Filling your head with sound just got more complicated. On-ear or over-the-ear headphones? Earbuds that hang in there (think Airpods) or the sort that you jam into your ear canal. Now there’s a hybrid solution.

Nura, a newish audio company, has unveiled its Nurpaphone ‘phones. They’re over-the-ear headphones and in-ear earphones.
