Several technological advancements have happened lately in the field of audio. Even then, people refrain from using their mp3 devices during trekking, hiking and other outdoor activities because they fear that product may get damaged. They are also scared of using these devices during workout, as the device cables may tangle and break. This shows that average headphones have to go to a long way, with a lot of scope for improvement.
Designers Jeremy Saxton and Jacob Hall realize the necessity of bringing revolutionary changes in headphones design and therefore, we have ODDIO1- the latest headphones offered in the market.

Jeremy Saxton and Jacob Hall, the creators of this product are Utah-based designers, who were interested in bringing a modern edge to an average headphone. They noticed how people had to face cord and cable trouble while plugging their headphones to a device. They also observed people tackling with their headset wires while exercising and performing an outdoor activity. This was enough to inspire the designers who decided to eliminate wires from the headphones.
Consequently, a headphone was devised that integrated mp3 into the product itself. Therefore, ODDIO1 came into existence. These headphones cuts out the middlemen and cabling by assimilating the headphone and audio device like an iPod Shuffle together. The designers took a cue from TikTok and Lunatik and efficiently combined the iPod Shuffle with an output device. These headphones are especially designed for use during exercise or outdoor activities.

1. NeoTune headphone with iPod dock
NeoTune headphones have been developed by RWC Corp Japan, and are available with an in-built iPod dock which enables cord-free music experience. This product is based on similar lines like ODDIO1 and has a compartment for attaching your 2nd generation iPod Nano to the headphones. But it doesn’t include a 3.5 mm stereo input; therefore, you cannot connect this device to any other audio source or laptop. At the same time, the design is a little bizarre and iPod Nano sticks out of the headphone, making you look weirder! The product can look more alluring if its design could be modified.
2. Headphones with iPod Shuffle dock
Designed by the headphone manufacturing brand, Monster, these headphones are dubbed as iDock, as they have integral iPod Shuffle dock. This eliminates the need for annoying cables. The product has an in-built dock for your mp3 player and therefore, you don’t have to worry about tangled cables and wires.

The dock leaves command surface of iPod uncovered so that you can navigate through the menu. The product comes in several attractive colors to suit your demands.

These products clearly indicate that a lot of changes have been incorporated in manufacturing of latest headphones. But still, there is a lot of room for upgrading these products. The designers and manufacturers have to do some more storming to eliminating the drawbacks of these products and to enhance sound quality. This way, these products will actually take the market by storm.
