The Wearable 128MB MP3 Player holds roughly 40 songs and includes one of the simplest interfaces ever devised. The Wearable MP3 Player doesn’t need complicated software or even a power adaptor. Consumers just plug the player into their PC or Mac USB port to load songs and charge the device, all at the same time with the same cable. Two simple buttons turn the player on and off, skip songs and control volume. The Wearable MP3 player comes with an armband and specially designed earbuds intended to be worn around the neck. Consumers can also attach any standard headphones to the player.

Virgin Electronics also today introduced affordable, high-quality noise-canceling headphones for economy flyers. The noise canceling technology actually hushes constant background noise, like the sound of a jet engine, to make the listening experience more enjoyable. The lightweight headphones fold to a compact size for storage and include a protective carrying case and airline stereo plug adapter. At $39.99 they are a fraction of the price of high-end models that provide similar function.

Both new products are available immediately at Target stores across the country.
