The headphone you're mentioned seems only complys with prior ipods, too thin for the new ones to embody that socket jack.
Infact you may like to get a docking which come with remote control function.
I mean the extra circuit for the socket will need to embed inside
I have heard that remotes can be made for the 5G by accessing the dock connector - have yet to see one available though.
Sorry , may be you get me wrong , you may agreed the actually socket thing embeded inside would bigger than that you could see at outside.
I 'm afraid no headphone for video ipod could let you remote control the playlist , if infrared port didn't make sense in your case.
Yeah, what I meant was that there is likely to be a cabled remote that you could use portably that would work by connecting into the dock connector (rather than beside the headphone jack). I have a 3g iPod with the remote, and I do use it. I am interested to see if a similar portable remote will be developed for the 5g.
Not Apple product - but found this
So it looks like it can be done (although hopefully a lot neater only using the dock connector!)
Mmm, that's why they accommodated one perfectly adequately on the Mini??
that should do the job. pity it doesn't use the audio out from the dock, but being un-amplified it would be a little harder. and it's cheeep, so it's all good.
plus looking like the old apple ones can't be bad
The audio out from the Dock is (at least on my iPod video) louder by far than the audio coming out of the headphone jack. They could have put an adjustable attenuator (aka volume control) in the remote, and used the audio coming off the dock. Also, it seems like there must be some way to get headphone audio out of the dock, because on my universal dock, the volume control on the iPod works even with audio taken from the line out on the back of the dock.
ok, fine, i was wrong, i assumed that it was line only, yeah yeah yeah. actually on my 3G, it's volume control doesn't affect the out port on the dock which it shipped with.
but yeah, ok, i was wrong. and i don't admit that much, so feel happy i did this time. now shut up.
Woah there, I didn't mean to offend you or anything. Just pointing out something you may not have known. My 4G iPod's volume control has no effect on the line out of the dock that came with it or the universal dock, so it is something that's unique to the 5G iPod.
Oddly, when using the Apple remote with my 4G iPod in the universal dock, the volume on the line out changes, but the volume on the iPod remains fixed. However, on the 5G, the remote actually controls the volume on the iPod (ie, the volume slider moves back and forth). The scroll wheel also adjusts the line out volume on the 5G, but has no effect at all on the 4G.
The scroll wheel volume on my 5G does not adjust the line out volume when connected to my car (using a dock connector plug. i.e. not using the headphone out on the top of the iPod, but the dock-style plug on the bbottom of the iPod).
Mine behaves the same way. The scroll wheel volume control does affect the line out volume on the universal dock (I just tested it) with the 5G, but not the 4G.
Hmm, £0.99 + £5.99 shipping, is £6.98, convert to USD... $12.21, versus a very shady (and un-Apple like) $18, plus shipping...
I think I've made my decision, too bad I can't charge at the same time though :O
am i the only person who knows about this??
its a WIRELESS remote from Griffin (iTrip, iTalk)..
and for those of you who want something in their car....http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/smartdeckdock/index.php
and why do you NEED a wired remote?
Yes, we're saying the same thing (I hope). Scroll wheel does change line out volume in the universal dock, but it does not change line out volume using the cable straight from the iPod bottom connector to 3.5mm stereo plug (used to plug in to my car's aux in).
i have a big problem about what apple didwith the remote port. now when i have the 'air click' (new one for 5g) then i cant use the chargeer with it. and... im not able to use any old accesories for the ipod which really sucks cus i have lots of things...
