You might think your iPod is awesome, even when using the basic headphones or earbuds that come with the device. Just wait until you upgrade to a specialized pair of headphones for your iPod. You will never look at your iPod in the same way. Specialized headphones are capable of pumping your music of your iPod with more in-depth sounds and melodies- something that the earphones that come with the device don't do.
Features to Consider
With this being said, there are a wide variety of headphones for iPod. It is important to consider what features you are looking for in a headphone set before buying one. Do you want a set of ear buds, which sit inside the ear, or a set of stereo headphones that cover the exterior of the ear? Some users prefer stereo headphones because they seem to be a more comfortable fit, while others prefer ear buds because of their compact size and flexibility.
Mic or No Mic
If you are planning to use your headphones with your iPod only, there is no use for a set that has a microphone. If you are planning on using the earphones for all of your iDevices, including your iPhone, then a microphone is a smart choice. An earphone set with a built-in microphone is overly useful when switching between your music to an incoming phone call. The process is seamless and once the call has been ended, your music will start bumpin' again!
Color and Style
Let's face it, in today's world headphones are seen as an accessory. Because they are typically placed around your head, a headphone is easily visible when worn. Be sure to choose a headphone set that matches your style. There are endless styles and colors when it comes to headphones. For example, Skullcandy (one of the most popular headphone manufacturers) has started to manufacturer headphone sets with college logos on them. How cool would it be to walk around your college campus with custom headphones that support your favorite sports team?
Skullcandy also is known for producing iPod headphones in the largest variety of colors. Some of their headphone models are available in over 10 colors! Can't decide on one color? That's okay. Scosche has catered to the indecisive crowd be creating headphones that have interchangeable ear buds in a variety of colors.
Don't let all of these features overwhelm you when buying a pair of headphones for your iPod. It should be fun shopping for headphones and even more fun when you finally get to use them!
