Monster Cable, the company that charges insane amounts of money for copper wires, actually came up with a fine idea for its iFreePlay headphones, silly name notwithstanding. The ‘phones are designed for the second generation iPod shuffle and connect directly to the diminutive portable audio player. That means there’s no cords to deal with, something that joggers will no doubt appreciate. The headphones wrap around the back of your head, further eliminating the need for clips and other widgets that get in the way of high intensity aerobic exercise. That they’re only $50 is most surprising. I didn’t think Monster Cable made anything that cost less than a small fortune.
