Apple Planning "Ultrasonically Welded Structures" AKA Unibody Headphones

By Gary Cutlack on at

Apple has applied for a patent that would allow it to start selling "unibody" headphones, which would be constructed by welding their parts together then sanding away the joins.

The patent would give the headphones the appearance of "a seamless unibody structure" once finished, making them appear as if they were magically created out of stone by those genius Foxconn employees, also allowing buyers of the year's updated iPhone to let everyone bloody well know about it.
