Bowtie Headphones   (+12)  [vote for, against]

Many people -- I've seen them -- hang their headphones around their necks, when not using them to pump tunes into their brains.

Bowtie Headphones. A fashion accessory, a style statement, a status symbol. Each earcup is an inverted triangle of glossy black plastic, so that when hung around the neck, gives the impression of an enormous bowtie.

Attached is a quick sketch of the item.

It would be possible to have a fake bow-tie with retractable reels inside the wings of the bow.

This is potentially the best idea I have read this week, with only 3.5 hours to go. [+]

If you build it, they will bun.

Or a hair-bow like Minnie Mouse...

Nice sketch. The bow-tie face is the serious, with the worried, do you like it? head recline, and the music listening face has that smirk of relaxation with a hint of the new music experience.

And the idea is not bad too.

" If you build it, they will bun. "

And if you did, and I wore them, which I would, I could use it as a recruiting tool to attempt to lure new contributors to the Halfbakery.

This is the second in a series of ongoing posts aimed at repurposing existing ideas as recruiting tools. No ideas were harmed in the making of this annotation.

Magnets at the triangular tips would link the bow nicely and be easily removed. Like those spectacles.
