Otokurage Earbuds Make You Feel Like You’re Sticking Jellyfish in Your Ears

Okay, maybe using these otokurage earbuds won’t exactly feel like you’re sticking some of those slimy and stinging sea creatures into your ears, but that’s what inspired Japanese studio nendo when they came up with this translucent and ethereally colored earbud.

These remind me a bit of those ADEL inflatable earbuds that are (literally) bloated up with air to provide a softer cushion to your ears while you plug those babies in. Maybe because they appeared translucent and slightly jelly-like, too.


The Elecom otokurage earbuds are a delight to look at, and hopefully, they will be equally delightful to use, too. They come in six different colors that are extremely appealing, from basic black and white, to the more bright colors like pink, purple, blue, and green.

The earbuds don’t just come in the usual boxes or cases either; in fact, they’re housed in plastic water bottles (without the water, of course) that just adds to the whole appeal of these darn things. They will most likely be sold only to the Japanese market though, but you might be able to get your hands on them if you’re resourceful enough (*cough* eBay or Rinkya *cough*).
