pic Marware has provided iLounge with an exclusive first look at the company’s forthcoming new iPod shuffle case. The silicone case, tentatively named “Sport Grip for iPod shuffle,” turns Apple’s new compact music player into a keychain. Marware’s Ed Martin told iLounge that the company is hoping to also include a carabiner and a lanyard with the case. The Sport Grip will be available in a rainbow of colors in either a 3-pack or 5-pack, according to Martin. Pricing was not disclosed.

Gordy, The keyring attachment is removable and we’ll also include a carabiner and lanyard option so you won’t be limited.  I checked out the Backstage Sport Grip/SportRope combo. Pretty sweet!  “Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups indeed”!

Won’t help at the gym though, since there is no belt clip, and no moisture protection over the control pad.  Wonder why someone hasn’t released a protective case with a clip?  For my particular usage, that is the only thing that makes any sense.

irun5k,

the front of the shuffle has moisture protection.  the back is what you should worry about.  see the shuffle dissection for details.

For jogging or for use in the car, I use the SportRope. I have an Alpine deck with rca inputs in the back. I have the rca to headphone cable run from the back of the deck to front and out the change tray. I get in the car, pop the Shuffle from the SportRope and plug it in. When I park, I just pull out the headphone cable and put it back into the USB cover. I am suprised that anyone needs a clip. When I run, I just put it under my shirt. No probs yet. The original lanyard was ruff on the short hairs of the nape! Go SportRope!
