If your choice of headphones in the workplace makes a statement, then the question becomes this: What statement do you want to make?

Here are five headphones for your consideration — and a rough translation of what each is saying.


Model: Skullcandy Ink’d 2, in black, with mic:

Translation: I would rather you not ask me about my headphones.


Model: SleepPhones.

Translation: Zzzzzzzzz.


Model: Abyss AB-1266

Translation: I have an insane amount of disposable income. (These cost just shy of $5,500)


Model: 500XL Desktop Earbud Speakers

Translation: I have so little respect for your personal space, I will only listen to my earbuds out loud.


Model: Molami Twine

Translation: I am the kind of person who wears headphones that are best explained by a short art film.
