The beach would be great if it weren't for all those bothersome people. Now you can drown out the sound of surfers, hemp jewelry salesmen, the overly tan, and that guy who appears to be living out of a pup tent with this Beach Radio Headset, a hybrid pillow-radio that projects FM from either side of your head. This is actually one of the more practical items we've ever posted: it's water resistant, lightweight, folds into a convenient travel mode, and only requires two AA batteries.
The best price we've found on this is at Sky Mall, where it's just $39.95. Standard shipping adds $9 and sales tax is charged in most states.
