Sound is made of invisible, energetic waves.
They are aesthetically beautiful and naturally immersive, as long as we can visualize them.
"Visualizing the invisibles sound waves"
"The Ripples" is designed for Mi In-Ear Headphones HD based on this concept.
Headphones are designed to be suspended by two curvy and frosted glass surfaces in different height in space. The mimic ripple textures are designed on the surface, in order to create the visualized experience of invisible sound waves that traveling trough the system, producing different kinds of immersive ripple effect.

The system contains six constructional parts:
The top plastic tube;
The curvy and frosted glass;
The transparent silicon headphone holders x 2;
