Headphones turn ears into a battlefield

Rumbling EX2 earbuds will make your aural canals feel like they've been assaulted by heavy artillery.

Gizmodo

It's too bad that Michael Kanellos has given up his masochistic hobbies because this item would be right up his alley. It's one thing to have joysticks, keyboards, and other game gear that make you feel the action, but earphones?

A Korean company that goes by the amusing moniker of iFeelU is peddling a pair of "body-sonic" buds that will make your aural canals feel like they've been assaulted by heavy artillery. The rumbling EX2 earphones supposedly will create a "home theater in your ears," Gizmodo says, though we suspect it might be something worse if used by teens who fall asleep with them on at full blast. We'll be sure to find out, whether we like it or not, because they're heading for the U.S. market from Japan and South Korea soon. And we'll save a pair for Kanellos just in case.
