Eternal fashion for retro: the return of wired headphones

Fashion is an attempt to tell a story through your appearance, a way of expressing yourself through things. Accordingly, many are in constant search, trying to stand out, showing their uniqueness and individuality.

Technique can also become an object for self-expression. And from time to time, things appear on the market that have bright features. However, usually manufacturers do not like to play such games. Indeed, despite the fact that people dream of standing out (and modern culture pushes to be an individual), everyone is equally afraid of becoming an object of criticism. A bright design often provokes harsh judgments. He may like it or, conversely, cause strong rejection.

In the world of cars, a good example is the Nissan Juke, about which we published material on our website. Originally conceived as a car for single men with a good income living in the city, due to the extraordinary design of the Juke, it has continued to cause seething around the world for more than 10 years.

In electronics, manufacturers most of all do not like to experiment with household appliances. This is perhaps the most conservative category, where white and gray colors are considered conditionally acceptable. It can be noted Samsung, which is trying to flirt with millennials and generation Z. So, the BESPOKE line makes it possible to customize the appearance of equipment.

For example, at IFA 2019, the company showed that a refrigerator does not have to be boring, and offered a variety of color schemes.

However, time has shown that most people are not ready for such bright experiments. Two years later, Bespoke refrigerators are being sold worldwide. And what do we see? The site offers to choose a refrigerator "in your style": classic white, beige, steel or any other inconspicuous color.

And do not think that this is only for Russia, so that everything is conservative. The picture is the same in the USA and in Europe.

Retro fashion is becoming socially acceptable and even somewhat approved. Everything is involved here: from cars to electronics. Apparently, the calculation of what used to be better.

Review of the smartphone Samsung Galaxy A22s 5G (SM A226B/DSN)

A niche smartphone with 5G support for minimal money - it's not even on the Samsung website, but it's sold in Russia. Compare with Galaxy A22 - is it worth the money?

Kia Picanto test. The last of the city cars

Somehow imperceptibly, almost all compact city cars left Russia, which replaced compact class sedans and liftbacks like Hyundai Solaris and Skoda Rapid. There are always two real city cars left on our market, this is the hero of our material Kia Picanto and Chevrolet Spark, along with its counterpart under the Ravon brand.

TCL TW30 MoveAudio S600 TWS headphones review

Any decent smartphone manufacturer is bound to offer their own TWS headset with them. So TCL introduced in December on the Russian market not only a flagship smartphone, but also a flagship headset. Let's see what happened ...

For example, in the penultimate film about 007, James Bond, who decides to retire, takes with him not a modern sports car, but an elderly 1963 Aston Martin DB5. Of course, the car is rebuilt, but it is unlikely that it has the same level of comfort and sound insulation as the current models. But this is such a conscious choice of a gentleman who prefers the classics.

However, few people can afford Aston Martin, but they want to stand out. Turntables have become a retro fashion for the masses. For many years now, sales of records, amplifiers and players around the world have been growing. Vinyl fans talk about the warm tube sound, a special atmosphere, they say that they perceive the process of playing records as a kind of ritual.

It's funny that vinyl isn't the only one trying to get back to the future. For 2021, US cassette sales are up 33%. And here arguments about general aesthetics come into play: it's nice to hear the hiss of the film, watch the wheels spin, it's nice to realize the fragility of the film and cassette, as this makes you treat it even more carefully.

Others say that cassettes are "more human" than CDs or electronic music. What makes it even more appealing is that anyone can record their own tape at home. It's easier than with a CD. Here, they say, you just need to insert a cassette and press the Record button. No computer games.

And you can also have a cassette, like vinyl records. This is not some set of bytes on the media, but a real thing.

One of the factors in the return of fashion for cassettes was the film "Guardians of the Galaxy", where the main character listens to a recording made by his mother. At the same time, the question is sidestepped, where did he get a spaceship with a cassette deck.

It's scary to imagine, but perhaps someday VHS will return to fashion. People will begin to romanticize the stripes on the screen that occur when rewinding a video cassette ...

It often becomes fashionable what goes against mass taste and preferably has exclusivity. For example, Starbucks in the United States became fashionable when it began to offer consumers types of coffee that were different from the typical brew from a liter teapot. In turn, Starbucks lost out to mini-coffee shops where the barista roasts unique rare coffee from a certain mountainside located in Shangri-la, harvested without violence against nature and workers.

In 2021, most smartphones got rid of the 3.5 mm jack. And this is no longer a protest. Even on my own example, I can say that more than a year has passed since the last time I used wired headphones.

The turning point in consumer consciousness occurred in 2016 with the release of Apple AirPods, and since then, the share of Bluetooth headphones has been growing in the world every year and sales of wired ones have been declining.
