The following is from the designers:


We designed earphones “otokurage” for a Japanese computer accessories manufacturer “ELECOM”

“otokurage(oto=sound, kurage=jellyfish)”

design concept
We enlarged the silicon ear caps that cover earphones to hide the entire device, creating a set of in-ear headphones with a soft feel and an unusual transparency like that of a jellyfish.

Because the earphones' components are unified into one piece, substituting the colour or size of the earcap changes their look entirely.

To keep with the image of a jellyfish floating in the water, the packaging was inspired by a PET plastic soft drink bottle.

This product will be sold in Japan from end of May.
