoors.

The headphones, according to Adidas, can play music for up to 80 hours on a single charge.

3. IRIS Flow Headphones

Next on our list is the IRIS Flow Headphones, which are designed with integrated technology intended for human brain stimulation. The wireless headphones are made to induce a neurological state called “flow state”, in which the brain is calm and concentrated at the same time.

Moreover, the product digitally boosts a sound to reproduce the traits of a live show. It uniquely encourages the brain to do active listening and will forever change the way you listen to audio.

4. Olive Pro by Olive Union

Modern wireless headphones can also double as hearing aids. The product you see in the photo is made to look like standard earphones, but they offer other functions as well. Olive Union, a Japanese company, created Olive Pro as a modern, affordable, and appealing hearing aid for everyone.

Since they include cutting-edge AI technology, their high-definition speakers and microphones better support a user’s hearing.

These can change the quality of life for many because Olive Union AI can automatically cancel out background noise. It can also amp up human voices, whether in real life, while on a phone call, or watching television.  This also helps to create highly immersive listening experiences when in music mode.
