iWalk -- Cool or Not?

Geek's buddy Popgadget just recently posted about the iWalk which is headphones that allow you to slip a first- or second-generation iPod nano into the iWalk's dedicated slot and go. One thing comes to mind, "Look ma, no hands!" Hold on to your gym shorts though. It's not available yet but when it is, it will retail for about $60.

Besides it looking kind of funny, the iWalk could be useful at the gym or while jogging at the park or when jamming to Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff on your boom box back in 1983...

Still, I am wondering what you guys think -- iWalk, cool or not?

I'm actually kinda liking it - something new to try out :) As long as I get to hear my music...

I actually don't like armbands because they're either too tight on my arm or they feel insecure and like the mp3 player is going to slip out. And my workout clothes never have enough pockets, plus I hate having heavy stuff bounce around, so any alternative to those for holding my player, I'm all for.

Well, I don't mind. But what if I fall and hit my head? Or something.

I agree with first comment, looks uncomfortable and I can't imagine being able to change a tune easily with that on. I have the armband and at first glance, I think that is easier to work with than this. Also, it sort of reminds me of headgear!

What about those armbands you can buy online at the ipod store? Aren't those less than $30?

I think they are cool but I doubt I'll ever be sporting it. Cool idea though--I always like things that stand out though. ~Melissa

So I guess these celebs with the huge earphones were on to something??? I think this is dumb. Technology is supposed to make things more user friendly (like small unobtrusive ear pieces). I guess this is just all part of the retro movement.

I think The Man would like these. My iPod fits in the cup holder of my elliptical...his he can't find a good place for (he has nano). He came up with an arm strap, but I really think he would like these (in the privacy of our own home, of course!)
