Maybe you always thought the benefit of earbuds was that they're practically invisible.
Unlike giant cushiony over-ear headphones, earbuds hide the fact that you're just nodding blankly at your chemistry teacher while you have the "Hamilton" soundtrack blaring.
But here's a pair of earbuds where the very point is to make a fashion statement. The Chinese online shopping site Taobao is selling elf earbuds.
Although you could probably pull off a Santa's elf costume or even spark a Mr. Spock vibe with these, the photos show more of a J.R.R. Tolkien/"Dungeons & Dragons" style of elf.
They sell for about $14.40 (£12, AU$20). The earbuds are worn as normal, and they're connected to the little pointy covers that hook over your own ears. Practical to use now, plus with a little potential Halloween costume ability if you're already planning for 2017. Also perfect for taking elfies.
