It's hard for me to believe that the big old headphones that covered your entire ears-and most of your head-are making a comeback! And some for over $400! But I can't see myself with a big headset connected to my ipod as I'm running or walking down the street!
And that brings me to my next gift! How about a nice set of high quality earbuds, (also known as "in-ear" headphones)? That would make an awesome Christmas present! I mostly use mine for my ipod (another great gift idea, by the way) when I go for a run or walk.
I also use them a lot when I'm on my laptop when I want to listen to music, movies or You Tube without bothering everyone around me. Hint: Make sure the cord is long enough.
Nowadays many gyms have televisions on their cardio machines, and for obvious reasons (ear germs, ya know...) it's BYOB (Bring Your Own Buds).
Of course, it goes without saying that earbuds are ideal for use with cell phones.
And in case someone reading this is looking to buy me a gift...I saw an amazing set of "iSport immersion buds", with little hooks over the ear to stay secure, plus sweatproof, waterproof, and washable....in pink :)
