    No mention that the new iPod touch includes those earphones, unlike the previous model.

    "Headphones

    * Earphones
    * Frequency response: 20Hz to 20,000Hz
    * Impedance: 32 ohms"

    So you have to buy them separately now? Ugh.

    The main reason these were included with the 3rd gen is for the microphone, as you could use voice control. Now that the touch has a mic built in, Apple probably figured they could get away with not including it since it isn't really needed. And they were right.

    It's just another expense.

    But I won't be buying them from Apple, I'll probably get them from some Hong Kong ebayer.

    On the tech specs page it shows the earbuds and mike. Pretty sure they are included. I never use those pieces of crap anyways.
