The History Of The Headphone.


Surprisingly, not everyone wants to hear our music. When we were pumping our LCD Soundsystem mixtape, others in the office said they couldn’t “concentrate” and they “wished we were fired.” For this, and for many other reasons, headphones are an absolute necessity in our daily lives. It was long before Steve Jobs produced white earbuds and Dr. Dre jumped in the game, however, that people began getting tunes pumped into their ear canal. Here’s basically how it all went down.

1881 – Way before MP3s, dubstep and premium Spotify accounts, headphones had little to do with music at all. Back in the 1880’s, the first headphones (or at least their early ancestors) were used by telephone operators. It was a single earpiece that rested on the user’s shoulder and weighed over 10 pounds (kinda like placing a boombox on your shoulder).

1895 – Thanks to the Electrophone system, in 1895 folks could start rocking out to the sick beats of the local opera house from the comfort of their own home. Subscribers to the pricey service would listen through headphones that looked more like stethoscopes than a modern offerings as very large people produced very big sound on a stage miles away.

1910 – Nathaniel Baldwin began manufacturing the first modern headphones. He crafted them in his kitchen and sold them all to the U.S. Navy. This was the first time a pair of cans resembled something you’d see today. Baldwin never patented them, however, because he was an idiot.

1937 – The DT-48’s from Beyerdynamic became the first dynamic headphones to hit the market. Though it would be a few decades before electrostatic headphones came into play, this was obviously a huge leap forward in the can story. Dynamic headphones are, to this day, the most popular type on the market.

1949 – With design in mind, AKG produced their first pair of headphones, the K120’s. If they were reproduced today, they would sell like hotcakes at Urban Outfitters. This model, and other more popular ones that followed, were enough to make AKG quit the film equipment business and focus just on audio.

1958 – John C. Koss changed the headphone game in a way that would make Dr. Dre jealous. In 1958, Koss created the first stereo headphones (Koss SP-3) and launched an all out assault on awaiting ear canals. Over the next few decades, Koss would come to dominate the headphone industry, and he would do it all without the need for a pesky college education.

1959 – At a show in Tokyo, Stax debuted the world’s first ever electrostatic pair of headphones. The SR-1’s would go into production a year later. They are now extremely rare like an original pair of Nike Air Mag’s or a headphone user without hearing loss.

1968 – A decade after introducing the first stereo headphones, Koss unleashed the first US made electrostatic model. The ESP-6’s clocked in at around two pounds, meaning they weren’t exactly like putting in a pair of earbuds, but were still a long ways from the massive pieces created less than a century before.

1979 – If you had to pick the most important event in headphone history, you’d be hard-pressed not to choose Sony dropping the Walkman. All of a sudden, headphones had to be portable. Included with the purchase of the first Walkman were Sony’s MDL-3L2 headphones and everything you needed to rock out to London Calling while roller skating in your driveway.

1980’s – For the man who was prone to headphone hair, the 80’s offered the first solutions. Both the earbud and the in-ear headphone made their way onto the scene in the 80’s even though they wouldn’t reach their peak in popularity until one Steven Paul Jobs changed the music game years later.

1997 – If you wanted to keep your hair in check but also hated the fact that earbuds couldn’t isolate sound well, Sony thought you might like a pair of neckband headphones. You didn’t.

2000 – Screaming babies and loud snorers met their match when Bose unveiled their QuietComfort line. Though pilots had been using noise-cancelling technology for decades, now passengers could also get some relief on loud flights (or in front of the TV with a nagging spouse).

2001 – The iPod changed up the whole music universe. It became common to see people with a white cord running from their pocket to their ears multiple times a day. From their inception in 2001 to today, over 300 million iPods have been sold all with the accompanying pair of earbuds.

2008 – Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine joined forces and, along with Monster, created Beats by Dre headphones. Designed with deep bass and great sound quality in mind (this is debatable), the Beats line quickly grabbed a large market share and could be seen on just about every NBA player as they walked from the bus to the locker room.

2012 – Headphones have become as much about style as they are sound quality. This may never have been more relevant than when Lil Wayne wore these $1 million dollar pair of Beats.

The Price Of Being Batman.


Being Batman comes at a cost. Not just the physical and emotional toll, mind you. We’re talking money. Dollar signs. Big bucks. Make no mistake — in the case of the Caped Crusader, extraordinary wealth is absolutely a superpower.  The clever folks at MoneySupermarket.com have put together an equally clever infographic featuring the “Dark Knight Rises” hero and all of his wonderfully expensive toys, showing you just how much money goes into each and every item in Batman’s arsenal. The short version: protecting Gotham City is not a cheap gig.

Another little Batman related tid-bit I came across came from my curiosity as to the exact landscape of Gotham city. Not anymore. This map details every street corner and neighborhood of the city that Batman protects.

Your Body Is A Canvas (Some Tattoo Facts).


One of the greatest things about design is that people are constantly coming up with new and creative ways to solve problems, display information or convey a message in a better way. Paul Marcinkowski (AKA Kaplon) is the designer behind this tattoo infographic which he made for a class project at the Academy Of Fine Arts in Łódź, Poland. Readers know that I’m a fiend for good infographics, and while poorly made infographics have been called the ‘plague’ of the internet, it’s great to see an artist sink their teeth into the medium and create something truly original.

The infographic highlights different aspects of the tattoo process: where tattooing is practiced (worldwide), the percentage of people who have tattoos, interesting fun facts about the tattoo machine, most popular tattoo designs, and the top three reasons why people regret getting their tattoos. The artwork is brilliant and nails the style of tattoo art on the body while also integrating the tattoo style into infographic design.

What To Wear To A Job Interview.


Deciding what to wear for a job interview can be nearly as stressful as the event itself. Beyond deciding what looks good on you, there’s also determining what’s appropriate dress for the employer who’s looking to look you over.  The growing trend in recent decades toward more casual dress in offices and other workplaces means three-piece suits are out for the most part. But going too casual can send a signal to a potential employer that you’re just not interested in working there.  So it’s no wonder that many college graduates (and job applicants, generally) are unsure of how to dress for an interview these days.  But seeing as how I happen to be a bit fashion-inferior, I figured I’d just post this handy info-graphic by the minds over at Rasmussen College as a guide.

The Evolution Of The Geek.


I’ve been called many different things in my day, and the two I get the most are ‘Geek’ and/or ‘Nerd’ (which are not necessarily untrue assessments of my personality when I’m not at work).  But as curious as I am, I decided to take a look into the term Geek while I was on break during a studio session.  My findings were quite interesting.  Check the method.
