Stereo Neckphones keep your music nearby

If you thought that Bluetooth headsets made people look ridiculous, you’ll just love this gadget.  Instead of listening to headphones like a normal person or just buying a portable speaker you could have these Stereo Neckphones.  They hang onto you like a set of headphones would, but make it so you can be aware of your environment like having portable speakers.  It’d be the best of both worlds if it didn’t make you look incredibly foolish.

Not to mention the fact that you’ll be that annoying person that wanders around playing their music so that everyone is stuck listening to it.  This device works just like a set of headphones would.  It just requires you to plug in your MP3 player through the 3.5mm plug.  The cord itself is 36 inches long.  In order to keep the neckphones powered you’ll need two AA batteries, which will keep it going for 15-30 hours.  You can purchase this gadget for $129.95 through Hammacher Schlemmer.

  1. It’s not a bad idea at all, especially for cyclists. I bike 24k each day to work and back, and would NEVER (unlike other idiots I pass) cycle while wearing headphones. Something like this would be ideal, and I hardly think the volume would disturb anyone.

    But $130 US for a teeny pair of amplified speakers? F no. Where’s my soldering iron?

  2. Reminds me of the old ” Bone Phones ” of years back. Still a great ideal.Keeps your ears open for safty too. Wonder if you can “feel” the music? I agree with other poster, a little pricey for my taste.
