In the street or at the beach, Pod à porter is the easiest way to wear your music - even if you’re not wearing much.


No more wire-tangle, earphones dangling by your knees, or ripping buds from your ears when you take off your jacket.


Precision manufactured from tough, but flexible, 3D-printed polyamide, Pod à porter is ultralight and has a finely textured surface finish; each ordered product is printed out just for you. It fits the iPod shuffle 3d generation, leaving all controls accessible.

Pod à porter

neckband for iPod shuffle 3d generation

As mp3-players got smaller, until they practically had no controls on them anymore - especially in the case of the iPod shuffle - I always wondered if the archetype had stayed behind a little, only getting smaller.


I thought that what you need is just the earbuds, and a simple shape to keep them on your body - just like glasses are nothing more than an elegant way to keep lenses near your eyes. The result is this jewelry-like iPod shuffle accessory.
