True story: a few weeks ago Munitio, a headphone company that makes earbuds shaped like 9 mm slugs, sent me a pair of their silver earbuds. I was supposed to fly so I put them in my bag and went through security. Luckily, big metal slugs shaped like bullets don’t show up on scanners so I was just fine. A word to the wise, however: unless you’re someone like Slash or something, these things are probably too rock and roll for you. You’ll probably also get tased by the TSA if they see them.
Their latest version, the [M] BLK, offer the same great Munitio shape with a small microphone for making phone calls. They’re available today for $180. More specs after the jump but you get the idea. Apparently they’re only available in “lifestyle boutiques” so hit your local Wet Seal after work.
