Vibe Body Sound Headphones Let You Hear Music And Environment

Vibe Body Sound Headphones: Love It or Leave It?

I'm still pretty haunted by the Australian ad campaign that raises awareness about iPod-listening traffic victims. These Vibe Body Sound Headphones would solve that problem by allowing you to experience the vibrations of the music, while leaving your ear canal totally open to hear the dangers of the outside world. That way, you're still rocking out, but you'll know when a car is screeching toward you or your boss is standing over you with a question.If the music is uncompromised, I think these headphones are pretty genius. My main concern is how they look and feel — I know they're not as bad as these wireless headphones, but the component resting on the back of my ear could look both funny and feel uncomfortable. They just might be the next wave in safe digital life though. What do you think, worth the $100 from Think Geek, or will you just be turning your music down a little lower?

If these were wireless, I would be sold (I do love my Bluetooth headphones). They would be like the geekiest clip-on earrings ever!

When you're crossing a road, don't you take precautions by looking both ways using your EYES? I really don't understand how an Ipod can hinder a person's road crossing-abilities unless they're really stupid. I guess it's just nature sorting itself out.

I'll leave it. I have an iPod hook up in my car. I don't need headphones.

I have my tragii pierced, which makes earbuds either uncomfortable, or not fit well. I would love to try these out.

One would really have to try them out before throwing $100 on them.

I hardly use my mp3 player because I don't like sticking that ear bud in my ear. When I would use it, I would let it dangle from my ear, which probably did look silly, but I didn't care b/c I'm trying to hang on to my hearing for life. I have a thing w/ my ears anyway.

I'll pass. I'm just going to turn my music down - it looks like it'd be uncomfortable. And, more importantly, isn't it just common sense not to listen to your music full blast when you're out in public?
