I was thinking of taking a splitter cable and trying this, but I wonder if there would be any acoustic marvel inherent in having earbuds and regular headphones sort of in the same package. That is, you'd put in the buds, then clap a regular old fashioned set of headphones over top, and relegate the frequency response appropriately. I know normal earbuds would likely block out the outer sound, so I guess they'd have to be sort of acoustically transparent...at least at lower frequencies.

       When I was a kid, I used to listen to music with my headphones while sitting really close to the loudspeaker to give me that throbbing through my body base feeling.
