Swimmers aren't the only ones who need head-mounted MP3 players. Terrestrial adventurers who also could use some audio inspiration can now turn to Shred Ready's Freestyle Audio helmet player with earflap speakers, which Red Ferret says would be ideal for "submerging, crashing, bashing and all things energetic." But for $200, we thought they could do a little better with the headgear's design, which looks like a cross between a London bobby helmet and standard issue for World War II paratroopers. Then again, that may be the appropriate fashion for playing tank paintball.
