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:

All iPods

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.

Full-Sized iPods (color)

iPod mini

Each piece from this collection of four handmade leather iPod mini cases has a hip, urban style and unique enclosure. They’re the Mini Slip Handmade iPod Case, the Mini Fastback Handmade iPod Case, the Mini Clutch Handmade iPod Case, and the Tokyo ‘64 Handmade iPod Case, and come individually wrapped in highly gift-friendly wrapping paper.

 

 

iPod shuffle

Digiana iTube-101 for iPod shuffle - Click Here for Details

This unusually designed three-in-one car charger, FM transmitter and mount for the iPod shuffle includes multiple gooseneck flexing tubes to let you position your iPod shuffle wherever you want while you drive.

 

 

Proporta Crystal Case iPod shuffle - Click Here for Details

This new clear hard case for the iPod shuffle features replaceable rubber Control Pad covers and bands between the case’s top and bottom plastic parts. A lanyard is also included.

 

 

We’ll have plenty more to say on these new iPod accessories in the days to come - and there are some other surprises in store, too.

The ibeats look kind of cool but I can’t help but think that they offer a potential thief a well lit road map to stealing your ipod

“The ibeats look kind of cool but I can’t help but think that they offer a potential thief a well lit road map to stealing your ipod”

i think they work with any audio player, not just the ipod. after all, i dont see the serial jack thingie, or even a third “ring” around the headphone jack.

I just purchase a Ibeat. Sound from Ibeat as good as apple earbuds. The light that come off wire are pretty bright. If your in the dark, inside a building or mid day the neon is bright. If your direct sun light it look like it off. The response button on the Ibeat is cool it like equalizer to your music. I would not worry about theft pretty much.Amost everybody has a I-POD these day. And people walking around with white headphone could that be a I-Pod most likey.
