These Headphones Make Listening To Music By Yourself Less Lonely

Posted: Updated:

Normally, people isolate themselves from the rest of the world when they put earbuds on and listen to music. But a new pair of headphones just made the experience a lot more social.

Jason Hardi, chief executive of headphone maker Muzik, talked with HuffPost Live's Mike Sacks about his company's latest pair of headphones, which let you share songs you're listening to by tapping on its side.

"They're the only headphones in the world that let you literally share the song as you're listening to it with Facebook, with Twitter, to your followers or save it to a playlist just by holding the hot keys," Hardi said.

His hope is that the headphones will reinvigorate the practice of sharing great music with friends and family.

"It's a real individual experience, and I wanted to try to create a 'we' experience, where from 'I' to 'we' I would be able to share what it is I'm listening to," Hardi said. "So we created a device to make it happen."
