The new IDR (Increased Dynamic Range) noise isolating earphones will give users the ability to play, pause, adjust volume, skip tracks, navigate playlists and hear the name of the song and artist with the press of a button. Scosche is also developing an inline control adapter kit that allows consumers to use any standard set of headphones and enjoy all of the advanced features of the third generation iPod shuffle. The inline control also allows users to plug their shuffle into any vehicles auxiliary input and maintain full control of the iPod."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1236944898.usr18053.jpeg" /></p><p>As someone mentioned in the forums on announcement day, it was only a matter of time before an adapter popped up for the new Shuffle.&nbsp; Not a bad idea, honestly.&nbsp; It's obvious that having to use Apple's headphones is going to be the biggest gripe with the new shuffle (which, incidentally, I'll have on Tuesday).&nbsp; Did anyone else order one, or am I alone?</p>
