A new beach towel with built-in speakers will connect to your iPod and pump out your favourite tunes while you relax on holiday this summer.
The hi-Sun towel has two speakers positioned either side of your head that connect to any portable music player.
They are built-in to a soft cushion that can be easily removed from the towel, allowing it to be washed.
Its makers say holidaymakers will no longer have to battle with tangled headphones or annoying tan lines caused by cables trailing over their neck or body.
The amplified speakers are powered by a long-life lithium battery that is recharged through an integrated USB port. These are attached to a 3.5mm universal jack for your iPhone, iPod or any other type of MP3 player.
The 100 per cent cotton towel measures 180cm long and 80cm wide and even rolls up into its own back-pack style bag.
It is available in blue, pink, red or black and costs £54.99.
A hi-Sun spokesman said: 'This towel is guaranteed to make you the envy of all beach-goers this summer.
'As others get in a tangle with their headphones and get tan lines from the trailing cables, you can relax and listen to your favourite tunes pumping out of the speakers on this soft and convenient towel.'
