Flips Headphones/Speakers Hybrid

HD headphones flip into powerful speakers.


Flips Headphones rock in 2 modes: solo or social.
  • Lightweight, over-ear design
  • 40mm neodymium drivers deliver crisp, high-def sound
  • Simply flip earcups outward to change into speakers
  • Unique technology amplifies sound in speaker mode
  • Safety flip feature disables amp when pointed at ears
  • Compact, folding design with custom vented earcups
  • Plush memory foam padding on every contact surface
  • USB rechargeable Lithium-Polymer battery
  • Charging cable and carry case included
Just flip the earcups outward for big sound!
Now everyone can hear what you’re listening to. When the earcups on your Flips Headphones flip out, so will your friends–because these plush, memory-foam padded headphones instantly convert to speakers with big amplified sound! Enjoy crisp, hi-def audio in solo mode, or turn the 40mm neodymium speakers loose so that everyone can hear them. And when you’re done, you simply fold them up into the convenient carry case.

Supercharged audio for up to 3 hours.
Compatible with any device featuring a standard 3.5mm audio jack, FLIPS™ Audio Headphones have a rechargeable 500mAH Li-Po battery that drives 2-3 hours of continuous play in speaker mode. To recharge, just plug the included charging cord into any USB device. Or you can listen solo without battery power, and the Safety Flip feature will disable the amplifier to protect your ears. With its lightweight folding design and carry case, you can take great listening anywhere... and share it anytime.

You’ll flip for these headphones–order from Brookstone today!

Flipaudio headphones offer a stylish and comfortable design as well as exceptionally crisp audio response with a TWIST. Sound quality is mostly balanced, with warm mids and thumping bass. Included is a nice carrying case and a huge surprise! just flip the speakers & bam! they turn into a mini stereo! By far the coolest pair of headphones I've laid my hands on. simply charge with a USB & go. great for all things outdoor.

I tried to use them as headphones. I did. It didn't work out. They sounded as if they were underwater or in an extremely large room, with a loud echo and detrimental sound distortion. I just couldn't deal with it! As speakers, however, I could say they're pretty good. Not anywhere near the best, and not worth my time or money because I'm not looking for speakers, but these can go loud enough to break glass! So, if you're someone who likes to break glass, or if you're itching to share music with your friends, then these are a decent idea for you.

        There are terrible and fell apart and stopped working and no one would offer help because it was right after the 90 days. These should have lasted more than a few months.

            Comments about Flips Headphones/Speakers Hybrid:

            Plain and simple, sound quality is absolutely terrible. Sound is muffled and unclear. As a speaker they are usable, the headphones are probably the worst on the market.

                  I have not had the chance to use these much but so far they are pretty good. I'm not sure how often I will have the need to go from headphone to speaker but we will see.

                      Paid extra for two day shipping product arrived a week later. Brookstone missed the deadline for UPS so that made it fall onto the weekend shipping and was delayed. Product arrived while we were out of town and neighbor picked it up. So it was late!
