imageBelkin today introduced two new iPod add-ons—the TuneTalk and TuneCommand—which add voice recording and wireless control capabilities to the device.

The TuneTalk is an omnidirectional microphone attachment that allows you to record audio such as memos and lectures to your iPod. As with other iPod voice recorders, you can transfer your recorded audio to your computer or listen to it on your iPod. The TuneTalk features a recording indicator LED, foam microphone cover, a flexible neck, and requires no extra software. It works with 3G/4G iPods and will be available later this month for $29.99.

imageBelkin’s TuneCommand is a wireless remote system that lets you control your iPod from up to 150 feet away. The device uses wireless radio frequency technology, enabling you to use it through walls. The remote features eight functions: play/pause, next track, previous track, volume up and down, shuffle songs, and repeat. When used with color screen iPods, the device lets you scroll through photo slideshows wirelessly. TuneCommand is compatible with 3G/4G iPods and the iPod mini. It will ship in August for $49.99.

I’d be interested to know whether this RF remote functions successfully with a series 1 iPod Photo.

Does the Tunecommand have the inteference issues with the “first generation” iPod photos?
This issue reduces the effective range of the remote control devices due to an issue with the headphone port.

So does the remote (not the transmitter) have a headphone jack for you to place the reciever on? cuz if it had a headphone jack, u could listen through the remote from 150 feet lol.
Thats an awesome remote, its kinda like a Navipro EX except wit RF instead of IR.

Do any voice recorders work good enough to use for recording music?  Like solo voice and guitar or a garage band?  How much recording time do you have?
