Thanko's Vonia bone conducting earphones

It's official: bone conduction technology just jumped the shark. Meet the Vonia bone conduction headset from the makers of such items as USB slippers and USB hubs for pirates -- Thanko. These skull rattlers won't work underwater and they won't enhance your gaming skillz much... but they might be of some benefit to the hearing impaired for the ¥9,800 (about $82) required to strap a set on. Want noise cancellation? Just add earplugs. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
