LAKE WORTH, Fla. -- Popping in your ear buds and escaping into your playlist is addicting enough, but one company wants to make sure you really get hooked.
A Florida-based tech company called Nervana has created headphones they claim will stimulate the release of dopamine in your brain, making you feel high.
The headphones have a device that'll deliver a low power electrical signal through your ear canal, which triggers the dopamine, a brain chemical that allows us to have feelings of enjoyment or bliss; and it gets even better!
According to Nervana, the delivery of the electrical signals syncs up to whatever beat you're listening to or you can select an ambient mode which syncs up to your surroundings so if you're at a club or concert, you can get high during the live performance (legally, of course).
Now, what might sober you up is the price for these bad boys. They'll set you back nearly $300! And while we're talking sober thoughts, the company does not recommend driving while under the influence of their headphones. In fact, their official advice is to stay off the road for at least 30 minutes.
So if you want to listen to the latest hits while feeling like you just took one, you'll be able to pick up Nervana's headphones when they go on sale next month.
