If you've been aching to scratch the fairly niche itch of giving yourself an Elven makeover while listening to music at the same time, Japanese Akihabara-based retailer Thanko may be offering your two-birds-with-one-stone chance with these "Elf Earphones"--a set of earphones that let you slip on pointy elf ears.

The fantasy-themed earphones have an instant appeal to cosplayers and fans of all things Elven, but can also make for just a quirky aesthetic when listening to your tunes.

The earphones boast a quick and comfortable (supposedly) elf transformation, and are equipped with a toggle switch and mic. Unfortunately, they only appear to be available in one color at this point. Like many similar products, Thanko suggests the earphones as a fun gag to share pictures with your friends on social media, although we imagine cosplay enthusiasts and those who want to lounge around in Elf style will be the primary buyers.

Thanko has the Elf earphones priced at 1,980 yen ($17.52 USD) and only ships within Japan, but there are a variety of similar Elf Earphones readily available on Amazon as well.
