I love headphones, as you might have noticed; I’ve written at length about AirPods, Samsung’s Beans, and several other pair of musical earplugs recently.

But none get me more excited than the more expiramental types of headphones out there. The kind that dare to think out of the box.

For me, I don’t need noise-cancelling, surround sound, heavy bass headphones all of the time. In fact, most of the time I just want to have a soundtrack playing in the background while I’m working, preferabbly without blocking my ability to hear my surrounding enviroment and preferabbly without my surrounding environment having to be subjected to listening to “You’ll Be Back” for the hundreth time.

So, the two pairs of “headphones” that I’ll be comparing today are two of the most interesting I’ve come across: a pair of music-playing spectacles and a headband that sends sound through your skull.

Neat, huh?
