Headphones look to keep runners safe after dark

It might sound odd that a guitar maker is getting into fitness headphones, however Gibson falls under the same corporate umbrella as Philips, Onkyo and other personal audio brands. That being said, it's still a bit strange to see a pair of on-ears aimed at runners with the iconic guitar brand stamped on 'em. I was curious enough to give them a shot, and in the process, discovered there was much more to the Usain Bolt-endorsed Trainer headphones than the initial announcement pulged. Those are indeed onboard controls on the right earpad, and they sort not only play/pause and skip functions, but also toggle on/off a feature that dampens the sound so you can hear what's going on around you. Use it to converse with a workout pal, and it's sure to come in handy when coming up on a busy intersection on a run.
