Design Annex iBeat Illuminating Headphones - Click Here for Details
These reasonably priced headphones light up when you press the power switch, and can pulse in response to the beat of your music. Five colors are available - the two we’ve tested thus far (blue and white) are surprisingly cool in person.

This new speaker system from Sharper Image synchronizes pulses of light to your music, using one of a series of detachable connectors called ZipConnect to connect to your iPod. A retractable headphone plug is shipped with the unit; charging ZipConnects for Dock Connector iPods and the iPod shuffle are sold separately.
