IBNeko's Journal-Nyo~!
My earphones just broke on me. Well, the left ear anyways. And they were the iPod earphones... and the only earphones I have right now. Which sucks.

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.

Well, there's that replacement high-capacity battery for 1G/2G iPods from OWC - a couple new users on xlr8yourmac (IIRC) reported a hair over 23 hours maximum. (ie when left to just play, no user fiddling, backlight illumination, etc)

Rather a pain about the headphones.. a wire problem, I'd guess? Certainly, see if they'll just swap them under warranty - shouldn't be a problem. (And don't forget that quite a few credit cards offer automatic warranty extensions/doubling, too!)

Mmm, that's awesome. I'd love to be able to run the iPod for 20+ hours...

As for the headphones, it was a buzzing problem, originally- it'd buzz when it hit a certain frequency. Then, after I discovered the grey/wiremesh cap was loose, I opened it and poked around, and somehow managed to completely kill it. I'm probably still going to exchange it, but I've gotten a $2.50 (was $8 with s&h, but I had a $5.50 gift certificate that I had yet to spend) pair of earphone from amazon. Hopefully they'll arrive sometime soon.

Oh, dude, I could get like, 2-3 of those, then swap them out as necessary~ like regular batteries. =^.^= And while each would only give me about 10 hours (130% of 8 hours), that'd be more than enough... ::dorky::

Are all of the information in the iPod box? If so, Do you want me to check the "guarentee" papers?

nah, I'll just use daddy's reciept. And yes, they should repair/replace it, so a guarentee check shouldn't be necessary.
