Pop a pair of Buta Earphones ('buta' is Japanese for Pig) in your ears and onlookers will think a very slim, VERY long piggie crawled in one ear and half-out the other. You DO want to look like that, don't you? DON'T YOU??
Whew, got a little carried away there. I mean, who wouldn't want to cruise the streets with a pig's head sticking out one ear and a pig's butt hanging out the other?
I won't wait for an answer, but I WILL state that Green House of Japan believes in the Buta Earphone to the point where they've just introduced two new colors (purple and orange) to round out the current lineup of black, white and oink. I mean pink.
Aside from their essential piggishness and obvious cuteness, Buta Earphones boast the usual tech specs that make them practical earbuds and not just novelties. Each pair comes with a standard, gold-plated 3.5mm stereo miniplug for your MP3 music player and users enjoy a 20Hz-20KHz listening experience.
Also, buyers can choose from small, medium and large sizes. Get yours at Rakuten's online portal for the newly reduced price of 1,200 yen (about $13) including tax but less shipping.
