We've seen quite a few bone-conducting headphones, and apart from a couple pricey exceptions, they've all brought the ugly pretty fierce -- enough so that we were actually surprised when we saw these new Outi headshakers from Zelco and didn't immediately flinch. The active headphones clip onto the back of your ears and transmit sound through the skin and cartilage, creating what the company calls a "sensual new surround sound." We're not exactly sure what that means, but it's generated by a battery-powered amp that runs for six to eight hours on a 90-minute charge, and it's yours now $110 in limited quantities.
