Your ear is fraught with danger. Make sure your headphones are rugged.
Fukushima is still leaking into the Pacific. Deadly cosmic rays are sneaking through the ozone hole. That spider you just saw? Radioactive to the core. Soon you'll be gaining powers and popping metal spikes out of your ears. Better get some good headphones ASAP.
Headphones that offer good sound AND have a rugged design are gonna be perfect when you have to go on the run from the giant robots that work for a corrupt government that opposes people like you. Not to mention, the 3.5mm input will work with pretty much any modern jack, and that will come in handy when you start traveling in time. Like, if you wind up back in 1987? Don't sweat it! Same plug!
Of course, when facing down an evil neon-pink octagon or some kind of burning space-bird, these headphones will be useless, but don't worry, they'll both be ret-conned away before they can damage the 3-button microphone. Such is the life of a mutated hero.
