Q: My friends have been saying that Apple is gearing up to release a new iPod. Is this true? If so, what’s new about it?

- Sujay

A: We’ve been getting multiple copies of this question every day for a couple weeks now, and so we’ll briefly address it:

Quite frankly, there’s always something new coming. iLounge doesn’t know anything more than the average consumer, but current rumors still indicate a ‘true’ video iPod—perhaps with one large touchscreen covering the entire front surface—is due to arrive by the holiday shopping season, but as always, nobody will know for sure until it appears.

With this in mind, our recommendation to potential iPod buyers is always to evaluate the current iPod lineup to see how it meets your needs as it stands today. If you feel the current iPods are worth the money for what you need them for today, then a new iPod being released in the near (or not-so near) future shouldn’t have an impact on that.

2-year-old shuffle?  They’ve only been on the market for a little over 16 months.

well, if there are new ipods in the same price range, it’s probable that the current ones will get cheaper when newer ones come out (the mini is the exception, i guess…)

regarding the Sennheiser HZR 62… You can purchase from them and for a (hefty) $25 fee they can cut down the 6 meter cord to your liking.

I got one with a 1ft cord (a bit too short) for $59 including shipping.  A bit expensive but for someone that is hard of hearing on one side, it’s the only solution out there…

It is not too big, and has a built in clip on the back so you can easily attach it to your shirt, belt etc.

It has a slider control for each channel.

I highly recommend this.
