It happens to everyone: You're listening to your favorite band on your MP3
player and a friend comes over and starts talking to you before you
even have a chance to get the earbud out, nevermind turn off the music.
Ericsson believes it's solved that pesky issue, with what it says is "the world's first ever motion activated headphones."
Basically, if you pull the bud out of your ear, the music or the call
you're on stops. Right in its tracks. You can see by the publicity shot
Sony Ericsson released to accompany the headphones that it makes people
come in either yellow/white or "Titan Chrome" (which appears to be
black and silver) and work on most Sony Ericsson phones with a fast
port connector. They're 164 cm long and weigh a mere 25.32 grams.
The funky video Sony hired animator Kristofer Ström to create shows a world
in which the earbuds allow the user to transport himself from a
Kansas-like black and white boring world into an Oz-like colorful world
with odd-looking bunnies.
