We've already seen and iPod cases covered in Swarovski rhinestones. So why not crystal-studded earbuds?
Deirdre Hutchins, Technocel's director of product management, said her company was initially targeting the crystal earbuds at teenagers. But in a recent focus group, it turned out that women really like them, too. "They saw (them) as a piece of jewelry," she said.
The earbuds are made and branded by Technocel, and can be purchased online at www.cellcheap.com.
