  • New iPod touch, iPod nano Shipping Without Revamped EarPods


    As MMi reported Tuesday morning, customers who pre-ordered the new iPod touch 5G are beginning to get shipment notifications today.

    As established with previous generation devices, Apple's new iPod touch and iPod nano are shipping with headphones that lack the full scope of functionality and bells and whistles required to optimize the user experience.

    Specifically, Macotakara claims that the integrated controls and built-in microphone that could be used to take full advantage of the mobile technology at hand are conspicuously absent on the earphones shipping with the new iPod touch and iPod nano.

    The revamped EarPods with the added features are sold separately for $29.

    In recent days, reports have also circulated that there are "considerably few numbers of the initial shipment" of the fifth generation iPod touch and seventh generation iPod nano - another indication of lingering supply problems across the various iDevice lineup.

      The 3rd-generation was the first with voice control. It had the in-line controls and microphone:

      I'm also fairly-certain my 4th-gen had it too.

      I'll stick with my 6 buck Monoprice bass enhanced earbuds. Simply the best for money.

      I haven't Used a PAIR of Apple Headsets since the 2nd Gen iPod. Don't get me wrong the new iPod headsets for the iPhone look Amazing but no where NEAR the sound quality of my klipsch but Most people wouldn't spend $100 for a pair of earphones.

      So glad I didn't order the new nano then. I thought about doing it just to get the headphones as additional lightning cable, but I ended up purchasing those 2 items separately via the apple store saving some money.
