Miniature speakers that you use as bar-end plugs. Bluetooth compatible, so you can listen to music from your Android while you ride.

Answer from our source: Classic bicycle horns, “These are interesting in that you squeeze the black rubber and it lets out a nice little horn sound. From the 1950 – 1960’s I think.”

Could be old school horns, or magnetic generator units for old school lights…
