Belkin iPod Shuffle Adaptr
Belkin this morning addressed the complaints of those wanting to use more advanced headphones with Apple's third-generation iPod shuffle and launched its Headphone Adapter for the music player. The simple add-on gives any typical earbuds or headphones with a 3.5mm headphone jack a remote much like Apple's own pack-in model, including the ability to invoke VoiceOver. It's not known if other iPods receive similar features.
The Apple-sanctioned adapter sells for $20 and should be available this week in North America while Asia, Europe and Australia will receive it in August.
