    Today is the day the headphone becomes "smart" with the launch of Muzik, an innovative company inspired to transform the way music is experienced.  Muzik, founded by disruptive innovator...

    It´s really funny that technology gets smarter and people dumber. Not so funny to me is this desire to share. People must be getting really lonely to share everthing they do.

    WHY THE F would I want to do this, do they think others actually give a crap about what music you are listening to?
    kids these days think they are the center of the universe.

    And they'll probably be the last after they are sued out of existence by the RIAA for illegally sharing music

    This. People used scripts with mIRC (well, WinAmp and so) to post stuff about what they were listenning. Then automated scripts which posted every song which started playing.

    That was annoying. Really something which gets annoying very fast.

    Nah I will pass on these. I can't see the majority using this. I can see some facebook and twitter fanatics using this. To me this is a lazy form of people not using a keyboard and mouse to share information such as music. Also this would remind me of using Yahoo voice chat a few years back talking about sports and the like and some moron would use the voice chat function to spam some stupid crappy song. I do not care what music anyone is listening to.

    While I really like some "social features" of current music services, I'd pass on these. Product separation and isolation are important if you care.

    For example, I use Spotify - it's really great that you can check what your friends are listening to, give and receive recommendations, get radio suggestions, follow regular people and artists. However, I wouldn't want that in my headphones nor built in a playback device.
    If one day I decide I don't like Spotify, I'll install another service on my phone - it's as easy as that. And if I decide I want another phone (music source device), I'll buy another one without changing the service nor headphones. And headphones? Recently I got Westone UM-3X and I love them, they're unbelievable. I can't imagine replacing them just to change the sound provider. That would be just stupid.

    However for people who do not really care and would like to be provided with 1-button cruise control, that might be and interesting device.

    People are really becoming lonely and dumb it seems. What's this whole thing about (virtually)sharing and connecting? Do all these guys who have 100s of friends online think that others actually give a $h.t? Think the world needs something bad to happen for people to understand what really is important and who their friends are. Pity it will probably have to be the WW3..
