TuneBuds Mobile SmartTalk
Griffin Technology has announced updated versions of its TuneBuds Mobile and SmartTalk devices for the iPhone, iPod nano 4G, Touch 4G, and Classic 120GB. Both products now feature inline microphones for communication or voice recording. The TuneBuds Mobile earphones include several sizes of washable ear cushions. The ControlMic button allows users to answer iPhone calls or send them to voice-mail in Phone mode, while offering play, skip, and pause controls for music tracks.
SmartTalk features the same the same microphone and controls as the TuneBuds, but without the integrated earphones. A jack is provided that allows users to connect their favorite headphones, while retaining phone and recording functionality. The TuneBuds Mobile and SmartTalk are now available, with prices of $40 and $20, respectively.
