IPhone Bluetooth Headsets: Heavy Metal in Your Ears
July 13th, 2008
Apple’s iPhone Bluetooth wireless headset revels in its minimal design. But what’s to say that it couldn’t handle a little extra sophistication and elan?
German jewelry designer Andi Monn took the opportunity to dress up the iPhone’s earpiece with these striking metal covers. Just slip the form-fitting metal sleeve over the body of your headset, and these instantly transform into a work of art on your ear.
A specially designed magnet holds the sleeve in place without affecting the electronics of the earpiece. Each one comes with a leather cord that you can wear around your neck, as well as a custom-embossed keyring.
Available in .925 Sterling silver or high-grade brushed steel, they retail for a whopping €159 (appx. $253 USD) a piece, making them more than twice as expensive than the headset itself. But if really, really want to show off your stuff, Monn can create them custom in gold, platinum, white gold, or other precious metals on request as long as you’ve got the dough.
