If you haven’t seen Sneak Peeks in The Free iPod Book, you’re missing out on some great advance looks at new iPod accessories. While you download the Book, here are some of the newest accessories that have arrived at iLounge over the past several days:
Design Annex iBeat Illuminating Headphones - Click Here for Details
These reasonably priced headphones light up when you press the power switch, and can pulse in response to the beat of your music. Five colors are available - the two we’ve tested thus far (blue and white) are surprisingly cool in person.
Sharper Image iPulse Speakers with ColorSync LEDs - Click Here for Details
This new speaker system from Sharper Image synchronizes pulses of light to your music, using one of a series of detachable connectors called ZipConnect to connect to your iPod. A retractable headphone plug is shipped with the unit; charging ZipConnects for Dock Connector iPods and the iPod shuffle are sold separately.
Sharper Image iSphere Stereo Speakers and Subwoofer - Click Here for Details
This ball-shaped stereo audio system connects to your iPod with a headphone jack connector called ZipConnect; charging ZipConnects for Dock Connector iPods and the iPod shuffle are sold separately.
