Griffin Technology (http://www.griffintechnology.com) has released
updated versions of their TuneBuds Mobile and SmartTalk audio
solutions for the iPhone and iPod. TuneBuds Mobile and SmartTalk are
now both equipped with inline microphones compatible with iPhone,
iPod nano 4G, iPod touch 2G and iPod classic 120 GB.
TuneBuds Mobile (US$39.99) offers earphones with buds designed to fit
the ear snugly. They have washable ear cushions in a selection of
sizes, and conform to the ear. Built-in is Griffin’s ControlMic, a
high-sensitivity microphone and control button. The TuneBuds Mobile
cord is made of nylon braiding.
SmartTalk ($19.99) is a headphone adapter solution with the same
icrophone and control button features as TuneBuds Mobile, but which
allows users to plug in their own favorite earphones. The ControlMic
button allows Play, Pause, and Skip forward controls. SmartTalk
features a 30-inch cable sheathed in nylon braiding.
