    A 1GB shuffle is now £32 with free earphones, but iPod earphones cost £20. So if I was buying the apple earphones, I may as well buy a shuffle and get a back-up mp3 player for £12?

    Would you not agree?

    Sounds like a plan. :D Have you checked the refurbished section for your Apple store? I got my iPod Shuffle for US$41.34 with free shipping.

    The iPod headphones are a pain to use in my ears as well. :eek:

    The earphones that come with iPods are not the same ones that Apple sells separately. If you like the includes earphones, then it is a plan.

    lol shows you how much Apple is over-charging you for those ear phones :p

    But yeah, good plan! I recently bought a Shuffle (My first iPod woo!) and thinking about it that why, why couldn't Apple knock £20 off the price and let me use some Earphones I already have ;)

    Ah well, haha. I like the idea that I'm telling people I'm an Apple geek... or part of the crowd D:

    (Probably the latter. I can't really wear my iMac)

    there aren't any in the UK store :( I had a look before buying my Shuffle.
