The Good The GoStereo Tune In Tune Out Headphones are inexpensive and offer two gadgets for the price of one: a set of headphones and a pair of speakers.

The Bad The GoStereo Tune In Tune Out Headphones suffer from cheap construction and only offer average sound quality.

The Bottom Line The GoStereo Tune In Tune Out Headphones are a good choice for anyone who wants a device that will satisfy a personal listening experience and allow for the sharing of tunes on the fly.

An MP3 player is mostly a personal music device, but it also provides a great way to share music with others or even--in a pinch--satisfy your home stereo needs. To satisfy both the personal- and public-listening experiences, logic dictates you need two separate gadgets: a pair of headphones and a set of speakers. Or you could pick up GoStereo's Tune In Tune Out Headphones, which combine the two into one handy (and simple) device. The headphones sound about average and the speaker quality is only so-so, but the super fair price of $50 for a 2-in-1 product makes the whole concept easy to swallow.

On first glance, the Tune In Tune Out Headphones don't look any different than your average full-size set, although it is immediately apparent where costs were cut. The adjustable headband is constructed of cheap plastic, has no padding, and feels prone to breakage after minimal wear and tear. Despite this, the headphones are reasonably comfortable, with cushy earcups that don't put an inordinate amount of pressure on the jaw base. A single, super thick cable descends from the right cup and terminates in a gold-plated, 3.5mm straight plug.

Closer inspection of the Tune In Tune Out will reveal two external speakers: one built into the outside of each earcup. A battery compartment that takes two AAA cells (not included) is built into the left earcup, while the right houses buttons for volume and powering on the speaker. When the power is on, music comes through the speakers; when off, the unit functions as regular headphones. Simple as that.
