Those who don't care about audio quality can even listen to Pandora through the bone-conduction earpiece, but it's not likely to be an especially gratifying experience.

Pandora actually came up with the app after a company hack-a-thon, with a team developing the initial version in just 72 hours. That was subsequently shown to Google, and the full app developed. The Pandora Glassware is free and available to install now.
