Earphones as a fashion accessory. Audio-Technica.

Techstination feature for Tuesday, May 3, 2011

      Earphones as a fashion accessory.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    So many people walk or run around wearing earphones or headphones, more and more manufacturers are putting some effort into design.     Just in time for Mother’s Day, Audio Technica is out with some new styles to replace the typically sub-par earphones that ship with phones and music players.    Consumer Marketing Manager Crystal Griffith….

“There is a what we call Bloom, that is a little bit more pastel that has kind of a floral appeal to it if you will.  There is one called Key and the reason we call it Key is because it is a little bit more fancy and it actually comes with a key that is also a cord wrap to keep your cord all nice and tangle free.  And then we have what we call the Button.  And these are a cute on-ear pair that actually look like a button.”

There are sport and noise cancelling models as well.   Pricing starts at under thirty dollars.  You can find us at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
