Imagine this: you’re all dressed up as an elf from a high fantasy series, when you get the urge to listen to your EDM tunes while waiting for your cosplay team mates to get their kit on. It all boils down to two choices: you had to remove your prosthetic ears so your over-ear headphones don’t damage them, or you had to hum your tunes in your head so you don’t have to reapply your ears with spirit gum.
Someone must’ve thought really long and hard about the situation described above, because Thanko (pronounced Sanko) is producing a combination prosthetic cosplay elf ear and in-ear headphones! Available exclusively via the Thanko online shop, these statement in-ear phones can be yours for a mere JPY 1980.
They are really simple to put on: just nestle the ear part over the tops of your ears, and insert the in-ear speaker so they fit comfortable. The earphones also come with a load of practical features, such as a pause button so you don’t have to fumble with your smartphone’s controls, and an in-line mic so you can take phone calls on the go.
