A new line of headbands called Swapsets triple as a fashion accessory, headphones and optional headset. The products are available in a multitude of fabrics, varying from wool to cotton to silk, and the Swapsets site has a tool (pictured) for mixing and matching materials so you can come up with just the right look. Dangles, which hang from the bottom of the headband, are an optional accessory that look like earrings, to add a little flare.
