Music, as we often said it, is one of the most entertaining habits we have. The first portable media player – known as personal stereo or Walkman – was released in the 1979 by Sony and created by Akio Morita, Masaru Ibuka – co-founders of Sony and Kozo Ohsone. After only one year, the portable CD player came to be, as the introduction of CDs to the market had quite the effect. The first headphones ever invented were actually earpieces, and Nathaniel Baldwin was the one who managed to successfully build the first functional set. Ever since, the market of headphones quickly evolved and released some of the most wicked devices ever built. Our list is going to encapsulate ten funky headphones to match your style. Enjoy!
