Beats and Apple may have fused, but that won’t silence one of the former’s cofounders, who’s trying his hand at radically reworking our vision of the earphone into one that’s worn all day long around the neck. The Ropes’ aluminum cubic design runs through all its components including both earpieces, its three-button mic, and splitter pendant, which also houses batteries, electronics, and a spare 3.5mm jack for sharing your music with a friend. Roam’s Noise Equalization also creates an attenuated listening environment, perfect for setting the conditions for their professed stellar sound quality shine through. And thanks to Bluetooth plugging them into your device is entirely optional.
