Each is one-of-a-kind and will vary.

Headphones are ornamental, not functional.

This is very unattractive, but I do appriciate the fact that money goes to charity.

I agree it's a cute concept. But executed poorly. Not cute. People won't get it and just think it's unattractive.

What's the point of this? It is just another thing to collect dust. It also is not attractive.

While I like the whole idea of supporting Art Aids Art, this just doesn't do it for me. I'd rather send a $25 check to a charity instead of have this hanging anywhere in my home.

I like the cause, but it looks too much like clutter to be something I would spend money on.

The catalog is about having different things and I think this is a perfect example of that and a good cause. Conversation starter for sure.

If I hung this somewhere, people would be grabbing the headphones to use them. Fine as part of a show in a gallery somewhere, but would not buy this.
