These odd, but quite stylish, headphones from Outi will allow you to feel the music in a whole new way by sending out vibrations through your bones.
The Vibe Body Sound headphones clip on to your outer ear and conduct vibrations through your skin and cartilage. Those vibrations rumble through your skull directly to your inner ear where you hear them clear as a bell. All the while, your ear canal remains uncovered, allowing the sounds from the environment access as well. Carry on conversations and never skip a beat.
- Standard 3.5mm jack, fits most major portable audio devices
- Built in lithium ion battery charges in 90 minutes via USB, gives 6 to 8 hours of listening pleasure
- 3 switchable levels of vibration strength. Low, Medium, and Tectonic!
You can get the Vibe Body Sound Headphones for $99.99 from ThinkGeek.

Gotta say that while the idea is super neat. I had a chance to try a couple of “headphones” that work in a similar fashion, and unfortunately they really sound quite awful when compared to a descent pair of traditional headphones. They are pretty cool though.
I can imagine it is. As for me, I always use in-ear models.
