Headphones that belong in the sink

Latest models from Zumreed look like cleaning utensils.

Zumreed is a Japanese brand with a design sense that's as strange as its name. It popped up on Crave last year with its colorful droplet-shaped speakers , but it's probably best known for its fashion-conscious headphones. Its latest creation, however, is just plain bizarre. The "Sfit Jewelry Edition" has the unfortunate distinction of bearing "286 high-quality colorful studs" on its ear cans, for what purpose we have absolutely no idea. They're described as "smart, slim, style" headphones, but they look a lot more like pot scrubbers or perhaps some kind of massage devices. Maybe that's a bonus. Even if they break, they can still be used to give back rubs or wash the dishes.
