When it comes to buying gadgets and electronics there's always going to be compromise. To get the features you want, you'll have to learn to live with things you don't. Take these headphones, for example. For just $US20, they probably don't sound amazing, but the inline remote and mic is shaped like an adorably tiny Game Boy. A fair trade-off if I ever heard one.
There's also some fun irony here given these headphones will probably be used with a smartphone, the most popular device for portable gaming these days. But it's important to never forget our bleep bloop roots. [Amazon Japan via GoNintendo]
