iHome iHMP5 headphones

iHome has released a set of full-ear headphones that sport an integrated in-line amplifier and can be converted into portable speakers rather than strictly operating in a private mode. The iHMP5 set includes a battery-powered, louder amplifier when users want to set it up in speaker mode while still providing a reduced amount of power at all times for regular headphone use. The 50mm (nearly 2 inches) drivers deliver the sound, and there is a volume control clip.

The speakers/headphones feature a common 3.5mm audio jack. Available in red, blue or silver, the iHMP5 can be purchased now, priced at $70.

    lawsuit

    I smell a lawsuit for the idiots who leave it in speaker mode and then use it as headphones.

    Ouch!

    The should build in a pressure sensor to determine if the headphones are actually pressed against someone's head.
