Studio Banana Things has always left us with an ambiguous feeling towards the future of humanity – their ostrichpillow is the most futile/offensive invention ever. Not to mention how overpriced that piece of shit is – to the extent that we doubt human creativity and whether or not the extinction of our species will be caused by our tendency to invent unnecessary $99 crap.
But their latest ear-free headphones, batband, has changed our perception of them. Sort of.
Honestly, we never imagined a world where dosing on aupium without using our earholes would be possible – it’s like living in a dimension where Larregui is not fronting Zoé, but modeling as a resting-bitchfaced hormonal teen in Shakira’s video. But Banana Things has defied our expectations – in a semi-positive-but-still-neutral way.
Apparently, batband transmit sound waves through your cranial bone, which reach your inner ears and you can hear twice as much.
Just because of ostrichpillow, we still have some trust issues regarding their products and unless we test it out ourselves, we cannot really tell you if it’s worth investing. But whether it will revolutionize the listening experience in the music industry or technologically weed out in failure like Motorola cell phones, it’s up to you guys.
