The Apple iPod is by far the most popular series of MP3 players and some would go as far as to say that they are the lifeblood of the MP3 player market and to enjoy your iPod to the fullest extent possible, you should own all five of the following accessories.
An iPod Protective Case
Most iPods are built strong and are very durable, but after years or even months of owning an iPod, the average iPod will take on enough damage to permanently effect or even destroy an Apple iPod. Your iPod will likely spend most of its time in your pocket along with your keys, spare change, and lord knows what else and in order to protect your iPod from your pocket content and the usual drop from time to time, you’ll definitely want to get some armor for your iPod.
A Wall and or Car Charger
Right out of the box, your newly purchased iPod will feature a charging cable, but unfortunately it’ll be a charging cable that will only charge when plugged into a computer. Your daily commute usually doesn’t consist of sitting by the computer – unless you’re me – and you’ll need a wall or car charger handy to make sure that your iPod doesn’t run out of battery life while you’re out and about in the world.
High Definition Headphones
There was once a time when the Apple iPod headphones were the best headphones on the market, but unfortunately those days are gone and the typical iPod headphones that the iPod ships with just won’t do by today’s standards. Nowadays you might want to ditch your iPod headphones for a pair of noise canceling or professional headphones that’ll allow you to hear your favorite songs as your favorite artists intended them to be heard.
An iPod Dock
Listening to an iPod via headphones is awesome, but are sure to be times when you’ll want to enjoy listening to your iPod’s playlists without being bound to headphones – and for situations like this, I strongly recommend purchasing a high quality iPod docking system. iPod docks are easy to come across and you’ll be able to find portable docks, iPod docks built into stereo systems, and docks that are tailor made to make your iPod playlist sound better than ever. An iPod dock is a great iPod accessory to have around when you’re doing some house cleaning, trying to entertain a large group of company, or when you just want to let your ears take a break from wearing headphones all day long.
A Car Audio Adapter
One of the best ways to listen to your iPod is via your car’s audio system. There’s just nothing like cruising to your favorite jams and in order to accomplish this favorite pass-time, you’ll need an iPod car audio adapter. Regardless of your car’s audio setup, there is likely an iPod car audio adapter out there that can fit your needs including an auxiliary input adapter, cassette player adapter, and the popular iTrip audio adapter that’ll allow you to playback your iPod’s audio via a designated radio station.
