Music buffs will be pleased to hear that they don’t have to go through at least one pair of headphones every two weeks just because they listen to music even when they’re in bed. If you’ve ever slept with a pair of earbuds on, then you’ll notice that the wires wear out much faster than if you didn’t use them in bed.
The REM headphones aren’t the first one of their kind (remember the Bedphones?) However, they’re different and I kind of prefer their design because it’s more compact and better-looking than the others. They’re designed to fit snugly in your ears, and have cords covered with a woven outer layer to keep them from tangling and getting snagged as you toss and turn in bed.
Unfortunately, they’re only a concept design for now. But who knows? Maybe someone will see just how good designer Gregory Martin’s design is and pick it up to manufacture it.
