Apple To Corner ‘Pissing Off Everyone On The Bus’ Market With Hybrid Headphone/Speakers

The next step in headphone technology could be a big one

After the breakout success of the most losable earphones on earth, Apple are following up with another brave decision. A patent registered by the company in 2011 was granted last week. Now Apple are moving ahead with the release of headphones with a speaker mode.

Right now the headphones are in their infancy but you can look at Nick Cannon’s Ncredible headphones to see where it’ll go. If they come with decent battery life, an all inclusive headphone and speaker set could make a big impact. Portable speakers could see the end of an era if the trend catches on.

Worst case scenario, that one guy who thinks he’s the life of the party will become the EDM equivalent of a Transformer for six months.

The patent they registered relates to sensors which change the mode of the headphones when placed in certain positions. They have the patent but it sounds pretty similar to the Ncredible Flips but at least Apple are likely to release without the ridiculous ad campaign.
