Often, we see CGI rendering of concepts that look just like real products. Urbanears’ Bagis headphones are the opposite: a real product that looks like a computer mockup.
The optical illusion is no doubt helped by the Bagis’ single-color construction. Made from rubber, every part is the same shade of whatever garish color you choose. Some may say they look cheap, but I like the look, and if you live in Eastern Europe you could set off your sense of Ostalgie by buying a pair in drab gray or olive green.
Fancy colors are nice and all, but the Bagis (that’s a horrible name, by the way, a cross between “bag” and “haggis”) also have a neat trick: the earbuds snap together like Lego bricks. One ‘bud is male, the other female, and they join together to keep your cord from tangling when not in use. This also provides a quick visual (and tactile) reference as to which is left and right, something tricky to determine with many earbuds.
Finally, like all Urbanears cans, the Bagis have an in-line remote and a mic for making calls. The Bagis are available now, for $30.
