thanko strap earphones

Straps that feature integrated earphones are nothing new to us (see: iPod shuffle, Toshiba gigabeat), yet Thanko went ahead and decided to make them a product of their own. The "MobilePhone STRAP DESIGN EARPHONE" doesn't really have a whole lot to do with mobile phones, but does offer the "rest" of us a chance to suspend our portable audio players from our neck. It features a detachable buckle, key hook, and is available in red and black versions for around 1,780 yen ($15 USD) in Japan.
