You Can't Hide Your Lyin' Ears
Many products call themselves "ear buds." Only Ear Buddies are really ears. (OK, not real ears, but they look real enough to get double-takes.) Ear Buddies are compatible with your smart phone (except iPhone 7 or later), tablet, or any electronic device with a standard 3mm headphone jack.
Are you curious...?
The outer ear ("auricle") evolved to collect and focus sound waves. As a prominent part of your head, its appearance has always mattered. Most European cultures, for example, consider protruding ears unattractive; surgery to change their appearance ("otoplasty") was first described in 1881. People have been adorning their ears with jewelry for thousands of years. Some cultures value large earlobes and encourage people to stretch and enlarge them. Humans and some other apes have vestigial muscles in their ears, relics of evolutionary forebears who rotated their ears instead of turning their heads (most monkeys can't do that). Some people retain enough control over these muscles to wiggle their ears or even point them in various directions, and other people can learn some measure of control.
