The Smell of sound

| January 3, 2011 | Reply

Can you smell what the Skunk is cooking? With the release of redefining gadgets proposed during CES 2011, we must not leave out Skunk Juice Earbuds. With an exciting platform and intriguing commercials, Skunk Juice is looking to corner a market that is untouched. With the expanding capabilities of portable music devices, smartphones and tablets, there is a need for a quality way to listen and share sound with limiting the damage to our eardrums.

SkunkJuice’s magnetic contact points allow for quick detachment when the cable is subjected to extensive tension, and damage to listening devices. The jacks are designed to hold tight when needed, but release when tugged in a certain, precarious direction.

Skunk Juice earbuds and their magnetic connectors might just save you from ruptured ear drums (video)
You know when you’re rocking out, earbuds nestled in your canals just so, and then the cord catches on something and it feels like your brain is getting sucked out through your ear holes? That very situation could be avoided if only you were wearing Skunk Juice earbuds. They feature a magnetic ZZYZX SnapJack connectors, not unlike those found in Belkin’s BreakFree guitar cable, providing a failure point somewhere south of your fragile head internals. Additionally, you can pop your magnetic terminator onto the end of any other pair of Skunk Juice ‘buds and listen in on what the other person is grooving out to, a situation charmingly demonstrated in the video below. We’re a little doubtful that these will ever be common enough for that particular halcyon vision of the future to come to pass, but right here in the present we’re quite sure that’s a strong contender for worst product name of the year — already.
