They are a 1-star item produced by Forge and come with the primary ability Ink Saver (Main).

This piece of gear was available since the start of Chill Season 2022.


The Ocho OctoPhones Blancos come with Ink Saver (Main) as the primary ability when purchased from a shop or ordered from Murch. When purchased from SplatNet 3, they come with any other primary ability normally available to Headgear. As a 1-star item, the Ocho OctoPhones Blancos come with two additional slots for secondary abilities. The star level may be increased with Super Sea Snails for 1 (first), 1 (second), 5 (third), 10 (fourth), or 20 (fifth) Super Sea Snails per star, or by purchasing additional copies of them from Naut Couture for 10,000 (first), 30,000 (second), 50,000 (third), 100,000 (fourth), or 200,000 (fifth) Cash per star. Increasing the star level to 2 stars will add another secondary ability slot for a total of three slots. Increasing the star level beyond 2 stars will increase the gear experience gained by a cumulative 3.333…% up to 10% additional experience at 5-star level. Since they are made by the Forge gear brand, they have a higher chance of rolling Special Power Up and a lower chance of rolling Ink Saver (Sub) to fill their secondary ability slot.




Ocho is Spanish for the number eight, referencing the figure-8 shape on both sides of the headphones. Blancos is Spanish for white (when applied to a plural noun).

Translation notes

  1. Mimi tako is short for 耳にたこができる mimi ni tako ga dekiru (literally "callus in one's ears", a pun on たこ tako meaning both "octopus" and "callus"), a Japanese idiom which means the speaker no longer wants to hear something.
  2. 2.0 2.1 BL comes from blanco ("white")
