iMuffs Bluetooth Headset; $180; www.wi-gear.com

Lee Corkran, Founder and CEO, BrightQube


I can't stand most of the Bluetooth headsets on the market today. It's bad enough that they make me look like a cyborg, but the sound quality is often poor. Not so with Wi-Gear's new iMuffs head-phones, which, despite the cutesy name, are truly ingenious. Since they're designed specifically for iPod users and can connect from as far as 30 feet away, I can simply pop the music player into my backpack, slip my cell phone into my pocket, and listen to music wirelessly without worrying about missing a call. Buttons on the outside of one earpiece control the volume and music functions. When a call comes in, the headphones automatically pause the song, and I just touch the "Play" button to answer the phone. Now I never get tangled up in cords while listening to tunes, and I don't miss calls because I'm fumbling around trying to pause the iPod while grabbing for my cell.
