These headphones are designed with disposal in mind. Their reliance of mechanical connections in replacement of glue, allows for easier separation of parts for proper disposal. The whole assembly consists of only 6 parts.
The paper construction is extremely light weight and inexpensive to manufacture. The large open surfaces allow for labeling space for any company or for personal customization. An ideal market for these headphones will be airlines or museums who could provide these headphones for their customers who can easily dispose of them when finished or collapse them again for later use.
Since they are extremely light, they are very easy to transport and ship. Their compact size also allows for easy storage.
