We’re surprised at how often we find ourselves needing a way to connect two sets of headphones to an iPod at the same time, and when we do, this is always the add-on we turn to. Back when we first used iSplitter, it was more expensive than Macally’s IceDuo (now PodDuo), and it’s still larger, but Monster dropped the price and retained its gold-plated quality. The extended cable design will work with any model of iPod, and has done so reliably in all of our tests.

Note: iSplitter is now also sold by Monster as MusicShare.
