    I had this idea in 2005, Fred&Friends knew this and produced 500XL in 2008, I did not receive credit nor payment!

    @edward – Yup, those are very big earphones but they’re not supposed to be used as regular earphones but as desktop speakers. Hehe :D

    @jay – I suck at math! Hehe Thanks for pointing that out. Btw, I didn’t make that up myself, that’s what I read from the product page. :D

    uhm, might want to rethink your math on this.
    500 times larger would mean a normal ear bud ~3/8″ (or ~1 cm in diameter) would be over 15 feet or (5 meters!) in diameter.

    i’m sure the name has nothing to do with the projected size relationship.

    it is a funny idea and they are big, just not as big as you claim.
