The 404 Show: Worst Tech Ever (Flips Audio)The guys from The 404 Show asked a bunch of CNET editors for their thoughts on a new kind of headphones that can transform into speakers.
-Hey, what's up everyone? We're the guys from The 404 Show. We're trying out a new segment here. We're gonna take a look at the latest and greatest, the world of tech has to offer. -The first product we have for you today is from a company called Flips Audio. And we also asked what the other CNET editors thought too, so let's check it out. -These are Flips. -All right. -They're more than just headphones. Flips have a secret. -Put them on the way out. -Hey. -Hey. -They're the only headphones that flip into powerful speakers. -Oh, boy. -I screw your neighbors-- -Hey. -It must be doing terrible damage in your ears. -That is so cool. So cool, not my first [unk]. -That's too much hairstyling. -That's amazing. -There's nothing amazing about headphones that are inside and out. -Now I'm hearing this guy's music. -Someone's gonna get punched if they wear these. -That was awesome. -So these are real reactions of people. -Uh-hmm. But these aren't real people though. -It was like a concert or something. -It's like a concert or something. -I can't say anyone who would be like, "This is the product I was looking for. I love headphones but they were never speakers." -All right. It was decent, I like that. -Decent. That guy's got it. They're pretty decent. -So now I'm a walking music machine? -No, you're a walking pain in the ass. -You don't need to have your headphones and your speakers separately. Now they're just here. -Now that's a horrible idea man. -The sound is phenomenal. -I think the people in the video are the target on Hipsters that really don't know good sound. -At flipsaudio.com. -I think if we're raising a generation of audio files and you're gonna have really good audio quality and not gimmicks. That's the big problem there.
