8 wearable audio technologies that could change how we interact with music

From mind blowing to wonderfully silly, here are some of our future favourite ways to listen to music.

Right now, wearables are the hottest thing sinceā€¦ well, since tablets! But more so than any new technology in at least a decade, wearables offer the possibility of transforming how we interact with the world around us and the data related to it. We’ve all heard about Google Glass, the Nike FuelBand, and the Apple Watch, but what’s happening with audio wearables? Shouldn’t our ears get some kind of cyborg device too?

These eight audio wearables, ranging from mind blowing to wonderfully silly, are our favourite from the pack. Most of these are in alpha or beta mode, meaning your best chance of using one right now is by attending trade shows, but at least we can start getting excited for their release.
