Found 3rd Oct 2009

I wondered if someone can help me, i purchased an ipod shuffle 4gb from ebay and the seller did not put the original earphones with them but 2 other sets of apple earphones. Upon the item being delivered today i realised that you need "special" earphones in order to use volume and move tracks etc. Ive been told the control is on the lead on the right earpiece?

Ive put a link below to show you the model I have any jut wondered if anyone new where i could buy the correct headphones at a decent price as the ipod only cost me £20 !!

thanks in advance xx


aren't they the iphone ones.

3.5mm Headphones is perfect compatible with iPhone, you can enjoy stereo music sound and also can make or receive calls freely ad conveient with ON/OFF switch. Extra light weight in-the-ear earphones special for iPhone and also for all portable audio devices which with 3.5mm jack

Web exclusive price

(note: i have never bought from these guys but if it is the same ones you get with the iphone, they're the clicker on the small rubber bit).
"The clicker already handled triple-duty with play / pause / skip to the next song. A single click pauses your music, then a single click again will play your music. Two quick clicks will forward to the next song. Now, there is a FOURTH option. With a triple-click, you can go to a previous song. Remember, you can keep moving backward or forward through your playlist if you click in rapid succession, then pause momentarily for each clicking command to register, then proceed."

they are the ones with the volume and change track control on the headphone speaker, i bought a ipod and they came with standard apple headphones so i cant change track or volume as i need the special 4th gen earphones apparently ???
