наушники - headphones (10th July 2011)

наушники [na-USH-ni-ki] (plural noun) – headphones, earphones, a headset

Ты не видел наушники от моего плейера? = Have you seen my player's earphones?

Я всегда слушаю музыку в наушниках. = I always listen to music in headphones.


"Наушники" comes from ""на" = on, and "уши" = ears, so literally it's something we put on our ears.
