Style

The style seed was probably first widely planted with Apple using white housing for its earbud cables. For the first time on a massive scale, a person's headphones became a fashion accessory – at least suggesting they had the tremendous fashion to own an iPod. If the seeds were planted by Apple, then the hydroponic factory farms were built by Beats, whose designers were probably inspired by Skittles as much as they were by other headphones. Wearing a $300 green headband is fashionable. The headphones don't even need to be plugged into anything.
