Panasonic RP-HJE 130 earbuds are probably not the highest quality earphones on the block, but their packaging is great, and really, presentation is half the sell. Chalk it up to the Berlin design group Scholz & Friends, who created the musical design. It’s almost Apple-esque, don’t you think? In fact, I’m surprised they didn’t think of it first. Though those would definitely be white.
