I think the Ear Muff Headphones are Gadget Freak worthy because of the construction build process Sylvie outlined in article. Also, gadgets are cool devices individuals create to solve problems. The ear muffs allow warmth in winter season while the headphones allow listening to your favorite music. This product has a wearable electronics theme which is Gadget Freak content!

i've watched teens customize their headphones for years.  These are cute but don't seem like Gadget Freak material.  But, most kids didn't use a soldering iron to make theirs.

@TunaFish#5 - What if we market these, not only as a muffle against cold temperatures, but as a way to dampen the cacophonous din of Global Warming prognosticators?  =]

This idea's got legs.  Probably wouldn't be profitable enough to self-mfr and sell at craft fairs or e-bay, but I'm sure there's a market for this.

Working against this product:  global warming.
