4-0 out of 5 stars Great, but cord is way too long
They are great, the sound quality is great, and the remote is extremely handy. My one and only complaint is that the cord can become annoyingly long. It is basically the normal headphone length, doubled with a remote in the middle.

The remote is fun and handy, and works when your iPod is on hold. The play/pause turns it on and off when held down as the normal button does. It also has it's own hold button. Overall, it's great. However, I think the cord could be shorter and if the price was lower, or you could buy them for cheaper w/out the included normal headphones (and use the money to buy a different type, use the ones you have or whatever) then this would be great.

4 stars

5-0 out of 5 stars Price is set at real value
Although these may not be the best earphones, they are exceptional, especially for the price. Just about the best earphones you can get cost about $500, but if you want exceptional, but not the best, these earphones are for you. The remote, along with your ipod comes in handy if you have your ipod in your pocket, or if you have it in a case. The little remote if fun to have, because it makes it so easy to adjust the volume, and it creates joy in the user. I think that this is a good pair for $40, especially the earphones. Unless you are willin to spend $120 or more, these are the best earphones for their price.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice remote, problematic ear phones
I like the remote - it is well designed and easy to use. It features a pause/play button, track skip (forward and backward), volume, and a hold button so you don't hit the buttons by accident. Especially handy when the iPod is in its case.

The earphones sound pretty good, however, it's hard to keep them from falling out of your ear which is a shame.

Also, the white color of everything is good and bad - on one hand, it's fun because you advertise that you're using an iPod to everyone. On the other hand, it's bad for the same reason because they're so distinctive, some one may steal your iPod!

3-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic features and sound, but some problems
The remote control for iPod is inspired. I love it, and use it all the time. It's fragile, though, and I've been through two of them, working on my third, in less than two years. I had the remote in my purse, dropped my purse, and a nail polish bottle falling on the remote caused the back cover to break off. Not good.

The earphones have great, great sound, tremendous range, but... They are much too big for my ear canals. Wearing them for longer than fifteen minutes is painful. I'm investing in Sony earbuds for this reason. They tend to fit smaller ear canals better, and the EX-71SLB Fontopias definitely fit better, with their three sizes of bud covers. Can't go wrong there.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent device!
I use my IPod mini mostly at the gym. The remote is a handy little device that clips into either the mini, or full-sized IPod. The earphones produce great sound, but like so many "in-ear" devices fall out easily. Apple really needs to produce and include an "over the ear" type of headset.

The remote control has a clip so it can be attached to clothing. It is fully functional, including volume and hold switches.

Buy some decent Sony headphones, and you've got quite a good combo. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars expensive
I haven't actually tried this armband, but wanted to tell you about my discovery: I was about to buy this $30 item, when I realized that my new mini iPod fits my radio armband strap like it was made for it!(Sony Walkman Radio SRF-M80V, the orange and white one that it seems like every runner I see has) So check what you already have before purchasing--I run with it every day!

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT product, BAD price.
Thie armband is a wonderful THEFT DETERRANT. Though velcro, is a safer bet than the eprovided ipod clip.

Putting on and taking off the arm band is just involved enough to prevent theft or loss. Before a theft could be completed, it would be noticed by the wearer.

But, the amazon price is bad. Go to comp usa or microcenter.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have exercise accessory
If you plan on using your iPod Mini while exercising, you need to get this great arm band! The velcro closer holds tight (but not too tight) and doesn't slip while you are jumping around or running on the treadmill. It fits so nicely on my arm that I often forget I'm even wearing it.

People have complained about the price, but this was a thirty bucks well spent for me. I don't leave home without it!

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice, but expensive.
I found the armband very convienient and comfortable. I even threw it in the wash a couple times (note: I have a front loading wash machine--gentler on clothes.) It compliments the Ipod very nicely and slides onto the Ipod very slick-like. As other have mentioned, it is pricey. That's why I gave it 4 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very convenient
Nice quality device, velcro with high quality leather band. Price is a bit steep but worth it. When I exercise it's not convenient to hold my ipod the whole time, I need the arm band so it becomes like a part of me. Unlike some, I don't have time to 'make my own' and there are no armbands which fit ipods in particular, so this is the only option. Good thing the quality doesn't suffer.-Andre G Clovers ...

Amazon.com Product Description

Do away with the clutter of CDs, cassettes, and jewel cases while on the road with the TransPod FM transmitter and charger, which plays your favorite iPod tunes through your car's stereo speakers. The TransPod powers itself via your car's cigarette lighter and broadcasts the iPod signal to any empty FM frequency on your dial--from 88.1 to 107.9 MHz. Should the reception at one frequency come in poorly, merely change frequencies by pressing the side button. And while you're busy listening to music, the TransPod is also charging your iPod at the same time, ensuring that it won't run out of juice in the middle of a long drive. The TransPod installs in any type of vehicle, and its adjustable mounting arm lets you position the iPod anywhere across the dash for easy access and control. The device also offers a line-out function so you can plug it directly into the car stereo via an optional cassette adapter or auxiliary plug. Compatible with the 3G, 4G, iPod mini, and iPod+HP with dock connector, the TransPod is the ultimate all-in-one car solution for music fans.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great Idea, Not So Great Product
First off I think that the performance of all of these FM Transmitter type of devices are very dependent on the type of vehicle you own. So your results may differ from mine.

I've tried the Sound Feeder, iTrip and recently the Transpod in my 2002 Altima.

What I like about the Transpod:
Nice mounting system. It makes the iPod very easy to see. I thought the iPod was pretty secure and didn't bounce around too much and I live in pot hole ridden upstate NY. It charges the iPod. It's simple to change stations and has a strong FM signal.

What I didn't like:
Low Volume, very poor stereo separation (if any), poor dynamic range, iPod pre-amp is by passed, significantly loud whining noise even when iPod wasn't plugged in, can't use iPod with DLO Jam Jacket or iSkin, expensive.

The noise was too much for me no matter where I positioned the unit so I returned it.

The iTrip has much better sound quality, lower FM noise and costs a ton less. The biggest problem I have with the iTrip is that it is somewhat of a process to change stations.

The Transpod was something I wanted to like but just couldn't do it. If they improved the FM transmitter it would be a great device.

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing at best
Great idea, not so great execution. If you've read the other reviews here you should already have a pretty good idea what's wrong with this product. But I need to add one more serious flaw: it's not stereo. Sure, it lights the little "stereo" light in your car's FM radio- but it sounds like all left channel / right channel separation is lost in the audio- even with a good, strong, clear signal on an unused FM frequency. Now of course I can't be certain whether this is a design omission, or if my unit is simply defective. To me , it doesn't matter; it's unacceptable in either case.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money...
At best, it works.
This not a QUALITY sound solution. If you can plug into auxilary jacks on your car radio, that's the better way to go. There is a hiss or high pitched hum that comes through. It seems to be from the iPod hardrive spinning, but I am not sure.

The adjustable "arm" that plugs directly into the car lighter is not a very stationary setup (wobbly). If you try to snug the thumb screw joints to stop it from moving, you can crack the plastic joint. I did just that. I am still trying to fix it. What appeared to be an easy fix with crazy glue is turning into a major repair. The whole joint came apart. I may have to use some of the optional pieces included.

Of course, DLO does not appear to have a website.

1-0 out of 5 stars I can't believe I spent $100 on this.
I love my iPod so much that I was willing to shell out a C-note to give me the ultimate accessory for the car. What a mistake. Transpod's FM transmitter is bassy and has lots of hiss, no matter what frequency you choose. The holder arm has joints that slip and get disconnected, causing it to lose power and making the whole thing quit working. Transpod is a great idea, but severely flawed in execution. It's also overpriced... but again, had it worked properly, I would have gladly paid even more. My recommendation: get a $7.99 cassette tape adaptor and plug it straight into your iPod. It sounds and works far better. ... Read more


105. Shure E3c Sound Isolating Earphone Stereo Headphone

Amazon.com Review

If you're looking to upgrade your portable music listening experience, the Shure E3c sound isolating earphones deserve a serious look. The E3c's offer a level of sensitivity and range that places them in the audiophile tier of earphones and fortunately, Shure has priced them to make this kind of quality within reach.

In many ways, judging sound quality is all about making comparisons, and when the E3c's are matched against their big brother, the Shure E5c earphones, the E3c's do reveal a noticeable loss of dynamic range and clarity. Of course, the E5c's are worth every penny for those who want to spend more on earphones than they spent on their iPod. The E3c's, on the other hand, come out a clear winner when you weigh their quality and cost.

Design
The E3c earbuds are small and easy to insert in the ear-- easier, in fact, than the E5c earbuds, which are larger and less friendly to folks with small ears. The E3c's thin and pliant cords are light and easy to manage. They're also designed to be looped over the back of the ear, but some testers found it uncomfortable and awkward to keep them there. These testers also said they preferred inserting the earphones upside down, letting the cords dangle downwards from the ear to avoid hassles. By comparison, the E5c earphones feature a bendable stiffening material in the section of cable that runs behind the ears, allowing the listener to loop the cables over and behind the ear more securely. It would be nice to see this simple solution added to the E3c earphones.

Shure did choose to give the E3c's the same gold-plated, 3.5mm input connector as the E5c's. The connector has a low-profile elbow bend to minimize accidental unplugging and snags-- great for laptop and airline users. And just like the E5c's, the E3c's come with a number of earplug "sleeves" packaged in what Shure calls a "fit kit". Our testers had little trouble finding a sleeve that felt comfortable. We especially liked the expanding foam sleeves that, like those foam dinosaurs that grow in water, expand to fit the contours of the ear canal.

Sound Quality
As we listened to a broad range of musical genres on the E3c earphones it was hard, once again, not to make comparisons with the E5c's. If you aren't even entertaining the notion of purchasing the E5c's, then make sure you never have occasion to listen to them. Rest easy in the knowledge that the E3c's deliver clear, crisp highs and rich, thundering lows. Delight in the fact that they excel at delivering the celebrated earphone experience; the external world is largely silenced and the music resonates inside your head. Meanwhile, if you are toying with the idea of stepping up to the E5c's, go ahead and give both models a listen. Although the difference between the two is not stark, we immediately noticed that we had to drive the E3c's at higher volume to get the same kind of resonance and fullness the E5c's deliver at a relatively lower volume.

Comparing the E3c's to the E5c's is a bit unfair, but in many ways, the comparisons revealed just how good both sets of earphones really are. The E5c's represent an extremely high benchmark, and fortunately for those who don't want to spend a bundle on top-quality earphones, the E3c's aren't too far off the pace. We recommend them as a massive upgrade to the standard headphones that ship with most portable music devices.--Joshua Gunn

Pros

  • Simple, compact design
  • Designed for compatibility with most ears
  • Excellent sound quality at a non-stratospheric price
Cons
  • Cord ergonomics could be better
  • Lower-quality sound than the E5c model generates unplanned spending urge

2-0 out of 5 stars Ok but I agree to much for what you get
I was expecting sound nirvana as I am a musician and am familar with the Shure brand. I tried every size ear peice and none realy fit. To get a full range sound I had to press them in my ear. If I moved around at all they alwasy came out. Way to much effort. Not worth (...)

4-0 out of 5 stars high quality - high price
I have used the E3c earphones for about four weeks, (in addition to two weeks without them). I was hesitant about spending so much for, what essentially, looked like earbuds. My expectations were tempered with other reviewers' comments about unimpressive bass response. When I received them, I was indeed initially disappointed, because to my dismay the left speaker sounded "blown". I could clear up some of the buzz by pushing in on the nozzle. I did send them back to the manufacturer, (the vender only allowed a 15-day return period which I could not meet). I was very suprised to have a new, packaged, replacement set of earphones within days. I'm sure that they were immediately shipped the day my faulty ones arrived. The replacement earphones worked very well. The sound quality of these phones are exceptional. The bass is deep and significant, (but not like a sub-woofer if that's what you're looking for). Instead the bass compliments the music without overpowering it like a sub-woofer. The music's quality is so good it has a 3-dimensional feel, almost like the musicians are in the room with you! As an example, when listening to a guitar instrumental that I've heard many times before, while using the E3c earphones I could now easily hear the sound of fingers moving up and down the strings as cords were played. Somethings that I had not noticed previously. The sound-isolating qualities are also very good. In fact, as good as earplugs to the outside world, which further enhances the music quality. If you can afford them, these are very high quality phones. I chose this model as a compromise... I would love to try the next model up..., which costs three times as much! I am very happy with the customer service/support and the quality of the earphones. I would have given them a five-star rating had the first pair of phones worked properly.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Enough Bang for the Buck
I used these for about 3 weeks before returning them. If I didn't know how much I spent on them, I would say they are ok. There is something about spending a lot and expecting a lot. Well, find another pair of earphones, these have a decent sound, mid-range bass reflex and get uncomfortable after an hour of use. They are basically ear plugs with a small driver on the outside. If I paid $40 for these, I would keep them. Anything past that is simply not worth it. That small driver doesn't really compare to a good over-the-ear type headphone set. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This connects an I-POD to a PC's USB Port 1.0 or 2.0
I get an IPod from someone. It's cable doesn't fit my USB port on my PC. I found out it came with a fire-wire cable. I searched for fire-wire to USB cable changer, but I found they don't exist. I saw this (Apple iPod Dock Connector-to-FireWire-and-USB 2.0 Cable), but I thought you had to have an I-Pod Dock and I didn't know what it was. Well, the Dock Connector refers to the port on the bottom of all I-Pods. You plug the "dock" connector to the bottom of your I-Pod (it's dock), and now you can plug the USB cable to your PC's USB port, whether you have 1.0 or 2.0 (2.0 is just faster). Also, now you take the extra fire-wire cable and plug it to your charger, so you can keep charging while your using your I-Pod on your PC. The alternative is buying a fire wire card and installing it in your PC, a little more expensive, a litte more work.

5-0 out of 5 stars Works as Advertised
I use this to hook my new iPod up to my USB 2.0 PCI card. This can only be used with the new iPod, as it uses the Dock Connector. My thoughts:

USB 2.0 worked relatively well. A few things that users should know: USB 2.0 shares bandwidth with all devices that are using the master hub. Therefore, the more you have hooked up, the slower the speed for each device is. I happen to just be using the iPod with my USB 2.0 PCI card. Another note: the iPod cannot take full advantage of USB 2.0. The iPod can only handle the 400 Mbps data transfer rate that FireWire supplies. The extra 80 Mbps does not make a difference in this situation.

Using this cable initially for my iPod (my computer's OS is Windows XP), I found the installation painless, and it works as advertised.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Straightforward to Use, but Great Anyway
Basically, most people don't have a Mac computer, so most people only have USB connectors on their computers. So go to TARGET and get this Dock Connector for $14.95. It works great for USB ports, and the great Apple interface makes updates a breeze. Overall, great product for computers other than Macs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fuctional
I was surprised by the fact that the USB cable wasn't included with my iPod, I was disappointed when I first got my iPod and wanted to put songs on it. It needs to be clearer that this cable is necessary for Windows users without FireWire ports. Also, if you look at the information on iPod on apple.com, it makes it sound like the dock is also a necessary purchase for a Windows, when it actually isn't. This product works fine, no flaws after almost a year of owning an iPod.

5-0 out of 5 stars the only choice for most
the cold hard facts today are that most people do not have a MAC computer. its also a fact that most computers have USB ports, not fire wire. You have two alternitives: a fire wire card for around 40 dollars, or this cable for around 20 dollars, you make the choice. if your like me, the only thing you would use the fire wire card for would be your iPod, which to me seems like a waste of 20 bucks, but if you have a lot of fire wire appliances, then you may wanna pick up the card. For any other reason than that, this cable is the only solution.
On the upside, you can dowload music on to the iPod and have it plugged into a power outlet at the same time so your iPod doesnt run out of batteries half way through downloading, thus cancelling your download. This isnt such a big problem for MAC users, since the iPod actually charges while downloading, but for windows users, most of us, it sucks the batteries dry when downloading. This cord is almost a given necasity for PC users, inless you want to waste 20 bucks! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Somewhat disappointed with Belkin iPod Battery Pack
Hello,

I had a chance to use the battery pack a lot over the past ten days. The problem I had was that it didn't work for as long as promised. I was promised 15 hours of extra iPod use with the Belkin battery pack, so that's what I expected. I tried cheap-o drug store batteries at first, and then tried some of the more well-known and higher priced batteries. The performance was about the same for each kind of battery. Here's what happened...

On flights between LA and Chicago, the battery pack worked fine. The flights were about four hours. At the end of the flight I was careful to turn off the battery pack. When I turned the battery pack on again later that day, my iPod would not start up. I was careful to follow the instructions in the manual. The Apple logo would come on, but then an icon with a battery warning appeared and the iPod would shut off. I expected the battery pack to last much longer than that. I had to replace the batteries to restore the battery pack's ability to work with the iPod.

The same thing happened when I used the Battery Pack at my parents house while visiting them in Chicago. Each night I would use the iPod to help me get to sleep, and each morning I had to replace the batteries. I went through a lot of batteries in ten days.

Also, (and I admit that I am not at all sure this is a problem - maybe this is normal), the cable that connects the battery pack to the iPod gets pretty warm. It's not so hot that it cannot be touched, but it is very warm. So is the plastic near the cable. I thought that perhaps this might mean that I had made a mistake when inserting the batteries into the battery pack - reversing the polarity or something like that, but I checked and the batteries were put in correctly.

That's all...

Patrick

1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of junk.
I bought this thinking it'd be the panacea to the brevity of the iPod's battery life. It is. When it works.

Pros:
•More time to listen to music.

Cons:
•Bulky. Power connector should be integrated, and the device should somehow fit around the iPod. While I have not had any bad experiences with suction cups holding expensive equipment, they are simply illogical considering that you are entrusting them with a $3-500 piece of equipment full of your life's work and all of your music.

Here's the kicker, and I realize that I'm not the only one who has had this problem:

I thought it was just a fluke when my battery pack's springs melted and I smelled burning plastic. Fortunately I haven't seriously burned myself, but cbBut it happened three times. Belkin phone support was no help, e-mail support didn't even address the issue, they just said "call us for help", and Belkin refused to replace the product.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has been helpful(I recently filed a complaint/report), but Belkin is still quiet. Oh well. The Voice Recorder for the iPod is also pretty bad. Stay away unless you enjoy getting burns and wasting batteries.

4-0 out of 5 stars Bad batteries!
To the person who had two of these burn up on him...I had a similar experience. My iPod kept locking up with the battery pack plugged in, and the pack got HOT. I replaced the batteries, and suddenly everything was fine. I was curious so I put the original batteries (the ones that came in the package with the battery pack) in a battery tester and got some really strange results...the tester gauge started bouncing all over the scale! It seems that the included batteries are funky in the sense that they don't supply a steady source of power. My new batteries, in the same tester, move the gauge and it STAYS PUT, rock solid. I can see how an iPod with an unsteady power source would have problems. It seems fine now.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good but way to BIG!
I got one when I was in Canada because my ipod ran out of juice and there was no where to charge it up... Simply put ... its just 'TOO BIG' for practical and on-the-move use!... there is no way you can walk around with your ipod and the battery pack in your pocket... its stupid... it is good for flights but that's about it...Belkin have made a smart looking and high quality product but the size is just stupid in my opinion...but saying that I wouldn't need to carry around a bloody battery pack if Apple improved the ipod battery life.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor Design
I was so excited when I bought my iPod and I went right out and purchased the Belkin charger. Three units (and a burned finger) later I finally returned it for a refund. The first unit lasted about two hours before it stopped working completely. The others lasted only slightly longer. The smell of burining rubber was the clue.

What I finally figured out was that when the unit was placed on a flat surface with its flat side down it overheated to "very hot" and fried the electronics. My guess is that the flat side is the only way to dissipate the heat. Therefore, when it's on a flat surface it just heats up until it burns up. But with no warnings there was no way to know. When I finally figured it out I deceided that I needed a backup device that wasn't so fussy about which side was up or down.

This is the poorest designed device I have ever purchased which is saying a lot for 61 year old life-long gadget guy. It's a shame I have to be so negative but maybe that will help someone from wasting time and money. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

What classier cable to use when hooking your iPod up with your home stereo than Monster Cable's custom iCable interconnect? Your iPod is capable of delivering audiophile-quality sound, and the iCable uses Monster Cable's latest technologies to deliver a connection that maximizes the transmission quality of your digital music while being rugged enough for portable use.

Further, the interconnect's twisted-pair XLN technology offers superior noise rejection--important when connecting your iPod in an environment that's high in radio-frequency or electromagnetic interference. A gracious, seven-foot length accommodates tricky stereo hookups.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for iPod or any portable
The other cables of this type from Monster have a huge connector which is square and bulky on the minijack end. They put alot of strain on the headphone port of the iPod. So I've always went with a lighter, cheaper cable. Until I found this 'iCable' as Monster calls it. This cable is a much better design and all the connections fit very snug. The black nylon "snakeskin" covering is very resistant to wear and tear, and very flexible and relaxed. I prefer it over the traditional poly/rubber coverings of the other models. A black nylon pouch with a velcro enclosure is also included. I can even fit my iPod (with case) in that pouch along with the cable, which comes in handy for bringing all your music over to a friends place. And the 7 foot length is more than enough, and quite a value for a cable of this quality and design, considering the relatively low price. Monster also makes a car charger (iCharger) for the iPod now, which is very well-designed and also highly recommended.

EDIT: After a few weeks, I'll add some comments. Mainly, these connectors are TIGHT. And the small size makes them sometimes difficult to remove. In several cases I've had to pull on the cable itself. Monster Cable does have a lifetime warranty, so you can go into any store that carries it and swap it out. Something to keep in mind, nevertheless.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't pay for style over substance!
Monster makes good cables and often has products other people don't have, but this isn't the case here. This is a very common cable available in your choice of lengths from stereo and electronic stores. I have an iPod and a Bose home theater system and get perfect sound from the 6-foot, $6 version from Radio Shack. All you need is a stereo mini-plug on one end (plugs into the top of the iPod) and RCA red and white stereo jacks on the other (plug into the "input" jacks on your stereo).

1-0 out of 5 stars Common sense
Ok guys, personal disclosure: I'm an audio engineer and a classical musician. My life revolves around fussing over the most minute details of music, whether listening to it or making it. These cables are STUPID. When I was a kid, I remember buying these from the loser sales-people at Hi-Fi Buys. It's the same old line, "You spend how much on your system, and you're going to waste it all with $5 Radio Shack cables?" It's BS! Here's the line profesional musicians and engineers fall back on, "If it sounds good, it is good."

Technical note: if you really wanted high quality cables, you'd have to use 3-pin balanced cables operating at +4dbu. All consumer equipment is 2-pin, unbalanced and operates at -10. So you can buy gold cables (hell, why not platinum, or - DIAMOND, yes DIAMOND cables!), dip them in expensive chocolate, and do a rain dance and it's going to sound just the same.

2-0 out of 5 stars it really depends on what sort of music you listen to
There's a schism here between people who think the cable is worth the extra money for the sound fidelity it affords, and those who feel ripped off because they can get basically the same thing at Radioshack for $5.

To be honest, it all depends on what sort of music you listen to. I love the Sex Pistols, Nirvana, Spoon, Joy Division, Pixies, Dead Kennedys. And guess what? High fidelity cables aren't going to make a 128 kbps MP3 of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" sound any prettier.

However, if the bulk of your iPod collection is classical or vocal music ripped as larger 192 plus files, then these cables DO make a difference. If you like showtunes, Bette Midler, Clay Aiken, or Andrea Botticelli, sure, I think you'll hear a difference. But who cares? You're an @$%hole anyway.

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm happy satisfied with it.
Great unit! Who says size does matter? The length of the cable makes the whole package quite satisfying. I would not hesitate to get it again. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Come on!
They say it is soo easy to dock the Ipod mini. WRONG! My Ipod mini got scratched, so thats when I decided to put the skintight cover on, to cover it up. Then I got a regular Ipod dock, and thanks to the cover my Ipod mini fit perfectly, and not only was it cheaper, I got the same things that the mini dock could do.

2-0 out of 5 stars No Cables !!! (useless?)
Hi
I ordered this along with my Ipod Mini (which is back ordered), I'm very suprised and disapointed that this is just a little piece of plastic with 2 connectors: I was (wrongly...) assuming that ordering this meant I could have 1 connection at work and another at home... it is actually not useful on its own...

1-0 out of 5 stars Dock your mini without the scratches!
As has been pointed out on message boards, you don't need the mini dock to dock your mini! The standard iPod dock works just fine. If you put the belt clip that came with your mini on it upside down, you can use it to brace the back of your mini and it stands up fine in the larger dock. The larger dock is also cheaper!

1-0 out of 5 stars No Good Use
There is no good use to this. If you want to connect your iPod to your home stereo system, just use a FM transmitter. They actullaly work better! And all this does is scrtach up the front and ruin your precious iPod mini.

4-0 out of 5 stars Necessary evil
As another reviewer noted, the dock is necessary to play your music through a stereo. The dock provides the required 'line out' function to hook to your reciever. It also serves as a cradle for charging the iPod. A fm transmitter will also allow you to play the ipod through the stereo reciever, but what you get is radio sounding tunes instead of stereo quality.
Another reviewer said the dock stratches the front of the ipod. I haven't yet had this trauma, and would probably cry if it were to happen. I push my ipod in at an angle, and it seems to avoid that nasty problem.
My only complaint is that for what you have to pay for an ipod, it should be included and not a separate extra. Docks are included with ipods over 15 gigs, so why do the little guys have to pay more? ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars What's the point?
What's the point of getting a dock for thirty dollars when you can just get a USB extension cord for a lot less?

3-0 out of 5 stars Trouble with Dell?
I boughtan ipod shuffle and my Dell would not recognize the ipod when using the front USB ports ( I have a Dell 8400) and the screen went blue. I got so freaked I returned the ipod. I may try it again.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice but overpriced
Could not get my Shuffle to work with the front USB ports on my Dell computer.But it works just fine in a rear port.

This dock connector would be a great convenient solution.However I feel it is overpriced at $30.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect Product for Certain Shuffle Users
Here is the bottom line . . . if you have clear access to your USB ports on the side of your monitor or the front of your computer, then this is not the product for you.However, if you do not have a convenient port on the front of your computer, then this product is perfect.It is very well made and works exceptionally well.In addition, it just plain looks cool sitting in the corner of your desk (especially for Mac users where it complements all of the new Apple hardware especially well).I have the new G5 iMac and just got tired of fishing around behind the display to plug it in.In addition, the USB ports on the back of the iMac seem very tight, whereas the Shuffle slides right into this dock with a reassuring click.So there you have it . . . the perfect product for certain users.Not necessary for others.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best in-ear, noise-blocking earphones available!
I have used the Etymotic ER6 and also the Shure E2c's for a couple years now (since January 2002 I think). I use them extensively - probably averaging 2-3 hours daily. In my opinion they are both the best in-ear and isolating earphones in existence. I started with the Etymotic ER6's and then bought the Shure E2's as soon as I saw them advertised. I use them mostly while working out in the gym and yes--don't tell anyone-- while riding a bicycle. I know it's not the safest, but I'm addicted. As far as comparing the sound quality, I am not an expert and cannot tell much of a difference between the two. The main difference I have noticed is that the Shure E2c's have significantly better amplification than the Etymotics at the same volume settings on my MP3 player. Otherwise they are both so far above any of the dozens of other earphones, earbuds and headphones I have used that there is really no comparison. I could never go back. I use the Shure E2c's more now because they stay in my ears better as a result of their design which allows the cables to wrap around my ears. Also the cables have heavier shielding which decreases noise from wind and from the cables brushing against my clothes. The other advantage is that the Shure offers a 2 year warranty, whereas with the Etymotic's I could find no published warranty and they charged me $60 for a replacement after owning them for a few months.
Unfortunately both earphones take quite a beating with all the physical activity. I'm on my second pair of Etymotic ER6 and my 3rd pair of Shure E2c's. The problem seems to be broken wires from motion and pressure associated with weightlifting. This is unfortunate, but I have not found any way to avoid it nor have I found any better in-ear earphones (with similar noise-blocking) to replace them.

4-0 out of 5 stars Sounds Good
I'd read a lot of good things about these earphones so I plunked down the hundred to buy them. It was definitely money well spent and they do exactly as advertised. I used them mostly just with my ipod and now I hear things in songs that I never even heard before. I actually went and re-recorded some of my songs at 320 kb and could actually notice a difference. They're also good for using on the tractor as an alternative to earplugs. My only complaints are that they're not AS sound isolating as I thought they would be. I can't hear people talking but I can still hear some of what's going on around me. They work about the same for sound isolating as foam earplugs do. Also, the ear pieces get pretty nasty after a while. But those are just nitpicks for what are otherwise excellent headphones. Definitely the best I've ever used.

4-0 out of 5 stars READ ME!!!! unbiased review
Shure's E2c's are 'entry-level' consumer earphones (hence, the 'c') in their line of premium in-the-ear headphones. I recently purchased these at an airport after reading a CNET.com review. As stated in that review, the e2's are designed to be accurate, so dont be expected to be blown away by rattling bass, or sizzling high frequencies - they are just meant to present to you the music that is put into them.

After a bit of testing with the different sleeves, i found that the medium foam sleeves are the best in terms of comfort AND isolation - oh yeah, these go pretty deep into your ear, or else you won't get any bass at all. Before you turn on the music, everything's muffled - you can still hear anything outside, its just more subdued (some report i read said that they provide about 20 decibels of isolation). When you turn on the music, however, you won't notice any outside noise at all, unless its EXTREMELY loud.

Remember - if you want some of the best premium headphones on the market, don't need mega bass, and can take care of your stuff, then get these e2's. You won't be dissapointed. I use these with my iPod daily.

P.S. if you still can't hear quality out of these headphones, either they're defective or you need to encode your music at a higher bitrate - at least 160 for mp3, 128 for aac, and 96 for wma.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing sound from such a small package
I purchased these headphones because I had read so many good things about them. I ride a motorcycle and wanted something that sounded great on the road. These earbuds are light years ahead of the very uncomfortable normal earbuds that hardly fit in your ear at all. The sound is great, yes, no BOOMING bass, but enough to keep me happy, very alive sound, blocks everything else out. Well worth it, I would do it again in a second.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Earphones Ever
Ever stopped and thought about how much you love your ipod? Sure you have. After a week of use, you'll begin to develop a similar fondness for these earphones. They block out all exterior noise, they're extremely comfortable, and the sound quality is supreme. These are the best earphones on the market - do yourself a favor and get them. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Better than some of the alternatives
I ended up buying the TuneCast II when I accidentially broke my iTrip. When I first got the iTrip, I thought that it was a pretty good FM transmitter. After I got the TuneCast, however, I realized that it's much better than the iTrip. For one, you don't have to "load" the radio stations into your iPod and the fact that the TuneCast gives you the option of using any frequency imaginable, which is good when you live in a big city (like I do), and the availabilty of radio frequencies seems to change from day to day. True, the sound quality is not perfect, but I attribute part of that to not being able to find a 100% unused frequency. I don't like the battery drain, but I've been told that some of the specialized digital media batteries (like the kind typically used in digital cameras) solves the drain problem easily. Overall, I'd give the TuneCast II a B+ to A-.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not the answer to traveling w/ your ipod...
I live in a fairly large metropolitan area and many of the lower FM frequencies that would be available in smaller towns are filled here. That being said, it's difficult to find a frequency to tune into with the Tunecast II. The second problem is sound quality...it's not terrible but it's less than cd-quality sound. Third is the Tunecast II's monstrous appetite for AAA batteries. On one car trip (a total of 6 hours of driving) I changed batteries twice. The secondary problem with this battery hog is that it loses its programmed memory when it loses battery power, forcing you to reprogram the frequencies over and over again. Don't waste your money, I'll be returning mine to the store.

1-0 out of 5 stars Purchased and Returned the Same Day
I read the reviews on all these fm transmitters and this seemed to be fairly good with reviews on both ends of the spectrum. However, I had some major beef with this product for several reasons. First because the power cord kept coming out of the transmitter and reseting to the lowest freq. when plugged back in, that resulted in constant reseting the stations. Second, when the frequency was set to a certain station, it would be okay for alittle while then start picking up the signal from the station it was on. Third, the sound quality was not very good because it's only as good as an FM station can be, basically it sounds like the radio. Fourth, it worked best when the receiver was placed as far from the ipod as possible and also not particullarly close to the radio. I just had a lot of difficulties with it...I later talked to a employee at an Apple Store and he said to get the monster cable icarplay. He uses that one and said its much better than all the others he's tried, but still the best way of connecting is hard wiring it your radio if you can. I'm looking into that now and will probably purchase the icarplay if thats not possible. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Little dynamo!
This little wunderkind is a very welcome addition to any car stereo system. I originally bought this device early last year so that I could play my MP3 player over my car stereo. Let me tell you, it sounds great. As long as I've owned this iRock I've never had a problem with it; even if there's a radio station coming in perfectly on the selected frequency, the iRock completely overrides it with no bleedover at all. (And I live in an area where there are sometimes seemingly up to six radio stations fighting with each other on the same frequency.)
The battery life on the unit is outstanding and its small size (slightly smaller than a computer mouse) lets me put it just about anywhere in my car without it getting in the way. I don't even need a completely clear line of sight to the car antenna; no matter where it sits or where it's pointing, it works.
About the only gripe I would have with this device is the power button. It's extremely sensitive; I could swear that once or twice I turned the thing on just by looking at it. Exaggerating a bit, of course, but just make sure you don't set it down somewhere that it could bump against something and turn it on accidentally. It doesn't have an auto-power-off feature or anything, so if it turns on by accident, it stays on until it dies. (I've gone through quite a few AAAs that way...) This one comes with a DC adapter, however (which mine didn't >_<), so you don't even have to worry about that.
Overall, I'm very happy with my iRock, and I'd recommend it for anyone who wants to take portable audio on the road, be it an MP3, CD, or tape player.

3-0 out of 5 stars Works as advertised
I don't have a bunch of different audio systems to test this in various environment, so I cannot make too much of a general comment. I think how well this thing works really depends on whether the radio stations in your area already occupy the frequencies you can choose from for this unit.

Sound quality is not the greatest, of course, and you cannot really expect FM radio quality music out of your MP3 or CD players connected to this transmitter; the songs you hear on radio are processed for pleasant reception on our ends, whereas MP3s or CDs give you purer sounds, so they will sound a bit flat. To improve the reception, you probably have to experiment with how you "direct" the head of this unit toward the antenna. Unless you have some space in your car to secure this in its best position, you'll be frustrated by the fluctuating sound quality.

Also, NEVER forget to turn this thing off before getting out of your car. The red power indicator is kinda hard to see during the day time.

I still use it because the area I live in has crappy radio stations playing only classic rock, christian music, or latin songs with medium salsa. It works okay for me, but I am also hoping something better comes along.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works as promised
I live in Minnesota, southern Twin Cities, and drive a Camery, commuting into the metro area. The product works great on 88.1, with no 'bleed in' from surrounding stations. It's not CD quality sound, but it's as good or better than the quality of any FM station. I use it to play MP3s on my iPaq. The option to use either the AAA batteries or the lighter adapter is a great touch.

The only thing holding back the last star is I'd like to have seen an 'auto-off' feature to conserve the batteries. Too easy to forget to turn it off. (this isn't a problem if you use the lighter power adapter vs. batteries)

Overall a very good product!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Ipod users
I recently bought the irock to connect to my ipod for my traveling pleasure and let me tell you i bought the itrip a month earlier and the itrip does not compare to the irock. The irock had very little static and had great reception. I would fully recommend the irock which is way cheaper than the itrip.

1-0 out of 5 stars Good for a month
I bought this product because it had some high recommendations. I'd been using cassette adapters to listen to Audible from my PocketPC in my car stereo. The cassette adapters wouldn't stay in the tape deck of my car stereo, so I bought this.

For the first month, the irock worked flawlessly. After a while, I noticed that I'd only get the right stereo channel. Since I'm sitting to the left (being the car's driver), I needed to turn it up a bit to compensate. I was willing to live with this...

After a while longer, the irock would cut out altogether. The red LED would come on, but the radio station at the chosen frequency would still come through.

I haven't abused my irock. It sits on my car seat at all times. This is a bummer because I really like listening to Stephen King on the 45 minute drive part of my commute. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Works just fine!
I'm not sure what the other two critics expected, but this product works just fine. I needed a way to store my Kodak EasyShare Digital pictures while I was away from home and away from a computer without having to buy multiple SDD (Secure Digital Data) Cards.

Basically it was a plug and play deal. My 40GB iPod was set up for the Belkin Media Reader and all I did was plug it into the iPod, inserted the SDD card and it began to import my pictures. Don't expect blazing speeds like your desktop or laptop computer, REMEMBER this is a "portable" device!! Once my pics were imported, I unplugged the Belkin Reader and took the iPod to my computer. It took a couple of minutes to import the pics from the SDD card to the iPod, but it was faster than I expected.

I connected the iPod to my computer (Windows XP) to access it as a removable hard drive. I accessed the iPod drive and found my pics. It was that simple!! Each SDD card that gets inserted into the Belkin Reader is saved as a "Roll" (EX. Roll 1, Roll 2). Erasing the SDD card and deleting Imported pics (aka "Roll 1, Roll 2") from the iPod was simple too. Just follow the instructions.

I did also check to see if I could Add pictures to my "Collection" from the iPod while using the EasyShare Software and that worked just fine too.

All in all this product has performed as I expected and works just fine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product for an iPod!
Well if people are looking for a lightning fast reader for their memory cards, get a USB2 reader for your computer. This is an iPod! The fact that this thing can read media cards and put all my files onto my iPod, my pictures, homework, whatever, and transfer them between my Tungsten T palm pilot SD card expansion slot is awesome! I would have no trouble reccomending this media reader to others who want FUNCTIONALITY not a card reading rocketship.

3-0 out of 5 stars Works with Sony Memory Stick, but NOT Memory Stick PRO
I bought this device to download pictures from the Memory Sticks used by my Sony digital camera when I am on vacation and away from my computer.

The device works as advertised. It takes me 3-4 minutes to download a full 128 MB Memory Stick. No, that isn't super fast but it wasn't a problem for me.

The biggest negative on this device for me was the fact that it can't read the new Memory Stick PRO media.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as some reviewers say
Yes, it isn't very fast (about half or a third as fast as uploading to the computer in my experience) and it does tax the iPod battery, both negative qualities.... but its not as bad as some have said, and it definitely works as advertised.

To be honest though, I've only used it with 256MB cards, but I've used it for 6MP full size .jpgs (about 2.5MB) AND for RAW files (~6MB) from a Nikon D70 and it works equally fine for both. The RAW files obviously take longer, but there are less of them per card, so big deal.

Just as a rough estimation, I'd guess I could transfer somewhere between 1-2 gigs of photos before the iPod battery died.

Overall, if you are going somewhere that you can't bring your powerbook its a worthy investment. Its a lot cheaper than buying a couple gigabytes of flash memory (I only paid $82).

2-0 out of 5 stars It works... sort of.
I bought this product to store the RAW Canon Digital Rebel photos of my Australia trip. Instead of buying a set of expensive flash cards, I kept my 2 512 MB flash cards and copied the results at the end of the day.
The good:
In the end, it worked and saved me a lot of money, since I already owned an iPod.
The bad: where do I start?
- Copying 512 MB of data almost completely drains the iPod battery. Don't even think about copying more. It doesn't give you a good piece of mind to see the battery indicator go down quickly. Quickly, I decided to fill up the flashcard up to 75% capacity, to have some margin.
- It's EXTREMELY slow. 26 minutes for 512 MB. Not really an issue for me, since I never took more than 50 pictures/day, but other may find this a problem.
- Media Reader battery usage. A set of 4 AAA allowed me to copy roughly 10 512 MB copies. When the batteries run out, everything still seems to work fine until it stops after, say, 12 of the 50 pictures on the card. There's no indication at all about what happened.
- Software Robustness. From time to time, it wouldn't start copying or stop in the middle of a copying session. Restarting always solved the problem, but if this happened at the end, your iPod battery might already be drained by then.

Conclusion: it worked for me, but I can only recommend it if you are really really cash strapped, are a amateur who doesn't shoot that much and already own an iPod with some spare gigabyte. Otherwise you just don't bother.
