Plug It In! Headphones


Plug it in! designed by recent product design graduate Dorien van Heijst is a pair of headphones with an additional connector that allows you to share your music with others while still listening independently.

Inspired by today’s social networks and media in which we share interests without physical contact, van Heijst – a graduate from Utrecht School of Arts in The Netherlands – created a connecter socket that attaches to the side of the wood and porcelain headphones, which allows other listeners to plug in. The headphones are also designed so that no sound or volume loss will occur.
