180S Exolite Groove Sport Headphones

When the temperature drops, you no longer have to choose between headphones and earmuffs. The 180S Exolite Groove Sport Headphones are actually two products wrapped in a single package: One is a Sony Sports MP3 player with 4GB of storage (about 8 hours of music playback) built into the earbuds so you don’t have to worry about wires getting tangled. The second is a pair of ear warmers that slip over the ear buds of the Sony Player. What’s really smart is that the headband fits around the back of your head so you can easily top it off with a hat. Remove the ear warmers, and the MP3 player is great in summer, too—it’s waterproof, so you listen to music while swimming.
