I'd say this is Mr. Blurry Cam's greatest work.

It's super easy to rip all the cables out of the crap headphones that come with the iPod.

I bet these are fakes. I take that back, these are fakes.

The probability that Apple would be able to design wireless headphones that are as small as their current headphones is zero.

Those are real because wireless earbuds would need the plug for the headphone in port.

I'm going with fake. Sure, there's no wires, and they are headphones, but without power they'll be pretty useless. Transmitters and receivers require power, and these have no room for batteries anywhere.

No, these are legit. Just got off the phone with Steve. Only catch is that the charger is kinda cumbersome. But coming in at 1000w, it will only require an AC plug and four power cables soldered to the internal wiring of the headphones each time you'd like to charge them.

I think you mean he's "closely related to an apple".

if there was any chance that these were infact real, the plug that goes in the iPod wouldn't have that thing sticking out of the end, it would be prettier, and possibly shinier, as it's made by Apple.

Like the iPod clock radio docks and such, I want a iPad Boom Box dock.

Just plug the iPad into the boom box and instead blam it out audio woot woot.

Tell your buddy to send you another pic, but turn the lights off so we see if they glow in the dark.

All BT headphones do...
