ADEL Inflatable Earbuds Look Comfortable (And a Little Freaky, Too)

by Hazel Chua

We’ve all been taught at a young age to never judge a book by its cover. I guess the same applies to these strange-looking earbuds that promise a whole new level of comfort when it comes to enjoying your music.

Say hello to the ADEL inflatable earbuds (with the balloon portion resembling the outer covering of hakaw, which is a shrimp dumpling dish that I absolutely have to have every time I go out to get some dim sum.)

ADEL Inflatable Earbuds
Looks aside, the earbuds are made inflatable for two simple but very important reasons: comfort and improved sound quality. I love listening to music, especially when I’m on the go or when I’m in bed about to turn in for the night. I usually just pop on my earphones and I find that they aren’t the most ear-friendly things in the world because they start to hurt after an hour or two. That’s specifically what these ADEL inflatable earbuds hope to eliminate. Aside from the added comfort, it also delivers louder sound at lower volumes than what would have been required with your plain, old balloon-less earphones.

These are actually an invention by Stephen Ambrose published in Sound+Vision mag. They’re not being produced yet but I’m going to stand in line to get one if they eventually will be made available commercially.
