today announced new accessories for iPod users. The new products include the iWallet, the iShare Earbud Splitter, Xwire Gold Audio cables, and the iPod Cassette Adapter.
The iWallet is a tri-fold leather holder designed to hold both your iPod and other important gear like money, credit cards, and a key. The clip-on Earbud pouch is equally suitable for use as a lipstick holder or holder for another small accessory. It’s available with each of XtremeMac’s iPod bundles, or as a standalone unit as well. The bundles with the iWallet run US$29.95 to $89.95.
The iShare Earbud Splitter enables more than one user to listen to the iPod’s music. It uses XtremeMac’s Xwire Gold technology and is molded in Apple-white plastic. It lets users listen up to 8 feet away from each other. The iShare Earbud Splitter carries a retail price of US$9.95.
The Xwire Gold Audio cables are 7 feet long and also molded in Apple-white coverings. The audio cables have a plug on one end that connects to the iPod headphone jack. Three cables emerge — one goes to a home stereo system or other audio source equipped with stereo RCA cables, while the other terminates in a 3.5 mm stereo mini plug which can be connected to computer speakers, car stereos auxiliary inputs, or other devices equipped with a standard 1/8 inch mini plug. The last cable sports a 3.5 mm mini female plug that works as an extension for the other two cables. The Xwire Gold Audio cables run $9.95.
The iPod Cassette Adapter enables iPod users to attach their device to a portable or car cassette player. The iPod Cassette Adapter costs $19.95.
