I definitely wanted to talk about a recent iPod accessory package that I bought from Amazon. I think I like it simply because it is one of those packages that you really never expect to be as good as it is. When you have an iPod classic like I have and you prefer not to move on to the iTouch for your music (let’s face it, there is no way you can fit all of your cool music onto one iTouch), you’re going to need accessories. I had looked across the Internet for a number of accessory packages and I really couldn’t find anything that included all of the really cool stuff that I wanted. Then, I found that there was a really great accessory pack on Amazon. I found that it was a fantastic deal and I really didn’t have to worry about paying for because I had already saved up a bunch of money for what I expected to be expensive accessories.
If there’s one thing that I actually do hate about my iPod, is something that a court has nothing to do with Apple, but of course the manufacturers of the accessories. Why are they so crazy expensive? If I had not found this accessory pack, I probably would’ve been out at least a couple of hundred dollars trying to buy all of these similar items.
At any rate, I have used all of the stuff in this particular package and I’m very excited by the fact that everything seemed to be pretty high quality considering it is probably made in some slum in China. I am not sorry for saying that, because you have to remember that people in China are going through some pretty tough economic conditions.
I have to say that they definitely advanced the cable quite a bit and quite frankly I am really pleased with the quality of the leather cases that have come with the set. The plastic cases are not as good, of course, but they are almost never as good as the leather ones. Well, I guess I can see that these are real leather cases because they are probably vinyl and I could tell that they may break over the long term, but I did get this entire set for $20. I don’t know very many other set for $20 that are Apple approved, but I’m pretty sure that this one is probably not because it is so cheap.
I also the fact that there is a couple of cords that enable you to plug into either your car or a simple electric socket. I don’t think it is that grows on trees, but it is pretty fantastic.
I of course have a complaint because I always have a complaint about something, but the headphones that come with it are of course complete and utter junk. That has been one of the negatives of the iPod system for some time, and I really hope that at some point they team up with somebody like Bose or Sennheiser, companies that really understand what they’re doing when it comes to audio quality.
A guy can dream, can’t he?
