NxSET Wearable Speakers

with 7 comments

When working with technology, we are determined to have experiences that influence us in a good way and allow us to continue in a path or working with a particular program. However, with some of these experiences we are frustrated and this compels us to move towards a new program or a different strain of the technology. A piece of technology that was found to be useless was this new invention called ‘Wearable Speakers’. These NxSET Wearable Speakers allow you to listen to music while wearing the device stylishly around your neck. Much like headphones you can plug them into mp3’s and other devices that are compatible with speaker/ headphones. With a very high price of $79.95 you can purchase this waistless contraption and listen to music with the convenience of everyone else hearing while you listen. If you’d like to splurge a little more you can also purchase the same set with retractable earbuds that allow for completely private listening for the price of $159.95. With this device’s bulk being fashioned around your neck and extended to you ears, there’s no wonder why users are turning away from the gadget.

  1. I completely agree with your statement that the item would most defiantly would be too bulky. Also that it would be very disruptive to other around you.

  3. Also the newer ipods have built in speakers (not too sure about other mp3 players) , so I really don’t see a market for it.

  4. LOL I guess it could be an interesting product but I know when a person walks around with their music blaring it is so annoying especially on a train or even in a shopping mall.
    I like the design not the concept.. it would be nice if it massaged your neck as you listen to your favorite music maybe that would open up a larger market?
