Tim Dubitsky has just prototyped “hood.e“, a super-cozy solution to bringing music to your ears without blocking everything else out. The product has a great genesis: Tim originally created the design as a present for his nephew–who walks a dangerous route to school crossing busy thoroughfares–and wanted to make it safer for him by freeing up his ears from blasting earbuds that blocked out all the street noise.
It looks like these would be a simple remake, and the styling is nice. Anybody know how speakers hold up in the wash? Oh, teenage boys don’t wash their hoodies? Ok, good.
