 Ordinarily I am not critical of any of these gadgets, but this appears to be way more work than required to achieve the same effect. What would be great is headphone that turn themselves of when someone wants to talk to the wearer. I do not know when it became the rule that you had to have some noise in one's ears 24/7. Okay I usually have the radio or pandora playing when I work, but I am in an office by myself and do turn them off when people come in.

Come up with head phone that shock the youthful wearer when they use them to igmore parents and you got a winner.

 I agree, this is really cool and the hoodie idea is a real keeper.  I have an EE friend working for TVA who spends a great deal of time inspecting power stations.  He would really appreciate this concept--warmth plus "tunes".  Great post.

Tool_maker,

 I like that idea....have a mic that picks up voices and such and mutes the volume. It would come in handy when the phone rings! Well, since I don't listen to headphones much...it would be nice to plug in the sound to a device and when the phone rings it mutes it. Just a thought for the gadget guys.

If it did it on the first ring I wouldn't miss a call. That's another plus.
