Well, somehow I've managed to blow my left iPod earbud. Not sure why Apple would allow the volume level to be high enough to do that, but nonetheless, it's happend. Now, bass has a slight "rattle" to it....it's driving me up the wall. Yes, I should just go ahead an upgrade them to the Sony's or whatever, but does the 1-yr warranty cover replacement? I also have the 2-year TAP from CompUSA. Does that cover headphones? Just curious if anyone has done this (I know I could research it, but don't feel like it). Thanks.
