Whenever I’m travelling anywhere (including making the five minute walk to Tesco), I’m plugged into my iPhone; a good soundtrack is pretty much all I need to keep me happy on any journey…but, well, it’s cold outside. And I really don’t cope well with cold weather. At all.
Naturally, then, when I spotted these Hear-Muffs (earmuffs with built in headphones), I knew I had to get my hands on a pair, and I’m not exaggerating when I say they’re one of the best winter wear discoveries I’ve made; they’re fully lined, keeping ears toasty and warm, and plug in to any device’s headphone jack, making them the ideal gift for anyone who, like me, can’t go without their music, even on short journeys. They’re designed to fit behind your head, as opposed to on top, like conventional earmuffs, meaning they’re ideal for hair-conscious boys and girls, and come in a variety of colours and designs, so there really is something to keep every music lover toasty this season.
Hear-Muffs are suitable for any device with a standard headphone jack, and retail for £15 and are available from John Lewis’ website (*) in a variety of colours.
(The shade I’m wearing is ‘White Sand’).
