Headphones? Hat? With Burton's Headphone Beanie, you don't have to choose when venturing out into the cold. The Headphone Beanie is a cozy wool hat featuring a pair of headphones integrated into its earflaps. An inline control lets you adjust the volume when your iPod is hidden deep inside your jacket or pack. With better sound than you'd expect from such a package, the Headphone Beanie lets you enjoy your tunes in any weather, whether you're speeding down the slopes or sitting at the bus stop.

Tip: The Beanie's heaadphone speakers are removable, so you can easily upgrade to better sounding 'phones. We recommend buying a pair of the excellent Koss KSC-35 or SportaPro ($20 each), which have removable earpieces that fit perfectly in the Headphone Beanie's earphone pouches.--Dan Frakes
