These brand spankin' new wireless iMuffs may not come cheap with a price tag of $180 but they are the first wireless headphones with Clear Voice Capture (CVC) and you won't have to deal with any annoying cords. Listen to your iPod's tunes or videos wirelessly and use the ergonomic controls to pause, change volume, skip tracks, and find music. You can also talk on the phone with the noise canceling microphone or use the improved bluetooth radio. Yes, and I can't believe technology has advanced this far... you can now listen to music from your laptop or smartphone, talk on the phone over iChat or Skype and even chat while playing video games.
As the saying goes: Many tried, but there could only be one winner. jendudley is now the proud owner of the iPod Nano and Chocolate gift set giveaway. I used a random number generator (shown below) and picked 445, which just happened to be the number of jendudley's comment.
If you didn't happen to win you can still get yourself, or your mother, the very same specially wrapped iPod Nano and Chocolate gift set from Best Buy or online.
In the mood for more geeksugar giveaways? I'm giving the top taker for May a geeksugar tee shirt. Speak up folks. Speak up.
I loved the idea of Nike's armband for the iPod nano - it was great to use while exercising - but you couldn't see the screen, which was kind of annoying. Other people must have complained too because Nike solved the problem.
I'm proud to introduce the new Nike+ Sport Armband for your iPod nano. It has a clear window so you can see the screen, and covered buttons so you can control the tunes and volume easily. If you use the Nike+ iPod Sports Kit, the receiver can plug into your iPod nano and fit inside the case (very cool).
Made with Nike Pro fabric, it's comfortable and washable. It has an adjustable closure so you can get a snug fit to your arm. For $29.95, it'll protect your iPod nano from sweat while working out, and won't get in the way. Right now, it only comes in this grey/black color, but I'm sure they'll be making hot pink ones in no time.
Geek's buddy Popgadget just recently posted about the iWalk which is headphones that allow you to slip a first- or second-generation iPod nano into the iWalk's dedicated slot and go. One thing comes to mind, "Look ma, no hands!" Hold on to your gym shorts though. It's not available yet but when it is, it will retail for about $60.
Besides it looking kind of funny, the iWalk could be useful at the gym or while jogging at the park or when jamming to Fresh Prince and Jazzy Jeff on your boom box back in 1983...
Still, I am wondering what you guys think -- iWalk, cool or not?
Talk about eye candy, these colorful iPod nano cases are not only beautiful, but they protect your precious iPod too.
When I'm running on a treadmill at the gym, I don't need to have my nano strapped to my arm, because I can just place it on the stand in front of me, where the readout is. But because the treadmill is vibrating and the nano is so smooth, it just slips right off and onto the floor.
That is why I bought one of these Sport Grip from Marware made of slip-resistant silicone. It has rounded sides for easy grip (if you prefer to hold it in your hand), and has a clear plastic screen to protect the iPod screen, but you're still able to see your playlist. There is also a hole for the click wheel so you can easily change the song or adjust the volume.
It comes in 10 different bright colors so it's a great way to distinguish your iPod nano from everyone else's. And for $9.95, it's a cheap way to protect it too.
If you've spent tons of money on your iPod, you want to protect it with a case of some sort, especially if you're working out with it. Marware has got you covered, literally.
They make this really convenient armband for your iPod Shuffle called the Sportsuit Runabout for only $14.95.
And they make tons of cases for the iPod nano. If you prefer holding it in your hand so you can control the buttons easily, you'll love the Sportsuit Sprinter. It's designed with an adjustable hand strap, for only $24.95.
But I don't want to have to worry about holding it (for fear I'll drop it) so I love the Sportsuit Relay. It's a little more expensive, $29.95, but it comes with the iPod nano holder, and a pocket strap that attaches to your shoe to hold your Nike + iPod sensor. You can strap it to your wrist or arm.
Marware makes it easy to workout with your iPod. Want to see what they have to outfit your iPod? Then read more
If you've ever had a problem sticking your nano in your pockets you might want to consider doing two things. No. 1 is buying some looser jeans. No. 2 is checking out the Nano belt buckles, which are sure to generate a lot of questions.
TuneBuckle is a funky and funny iPod nano case made out of aluminum. We have taken great care to produce a product of the highest quality and design. The makers suggest the design allows you to "carry your nano to the grocery store, to the club, or to the board room," and while I am slightly confused why you would need your nano in a board room or a club, I'm intrigued. read more
Move, groove, and stay warm in the Nike Women's Soft Shell Therma-FIT Hatphones Cap.
The website doesn't explain much, but when I called Nike, I found out that inside the hat, there is a pocket for your Nano.
There are headphone speakers inside (these can be removed before washing) that have a cord that connects to your Nano.
The wires are all hidden in the hat, so you don't have to bother with dangling wires. An extension cord is included if you have a bigger iPod or MP3 player (it's too big to fit in the hat).
It also comes in black, white, and light blue for $60. It's a great idea if you love to listen to music while outdoors in cold weather.
The nice people at Mophie let me test out some of their new iPod accessories, including this neat Knox case that acts like a money clip for cash and cards and holds an iPod nano. It may sound like just another over-eager iPod accessory, but I found it to be incredibly useful and handy, plus I like the cool aluminum design.
The Knox allows you to take just the essentials in the ultimate wallet and iPod combo with you when you're on the go. It holds your cards, your cash, and your iPod securely in a slim shell of aircraft grade aluminum. I like it because I have a tendency to spill things in my purse and even when it's protected by a plastic case, I worry I'm going to flood my poor little iPod. Also, the case is just geek chic.
