Skullcandy Headphones $39.95

Ever miss an important call because you were listening to your portable media player? I have; fortunately it didn’t cost me a consulting gig. Vibrate never seems to notify me when I need it most. Skullcandy solves that problem, linking the headset jack on your cell phone and the headphone jack on your portable media player via a common headphone connection. Three varieties are available, with support for all cell phone headset types. Get earbud headphones, back-of-the-headphones, or a standalone jack which lets you choose your own headset. I opted for the third option, because I already have several sets of headphones.
