These Ryobi Smart Headphones will feed you tunes, protect your ears from loud noises (with a noise reduction of 25dB) and actively protect your ears from really loud noises. Designed for workers on loud construction sites, who can’t take their earphones off, these look like a great idea. They’ll amplify conversations that are nearby so you can hear them without removing the headphones and they’ll also suppress background noises and loud momentary sounds. They have a built-in rechargeable battery that will keep ticking for 24 hours continuous usage and they recharge in 5 hours. If no one’s looking you can also plug in your MP3 player via the headphone socket. US$69.97 from SkyMall.
