Scosche FM Transmitter/Charger for All iPods

As contrasted with Scosche's Digital FM Transmitter, the FM Transmitter/Charger lacks a LCD tuning screen, but enables you to broadcast iPod audio to a select number of car radio stations (88.1-88.9; 107.1-107.9) by toggling a switch on the unit's bottom. It comes with two cables - one a Dock Connector for most iPods, capable of playing music and charging, the other a headphone port plug for all other devices, not capable of charging.

Nyko Symphony Compact Powered Speaker System and Case for iPod nano

This combination of a genuine leather case, rechargeable battery pack, and double-speaker system provides an all-in-one way for you to substantially protect your iPod nano (aluminum or glossy) and hear its audio. Designed only to power the speakers, the internal battery runs for up to 5 hours, and is recharged by an included wall power supply. You can pull the speakers and connect them to any non-nano device with a 1/8" headphone port.

Nyko Sound Stage Compact Desktop Audio Power Station for iPod nano

Designed for the original iPod nano but just barely able to fit the newer aluminum version, Nyko's Sound Stage is an all-in-one speaker system that uses wall power to charge and perform audio from your iPod. Four speaker drivers are augmented by a bass boost feature Like other Nyko products, clear plastic and metal are used to great effect in the speaker's design; a matching 9-button wireless remote control with iPod menu control is included in the package. iPod synchronization can be handled through a rear pass-through Dock Connector port.

Compatible: All iPods

Ultimate Ears metro.fi 2 Earphones

As the first offering in the company's new metro.fi series of low-end but good-looking earphones, the $80 metro.fi 2 will be the least expensive in-canal design in Ultimate Ears' lineup. Each pair is primarily black with silver accents, and comes with several pairs of clear frosted silicone rubber earpieces. The company's goal is to beat the cheapie in-canal phones sold by companies like Sony, by offering audibly superior clarity and an Ultimate Ears-quality sound signature.
