Like while riding a bike, walking, running, etc. Airbudz, a successfully funded Kickstarter project, can turn your in-ear earphones into earphones that will allow you to enjoy your music and also be aware of your surroundings. What are Airbudz? They are replacement tips that 70% of existing in-ear style earphones currently in the market. Simply replace the noise canceling earbud that came with your earphones with Airbudz.
