iMuffs: Wireless Bluetooth Headphones For iPod, Skype.

I’ve no idea how headphone and earphone cables get so knotted, even with careful use. What I do know is that with a pair of iMuffs, you won’t need to untie them any longer. These wireless headphones make use of a little Bluetooth transmitter that plugs into your iPod Nano, Classic, Touch, Mini and all latest-gen igadgets (iPhone works too but is not supported).

This neat set of cans look as cosy as earmuffs and feature playback and volume controls right on each earpiece…beware annoying people who may derive an almost sadistic pleasure in anonymously pausing or skipping your tracks in a crowd.

The iMuffs claim to deliver near-CD quality sound up to 10 meters away. Lets remember that only applies if you’re using a CD quality sound source, if you’re listening to MP3s, expect near-MP3 quality sound.

One great feature is the integration of a hidden microphone in the right side of the headphones, which can be used to take calls and for use on Skype. The iMuffs charge via USB and fetch around 16 hours of playback while the transmitter feeds off your iPod’s battery. You can pick up a set for $129.99 over at Wi-Gear.

wow this is really great.thax for sharing

I an looking desperately for a pair of what appears to be industrial hearing protection with a hidden access to attach my iPod. It must be wireless and have discrete controls. Please create this item because in my one factory alone I have about 500 people that would buy this product as hearing protection is allowed, but music is not. Thank you for you time.

Barry, I don’t manufacture products – but if there are any designers out there reading this, 500 units would sure make a great initial order.

Cool and also cool you sharing it with us. I’ll bear it in my mind.
