Here's another design concept that I can get behind: iPhone compatible headphones that mimics a stethoscope. This product is named "Stetheadphone" and is designed by Antrepo, a multi-disciplinary design consultancy that is supposedly based in Istanbul (I say supposedly because oddly enough, their website doesn't say and I found this information based off of Google results which frankly may not always be accurate.) Minimalistic and definitely a conversation starter. Originally I wondered why they didn't call it a stethophone as that runs much smoother off the tongue but apparently electronic stethoscopes are called stethophones. The things you learn when writing a blog post. Now if only someone would back this design and allow it to go to production.
