Crystal earphones aren't all disgusting

Swarovski actually restrains itself, for once

The 'Mirage' headphones Gadget Candy

As amazing as it seems, the Swarovski is capable of putting its crystal-studded name on products that aren't totally disgusting . Even though its latest USB key is still a bit garish, the glass house co-produced some subtly designed earphones as part of its newly released "Active Crystals" products. (Perhaps it's the influence of Philips, which is co-branding the line.)

The four new sets--"Space," "Icon," "Amazone" and "Mirage"--come in polished silver and four crystal cuts, including navette and baguette. (Tiffany, eat your heart out.) Gadget Candy approves: "The jammy jewelry also totes rubber pads so they're easy on the lobes, darling." We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
