Hear Muffs* seem like the perfect solution then, no? They're basically knitted ear muffs with secret headphones inside, so you can incorporate listening to your fav tunes on your morning commute into work/school but also keep your ears toasty warm. They sit on the back of your head so as not to mess up the hair (huge thumbs up from me for this..nothing like perfecting your hair with the ultimate volume and then having ear muffs flatten it straight down.) Other features are an adjustable headband, they fold up into your handbag (another big thumbs up) and have volume control on the cord. Mine are in black but they also come in a variety of different colours if you fancy something a bit brighter. All you need to do is plug them into any phone, iPod, iPad, or similar and you're ready to brave the brutal Winter chill. They're only £9.95 too. Can you say bargain?
I've loved using them and they've become a staple for me whenever I'm on the tube or wandering around town shopping. No more windchill complete with listening to my fav tunes..what's not to love? Plus, Max is a big fan too. How can you say no?
