Wired Headphone Earmuffs Keep You Warm and Plugged In

FUNK-tional Wired Headphone Earmuffs
Honestly, I don't think much about really keeping warm unless I'm traveling to a cold climate. We don't get much in the way of inclement weather in San Francisco. But, I've spent enough time in wintery NYC/ Minneapolis/ Zurich to know that ear protection is key. Ear protection that also allows you to stay plugged in to your smart phone or music is genius.

These Wired Headphone Earmuffs from FUNK-tional, the same team behind CitySlips portable flats (um, how life-changing were those?), are so smart. They're cute and warm, which is exactly what you want from an earmuff, but they're also a functional technology accessory.

These earmuffs feature built-in speaker phones, detachable wire, inline microphone, and volume control. Yep, not your average earmuff, or your average headphone for that matter. You can use them to talk on the phone, hands-free, while keeping your ears toasty, or you can just listen to your iPod.

The FUNK-tional Headphone Earmuff is available exclusively at Neiman Marcus and comes in three colors -- black, white, and purple. Even if you, like me, don't live in an area that requires ear warming devices, consider these smart earmuffs as a gift for a friend that does. I can't imagine a more welcome gift choice.
