A friend and I at work started talking about weird speakers, so… here’s the results of a couple hours of surfing and gawking.
First let’s start with the affordable, I noticed these on a Korean site, but actually Scott has covered them before:
To paraphrase Monty Python: These are the biggest earbuds you’ll ever see! They cost like $50. Let’s move quickly on…
From SG Custom Sound who carry a bunch of wild designs. Now let’s go waaay upmarket…
They had an incredible launch event for these at the Milan Furniture Fair 2007–check the video. They cost $140K and they only made 100 pairs. For some reason I can’t find any of those pairs for sale on eBay at the moment. :((
And last to mention are the Grand Enigma, a one-of-a-kind set by Kharma, which cost $1,000,000. I won’t even show you a picture cuz they are bigger than they are pretty. And you can’t have them anyway.
Poking around on this theme I found several pages dedicated to cataloging Weird Speakers, enjoy:
