so I just got a refurb 2G nano, and the included headphones are short. very short. like, I can't even get the nano into my pants pocket when the buds are in my ears. after a bit of snooping, I discovered that Apple makes headphone with a shorter cord that are meant to be used with the remote (so that the total cord length is long enough). I think these shorter buds are what I got. I just compared them to the buds that came with my friend's 2G Shuffle, and they are a good 8 inches shorter. Question is, is Apple shipping the short buds with all iPods now, or did I get them by accident? If so, would they send me a new pair?
