If these only had a pass through they would be perfect!
However I have been looking for something like this forever.

iPod tough? When did they start making those?
Touch*, I’ll assume.
If so, I might pick one up. Sound like a fun experiment. I wonder if they would work with Shazam (app). Any experiences out there?
Now if only they had a small camera that would plug into the iPod touch so I could use What the Font mobile like the iphone users…

I have a friend who would probably eat those if he ran out of party supplies.

Where is the gawd damn ‘add to cart’ button? Am I going mad?

Is it just me, or does the concept of a mini microphone seem a little bit redundant? Cool product none the less.

Are these actually available?

I can’t tell you how happy I was to see this listed on the updates for the week. The product is super cool, but what really made my day was the fact I found these last week. I feel like I scooped the newspaper, even if my readership is only currently limited to myself. :)
I’ll be interested to see this popping up in the news under “Office Espionage” in the months ahead.
