View Full Version : ipod and headphones

October 15th, 2005, 05:06 PM
Hello all!
I was wondering if anyone could recommend some good ipod headphones? I really don't like the ones that came with the ipod (I have the 4th gen 20 gig, b & w screen), so I'd like some in-ear ones, or maybe even some over the ear ones (I would love the bose noise-cancelling, but those are $300!). Any recommendations for something for under $100?

and can you have a program in ubuntu that is able to be used similar to itunes? to load and unload music/mp3s?

Thanks for your help :) If I need to put this in another section feel free to move it!

for the program, I'm using gtkpod. I suppose there are others also, but this was the first one that I found and I've never seen a reason to even try others ;)

And the headphones.. I'd recommend getting some Koss ones, The Plug if you want earbuds, otherwise PortaPro's are great..

The sony earbuds that came with my mp3 player were good quality, until they broke.

I heard amaroK was good for managing ipods.

I've never had good luck with those earbuds actually staying put. I must have misshapen ears or something.

I recommend the Griffin in ear add-on things for the iPod headphones- I have the EXACT same iPod as you do, and I use those and they are great. $9.99USD.

I use gtkpod but I'll try amaroK..
