TuneBuds nano unveiled
Griffin Technology today unveiled TuneBuds nano, an earbud and lanyard combination for iPod nano. TuneBuds isolate the listening experience from outside sound by fitting comfortably inside the ears, and are based on Griffin's EarThump design. The device integrates its audio cables in the lanyard, preventing tangled cords while the iPod nano remains accessible for selecting songs or adjusting volume. Three sizes of interchangeable earpads are designed to ensure a secure, comfortable fit. TuneBuds come in black or white to match the iPod nano, and ship with a 30-day guarantee for $35. Griffin is also bundling a free LE version of its iFill software with TuneBuds Nano, which streams MP3 files from thousands of free internet radio stations directly to the iPod.
