Apparently someone's trying to design an extremely modular, almost indestructible pair of headphones. gratuitous connectors aside, some aspects of the design are interesting - almost all the cables are easily replaceable, its designed in sections (and there's nothing stopping someone from offering a less complicated headphone cable), and its reinforced. I'm not totally sold on the way they split the cable (granted, its perfect for someone who wanted to DIY a bi-ended cable).
And its funded on kickstarter - which is a pretty interesting way to find projects like this - it only goes ahead if they make enough funds, which, if some small amp designer wanted to build a amp en mass, and needed funding, would work pretty well.
I'm sure someone's going to complain about the sheer number of connectors, but, its still a cool project - considering most earbuds i've owned have either gone at the earbud end, or at the joint, its probably the most robust way to do it.
