shared personal audio
share your music with a friend and talk to them without needing to stop your music.
How often have you been walking along with a friend talking - but also wanting to listen to music??
How about a pair of headphones that have a little microphone and blutooth built in. They operate like a normal pair of headphones, but if your friend is walking beside you they can tune their bluetooth
in to your headphones which will broadcast their music to your headphones. The microphone means that you can talk to each other too.
Because it's blue tooth you and your friend can be out of normal talking earshot (i.e. in a busy city street) but still be able to talk and hear each other.
There are additional add-ons like both having a remote control to the walkman so you can both control the music or being able to open up the bluetooth connection so you can talk to other people with headphones - or just listen to their music etc etc

||"Because it's blue tooth you and your friend can be out of normal talking earshot"
"Bluetooth" and "out of earshot" are mutually exclusive.
||We've done the music sharing idea before, but without the walkie-talkie aspect. I suspect there would be a fair amount of abuse with this, not to mention a certain amount of uncool. That said, welcome to the HalfBakery.
||In answer to the initial question posed: no.
||or rather - grammatically correct: 'never'.
