iFreeplay headphones dock your iPod Shuffle -- upside down

Monster'a iFreePlay headphones are among a small number of models taking advantage of the size of the iPod shuffle, and incorporating a dock for the diminutive music player into the headphones.

You need to supply the iPod shuffle, of course--either the second-generation or third-generation iPod shuffle clip-on versions will work, but not the original "pack of gum" version.

Having it connected directly to the headphones cuts cords out of the equation, effectively turning the iFreePlay into a set of "cordless" headphones that don't require the high-tech wizardy of Bluetooth, or other wireless method.

Since the headphones are powered by the iPod shuffle, no additional battery is needed--which is a big plus. (Obviously, you'll still need to make sure the iPod shuffle is juiced.)

The Monster iFreePlay headphones ($50) have an around-the-back-of-the-neck ("street-style") design. They fit securely on your ears, are comfortable to wear, and don't mess with your hair.

While they're not exactly sweat resistant (the foam earpads absorb moisture), they are perfect for the gym. It's nice not to worry about a dangling cord snagging on something and getting in the way of your workout.

The only problem is with the iPod shuffle sticking out of the left earpiece: you're going to end up looking pretty dorky, particularly if your iPod shuffle's color doesn't match the silver color of the headphones. (If you've ever seen someone headphones with integrated radios, you'll get the picture--and it's not pretty).

Once you slip the iPod shuffle into the dock (it fits securely), you'll notice that the iPod shuffle is upside down. That's important to note because, if you're trying to blindly navigate tracks or raise and lower volume while you're wearing the headphones, the buttons will be reversed. The Shuffle's orientation makes it a bit awkward to control the Shuffle at first.
