I'm Flying headset design by Rodshakur, inspired by R Kelly's track I Believe I Can Fly

Last year Wieden + Kennedy London launched the Nokia Music Almighty Headset Competition, which invited entrants to design a Nokia Bluetooth headset, inspired by their favourite piece of music. The winning designs have now all been made into fully functioning headsets, some of which are more wearable than others...

Graveyard Shift headset by Johnny Lighthands, inspired by Michael Jackson's Thriller

The competition, which followed on from W+K's striking Nokia Music Almighty poster campaign, attracted almost 8,000 entries in just three months. The winning designs were chosen by a panel of judges including Dick Powell, Eddi Yip, Tej Chauhan and Felix Buxton (Basement Jaxx), and the headsets will be on display at the Nokia Regent Street Flagship store in London in April.

Free Willy headset by Maria Lecanda, inspired by Michael Jackson's Will You Be There

Robot Rock headset by G Smith, inspired by Daft Punk track Robot Rock

CF Flex headset by Mr G, inspired by Rufige Kru track Dark Metal

Will these be on sale at all? I really want those Daft Punk ones...

Sadly Julian, they are all one off's which we get to keep once they have been displayed at various Nokia flagship stores.

That's brilliant, It's great to see the finished articals. Are there any shots of people actually wearing them? (if they can be worn!)

Just found out about this competition. Had a look at some entries; seems like they gave you the option of a template, but I like the ones that didn't use it better and I like the Daft Punk ones best of all. Congrats Mr Smith. Wish I could have entered.

If they went into production I'd get the one with wings, not because I like the song at all but the headphones look awesome.

I love the fantastic look of the Angel wings, they would be awesomness to keep them as a work of art, but not that much to really use to listen to music in a regular way lol. In that case Daft Punk headphones are the more cool to use in a normal way.

I don't like the two on the top.(The one with wings and the Graveyard set), but the other ones is quite cool. Especially the Robot set. Thanks for posting:-) - Ray J. - Mobilhuset: Mobil uten Abonnement
