I'm tempted to send the earphones home and have someone bring it to the local apple store with my dad's recent iPod purchase and see if they can be exchanged for a new pair. That be spiffy. Actually, I think my iPod's still under warranty right now... it was a birthday present, and I believe we got it after my birthday, which means it should still be good for exchanging and stuff? Battery, if it runs less than 4 hours, can still be exchanged for 39?49 dollars, I think...
Although I'd really rather just spend the time and possibly, 10-30 dollars signing up for deals at freeipod.com or whatever that site be and just get a new iPod. 20 GB, and shiny.
Anyone got any earphone (or ear buds. The ones that fit in your ear..) suggestions? Apple has ones that cost $35... T.T and that's with the educational discount.
