Anyone know if these will work on the new ipod shuffle or not? As it looks like a simple headphone jack connection? Will make my life far easier if they are so i dont get flappy cables everyhwhere when im biking.

Everything Logitech ever made has had bad sound and I’m sure these will follow suit.

Cardboard anyone?

Well that’s funny because I have Logitech X230 speakers for my other PC and they sounds excellent.  If you read reviews on most of their other speakers, everyone agrees they are great products.  I don’t know about their headphones, but don’t be ignorant and say everything they’ve made sounds horrible…

This should work with anything with a Mini Plug…. so as long as you can plug in a headphone… this will work. Only down side is that you only have 4 controls…. ON, OFF, Vol.UP & Vol.DOWN. You will NOT be able to do Back or Forward Track.

And Keep in mind that the receiver you have to plug into your device is pretty big (about half the size of a Video iPod)... so if you plan on using this with the brand new Tiny little Shuffle…. the whole thing will definetly no longer be small.

True but when im riding ive got a backpack on so i dump it in there with a headphone port on the back of my backpack for my headphones. Which have habit of trying to strangle me. So size really isnt an issue.
