Show off your beloved headphones to the world.
Prepare a few pictures of you and
your beloved headphones
Fill out the application form
Your pictures and shout outs will be compiled
into a collection
Images must be at least 600x600 px
and below 1MB each.
Be in the picture with your headphones. You do not have to show your face, but the goal is to show how your headphones look while being worn.
Shout outs and comments can be anything as long as they are not offensive.
Sharing is caring.
What you will get in return is love from the community.
In one word--aesthetics. That's all.
I want to create a directory where people can find photos of how headphones look as a fashion accessory.
My inspiration comes from my obsession with headphones.
I want this project to eventually evolve into a collection where people can search for a pair of headphones and be greeted with not just pictures of headphones (you can find those by googling), but pictures of people actually wearing them.
After a long search online, I couldn’t find anything like this, and that’s when I realized that maybe I was onto something. I’m not really sure how this is going to turn out, but I am hoping that maybe some others share the same experience as me:
headphones are so much more than just their sound
What's the point of this?
Most people believe that sound quality matters above all else, but studies suggest that other factors may be even more important when considering purchasing a pair of headphones (source pending, I lost the url 'cause I suck). These factors include: comfort, appearance, and portability. You can find reviews that address comfort and portability, but most people do not have the luxury of trying on different headphones.
What makes this different from “post your headphones” threads?
Anyone can google for images of headphones. It's much more difficult to find pictures of how headphones look while being worn. This is important for people who value fashion.
What's in it for me?
In order to comply with rules for boards, I can't offer compensation or make this a sweepstakes.
What I can give you, however, is love from the community.
I love headphones. I go through them like people go through shoes or bags.
My journey started in 2000 when I was 11. I went from $30 (at the time super expensive for me) Sony headphones to crazy full-fledged audiophile setups in college. I then moved to Japan and have since downsized to more portable audio setups. That's when I started caring a lot about fashion, and thus began this project.
