The amazing thing about your Hub subject is the small headphones have come way down in price and there is such a variety to choose from. I would vote that auto accidents are the highest fatality in this area.

I was addicted to my Blackberry - had to give it up - had no control over my use in the car. This was before the texting and cell phone bans.

Helpful Hub!
