Has anyone already done these headphones? Who has experience?
Can they all do, and how much will it cost?

Seems like a great way to keep the ear hairs trimmed.

High voltages and high frequencies right next to your head? What could possibly go wrong?

Just saw these bad boys in passing and if the headphones above don't cut off your circulation, these will http://tablets.engadget.com/photos/nox-audio-admiral-touch-hands-on/

The headphones themselves are really good quality and well made.

Let me know if this helps.

Ha ha. Well electrostatic headphones like Stax Lamdba models, and Omerga models too like the SR-007 or $5,000 SR-009 have 580 volt DC bias "right next to your ear" and I'm not aware that anyone's ever gotten a shock etc from these.

My concern would be HEAT. These plasma cells produce heat. Not burn-your-ears heat, but I would think you'd be sweating your brains out after a while. My ears get hot from regular over-the-ear headphones, and that's just from body heat.
