In today’s society, one pair of headphones seems to rule us all. It may be because of the brand name behind it, as the white iPod earphones are clearly the number one choice to accompany an MP3 player. Some companies have dared to be different by creating weird designs. But as the following list shows, choosing to take the dare instead of sticking to what’s true can be a horrible decision.
Unusual Headphones #1. Koss KSC75
These headphones are titanium-coated and created to give a listener high-quality sound. Clip-on headsets are cool when it comes to originality, but they look better with a simple design than something that accidentally dropped out of a UFO. (Buy here )
Unusual Headphones #2. Acurra SR-660
Almost see-through, the product’s design is perfect for when you’re working in a factory or on a construction site. Sure it does have an old-school look, but is it something the hipsters of today will accept with open arms?
Unusual Headphones #3. Fatman FatPhones
The main feature of the FatFones is that its designed to make sure no sound “leaks” when you’re listening to your favourite music. But that feature comes at a price and I don’t mean money. It is designed to fit into your ear perfectly, but the slug-like tip of the headphones is hideous. There is the option of taking off the tip, but that would defeat the whole purpose of preventing “sound leakage”.
Unusual Headphones #4. Logitech Curve
Even though they’re meant for the younger crowd, these headphones look too much like plastic rubber. They also wrap around the back of your head which can take time to get use too. (Buy here )

Unusual Headphones #5. AKG Acoustic K701
Pinned at a hefty price tag, the K701 is said to be extremely comfortable. However, the self-proclaimed “ear speaker” belongs in a home studio than on a bus or in a gym. (Buy here )
Unusual Headphones #6. Skullcandy Headphones
There’s a good reason why a specific model or design wasn’t named. That’s because most of these headphones are a bit too stylish. The designs are definitely creative and keeping true to the “bulky look” works, but some are just a bit over the top.

Unusual Headphones #7. AKG K100
Move over studio headsets, these headphones just blew you out of the water in terms of size! Along with looking freakishly big, the AKG K100 looks like electronic ear muffs. They’re claimed to be high performance headphones that create an incredible sound, but is it worth risking your sense of fashion?

Unusual Headphones #8. Takara Tomy's Transformers Headphones
At first they look like miniature white hockey pucks, but these headphones are anything but ordinary because they transform. Yes, it’s true. The odd headphones transform into a Transformer! The concept is cool, but for some reason it looks like Megatron’s hastily trying to get away from the evil contraption known as “the ear”. (Buy here )
Which one do you think is the most unusual pair of headphones? Are there any other weird headphones you know of that should have been mentioned?
