“Griffin Technology Inc, innovator of exciting hardware and software products for the Mac and iPod, today announced the Griffin EarJams. The Griffin EarJams are a totally new kind of product – they snap onto your iPod’s existing earbud-style headphones and significantly increase the bass output, volume level and comfort. The EarJams turn your existing earbuds into in-ear style headphones. A sonic enhancing cone extends the sound directly into the ear and is protected and made comfortable by slip-on soft ear pads. Three sizes of removable pads are included for the perfect individual fit. The package also includes a small canvas carrying case. The new Griffin EarJams will be shown Tuesday at Apple Expo Paris and will ship in September for just $19.99.”

When do we see some real reviews. Isn’t all this comment rather speculative (albeit the quality of speculation varies, but is still speculation). I’d rather adopt a wait and see attitude. - Viva la Bush (NOT).

I agree with tonyc wait and hear what they are like before you start dissing or praising them. To me the design seems to be a good idea, as for the sound lest wait…

I just don’t like how the extension on the EX71s pull on your left earbud.

On the other hand, the ipod earbuds are just fine.  Except they don’t offer that much bass.  And if you listen to your music VERY loudly…which some people do, can cause some click in the earbuds when u have bass booster on.  If you don’t listen loudly, don’t really bother to buy new headphones.

Hey Steve, kindly get back to me when you have purchased the iPod battery from PDA Smart will ya? My iPod battery is dying and I’m not too sure about the battery from store such like PDA Smart. Is it really that reliable? I wonder if there are any newer type of battery that can fuel my iPod to greater lengths!

Don’t know if anyone noticed this but on the Griffin site they are offering them for $15 if you pre-order ‘em now.  Very tempting.

I use small Jabra Ear-Jels on my pod buds, the difference in sound quality is quite remarkable.
