Moving on to goodie bag item #2 from the Podcast Academy speakers bag, I've got EarThumps by Griffin Technology in my ears:
"EarThumps are earbuds that are designed to isolate your listening experience from outside sound by fitting comfortably inside the ears, to deliver rich, crystal clear audio."My ears don't hurt. Those iPod earbuds are not hte most comfortable thing ever designed. These EarThumps are. They are pretty comforatble and are pretty much isolating me from all the surrounding sounds in my office.
I'll make sure to take these along on an airplane the next time I take a flight. At a list price of $19.99, they're a sweet deal.
