Gadget shop Red5 has announced the Zumreed X2, a pair of headphones which can switch to a nifty looking desktop speaker with the press of a button.
They’ll work as standard over-ear headphones, with built-in noise isolation and available in a choice of colours.
But set the swivelling cups down on your desk, switch on the additional outer drivers and you’ve got a perfectly serviceable set of stereo loudspeakers for your laptop or other device.
The built-in battery should give you around four hours of play time before you’ll need to charge them again via USB lead.
The Zumreed X2 Hybrid headphones will be available later this month for £120.
