We Have a Winner!!! Sony’s “Extra Bass” Headphone Girls Ranked and Rated

Sony Japan’s promotional dancing headphone girls – or Headphone Joshi as they’re known in Japan – have been with us for over a week now, whirling around and wowing us with both their dance moves and über cuteness.

As part of a promotion for its new line of “extra bass” headphones, Sony put together a YouTube page of its own featuring one girl from each of the 47 prefectures in Japan dancing before a camera to Avril Lavigne (why?) while listening to music through the new headphones.

It must be hard to be an Olympic athlete with all that pressure to perform with the eyes of the world watching you and asking you to do your very best in that one moment.  Not to mention that most of them are far from home in a strange land with strange customs.

For many, the best way to relax the mind and get reconnected to your homeland is by music.  And there’s no better way to deliver this acoustic tranquilizer than through a pair of the increasingly popular brand of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones.  Unfortunately, electronics giant Samsung wants to take those away from the athletes.
