The iSoundCap is a baseball-style cap designed to hold an iPod nano or iPod shuffle. “The ingenuity of this cap places the iPod so that there are no wires hanging below the head,” says the maker of the iSoundCap. “Whether enjoying your music while being physically active or just relaxing, the wires will never get in your way and the iPod is safely tucked away. The design is extremely user friendly, allowing for easy access as well as control over the iPod during any activity.” The iSoundCap is priced at $30.

I love the irony of a street style cap having the iPod out of your field of view. 

As the iPod economy grew, I feared the day that function eclipsed form.

That is kind of stupid. If you can’t physically “See” the iPod, basically any mugger can just sneak up behind you and steal your hat. Personally, I would rather use a lanyard and tuck the iPod under my shirt.

Actually, when you check out the “iSoundCap in action” and see that most of the pictures are of people working out w/ the cap, it makes perfect sense.

Well I just think the design looks lame… but if they had a better looking version I bet it would be cool for use during a work out or especially while playing tennis.Situations where you are not in a large crowd b/c of how easy it would be for someone to just snatch your iPod and bolt.

If you check out any companies website their marketing and fake testimonials can make a bag of #### look like it’s a viable product.

Mixing fashion and ipods don’t really go that well. The lanyard for the nano is all you really need.

At work! At the gym! While cooking dinner!

...seriously, poeple don’t wear hats that much anymore!

besides, it looks super dorky

This just stirs up old memories of people getting their hats snatched off their heads, when we were in middle school. Only now I’m an adult and the (ugly) hat has a $300 device attached to it.

Hmm… maybe it should come with a chinstrap.

ipod or made for ipod branded accesories are now becoming a joke.

I’ve always had trouble working out with the wires all over the place. This makes perfect sense. I Love it!!

I always looked for something like this (something to keep wires out of the way)... I’m actually glad somebody thought of it and I look forward to try one. Has anybody used it?

Actually the pocket has a window for controls and is more practical to do your morning jogging without having your ipod on the hand but on the hat or to have your hands free to keep your kids safe. smile
