Schizophone is a pair of disorientation headphones. It proposes acoustic prosthesis altering one's listening habits, revealing how our ears are continuously used not only as communication devices but also as orientation tools. The two cones focus on sounds coming from each side of the listener. By both amplifying sounds and splitting perception of left and right ears, the Schizophone creates a strange stereophonic effect on the soundscape and reveals soft sounds usually unheard. By its unusual way of moving and specific listening postures, the user modifies its attitude and relationship to space.
