Quirky looking earphones with top notch sound: Quarkie

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, September 20, 2012

Looking for earphones that will make you stand out from the crowd?   The wildest come from a company called Quarkie.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   If you’re tired of those same old drab looking earphones,  the way to make a statement is to have a pair that look like rusty bolts sticking out of your ears, or snake heads, or cats eyes.   They are from a company called Quarkie where Robert Heiblim says…

“The chief developer woke up from a dream with images of these sorts of products in his head and we began to have a discussion about what could that mean.  And he decided that, yes, let’s go ahead and do it.  Let’s bring these dreams to market and give consumers really something they’ve never seen before, even though a headphone themselves, they’ve seen a lot.”

And wackie as they look…the sound is very good…as they should for the price of about 109 dollars.   There’s more info at q-u-a-r-k-i-e.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
