MP3 player headsets aren’t exactly ground breaking news, but when it involves an Apple product the blogging wheels get a turnin’ and in a hurry.

Elecom’s Actrail headphones are your standard wrap around headphones, with the exception that they’ve got an iPod Shuffle compatible plug built right into the phone itself.   Supposedly, they’re only compatible with the latest gen version of the MP3 player, but since it uses the same plug as a previous Shuffle, we’re confident some forceful plugging will get the job done.

The headphones don’t look all that plush and pardon us for being so skeptical, but something tells us the convenience for cutting the cord will be sacrificed in the name of sound quality.

Give them a shot for $50 and let us know what you think.
