Macally rolls out new accessories for iPod, iPhone

image

Macally has announced three new products for the iPod, iPhone, and iPhone 3G. The HifiTune is a stereo headset for the iPhone and iPhone 3G which features a metal alloy body, an integrated, in-line microphone with a button for call and playback control, six pairs of included silicone fittings in three sizes, and an included carrying case. Available now, the HifiTune sells for $50. Macally’s IP-PH808 Four Way Privacy Screen Protective Overlay for iPhone 3G is a screen protector which works as a privacy screen to keep onlookers from seeing what’s on the screen, whether the device is being used in vertical or horizontal orientation. It is made from an anti-smudge and glare resistant material, attaches with non-damaging, residue-free adhesive, and is available now for $20. Finally, the mCup is an adjustable automobile cup holder mount for the iPod and iPhone. It features an adjustable base for a secure fit in most car cup holders, a flexible neck and swiveling holder for adjusting the viewing angle, and three selectable holder positions to fit the iPod, iPhone, and other devices. It will be available soon and will sell for $20.

The HiFiTune looked promising even while trying them. The fabric used instead of plastic really makes it a novelty… but after only a week the Stop/Play button stopped working on me. Considering how much I’ve paid for them 49.00 + Shipping to Canada… They really are NOT a good deal.

My suggestion: if you’re to buy in-hear headphones you’re better off getting yourself some life warranted earbuds (those HiFiTune have only 30 day warranty ) or get some in store extra warranty. Based on my readings and experience, iPhone oriented headphones weakest point is the Stop/Start button. It won’t take for it to break after a fair usage of clicking + double clicking + triple clicking.

My two cents.
