New Details About Those Spiffy Mega Man Headphones

Last week we broke news about EMIOS' Mega Man-inspired LED headphones. Other than the price, little information was available at the time. Fortunately, a pre-order e-mail going out to buyers brings new details to light.

Courtesy of The Mega Man Network:

Pre-order yours here!


  1. So 40 dollar headphones with a 60 dollar mark up for the style. Not bad gonna have to pass but not bad

  2. Just a PSA - you will not look like Megaman with these on. I know in your head you do, in my head I do, but you will not in real life.

  3. wait , if the audio cable is optional, does that mean it bluetooth?

    1. Judging from how they worded it, it probably means you can just disconnect the cable from the headphones to just wear them for their look.

  4. Off topic, but the helmet preorders got put on backstock so thinkgeek.com could sell some first

    1. I got off the phone with Crapcom customer service just a few minutes ago. The lady told me that shipments will start going out in the next few business days.

    2. I got mine today and it's too small for my XL-sized noggin. It hurt to take it off :(

  5. but they also mention rechargeable battery

  6. Not about this article, but a little related... So i pre-ordered the megaman helmet back in july, almost day one! And what capcom told me today? It's out of stock, and i must wait for restock.... seriously? You didn't plan any quantity before accepting pre-order? That's bullshit

    1. 'Only enough will be made to fill preorders'
      /sells first batch to thinkgeek.Com and laughs at those of us who preordered
