Historically, on single-sided headphones, the cord comes out of the left earpiece. I've always assumed it is so that right-handed people are less likely to get tangled up in the cable as they write. Well, the folks at NOCS
have released a new on-ear headphone (NS700 Phaser
) with the cable coming out of the right earpiece. I've heard through the grapevine that they claim it's because right-handed people can more easily get to the remote controls that way.
Part of me wants to tell NOCS to sit down in the boat and put the cable on the left where it belongs. Part of me thinks their reasoning is sound. Part of me thinks it just doesn't matter. But the biggest part of me just doesn't know what to think. What do you think?
Oh, and being left-handed I feel kinda jilted.
