I don't listen to music when riding but saw this and thought it was interesting. Pearl Izumi's bib/mp3 player integrated with soft touch controls on the leg. Integrated speaker in the shoulder and bluetooth capable for headsets...

You'd think so if it's designed to get sweaty. I tried to find more info but there seems to be nothing at PearlIzumi.com. I read about it in on of my cycling rags and only found 2 tiny things online.

BTW, bluetooth speaker in the shoulder strap was designed to work with a cellphone in your pocket/bag. So you can pickup the call with soft touch controls and chat over the speaker...no idea how it'll handle wind noise...should be interesting.

they have blue tooth headsets now that are noise canceling and apparently (according one of my buddies who also posts here) works quite well.

So, where is the mp3 device? is it in the shorts? Do you have to plug your shorts into your computer to tranfer tunes? So many jokes there.... :D

anyone have a pic of the bluetooth speaker in the shoulder? seems like it'd be pretty bulky and uncomfortable, as well as give you an uneven lopsided feeling...

very cool thou, anyone know how much they're likely to retail for?
