Bone Conduction Shuffle Headband

Mat Lu

Apparently in an effort to produce even crappier-sounding music than earbuds, Japanese manufacturer Thanko is preparing to offer this VONIA bone conduction "Sports HeadBand," which is designed to work particularly well with the new iPod shuffle. Electronista is reporting that the headband will not not have to sit directly over your ears in order to transmit those high beat rate tunes directly through your hard noggin, thus leaving you free to hear that dump truck on your morning run.

I'm not so sure about this one, but they go on sale in Japan soon for about $84. It's not clear if they're coming Stateside.
