MP3 CD Player
By now, you've probably at least heard of the rhythm-thumping Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, if not seen them around town conspicuously perched on the heads of commuting musicophiles everywhere. They're not cheap, and they're certainly not discreet, but they do deliver some seriously stellar sound quality for your favorite mp3s. But what if your style-conscious self isn't crazy about over-the-ear headphones... and even less in love with the $300 price tag? Thankfully, someone equally style-savvy (but perhaps much more "experimentally" so) has designed her own fashionable equivalent without sacrificing the sound value. Lady Gaga's HeartBeats, designed by the pantsless wonder herself, are sleek and chic and help deliver club caliber sound despite their tiny in-ear package. If you're not a serious stickler for sound clarity, you might be okay with sticking to your regular iPod buds, but if you strive to turn your morning walk to work into your own personal runway/dance floor, the HeartBeats may be your next go-to gadget!Price: $99.95Who Found It: xgalexy was the first to add HeartBeats Earbuds to the Hive.

My favorite dance clubs are the kinds with multiple rooms or floors that play different types of music in each section. That way, I'm never bored, always have a multiple options to choose from, and all my friends can find a room that they like. Have you ever imagined bringing that into your own home? I found a company called Sonos which makes wireless audio receivers and speakers that work in your home. Start out with the Sonos ZonePlayer, plug in your router and favorite speakers, and you're ready to go. With this system, you can listen music from your own iTunes library or listen to digital radio stations like Sirius and Pandora. Add ZonePlayers in other rooms and you can have your own in-house dance club. Sing along with Aretha Franklin and other classics in your bathroom and rock out to Gwen Stefani and Rihanna in your kitchen! Best of all, you can control everything with their Sonos controller, your computer, or your iPhone!Price: $499Who Found It: facadeindreams was the first to add the Sonos ZonePlayer to the Hive.
