Sound Walk's wearable audio vests, backpacks and jackets are a fashionable way to wear your audio sound system; instead of having those unsightly headphones and earphones attached to your head, you can instead have the speakers travel on your body. The idea is that you can be involved in outdoorsy activities, without being confined by the wires attached to your iPod's headphones. Sound Walk claims that by wearing your speakers, instead of having them in your ears; you will be safer, since their wearable audio systems don't block your hearing and that their hands free system is more convenient and more fashionable.

Sound Walk's wearable audio fashions include vests, which resemble backpack straps from the front; a motorbike jacket which has a leather design that will blend in with motorcycle leathers; various models of audio backpacks; and the Audio SWAT Jacket, which is a more complete outdoorsy hunting vest.
