The iPod is well represented in terms of gadgets and accessories

iHome iA100 Bluetooth Alarm Clock Radio for iPhone/iPod/iPad

Rise and shine, sunshine! This Bluetooth alarm clock radio is a fully customizable (courtesy of the free iHome Sleep downloadable app!) accessory that will start your day off right. And not only will it recharge your iPod, it will also do the same for your iPhone and/or iPad. So there’s your bonus right there; this clock radio is an awesome accessory for all of your Apple devices!

JBL Micro Wireless Speaker

Ear buds are all well and good, but sometimes you just have to let those tunes rip. This speaker lets you stream music wirelessly from any Bluetooth-equipped iPod touch (at least a 5th generation iPod Touch or 7th generation iPod Nano, anyway), as well as from a selection of iPhones and iPad, so, like the iHome, it’s got versatility going for it. It’s portable, has a rechargeable battery, and boasts an impressive bass. What more do you need?

Ultimate Ears BOOM Wireless Speaker/Speakerphone

Speaking of speakers, here’s a 360 degree model that lets you spread the musical joy from your iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad for 15 hours before needing a battery recharge. You can pair it with up to eight Bluetooth-enabled iOS devices, with two of them able to be on at the same time. For those who appreciate true stereo sound, you can pair up two of these speakers for a better sound experience. Then at the end of the day, you can use the alarm feature and wake up to tunes the next morning.

Bose QuietComfort 15 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones

Okay, so maybe you’ve been blasting those tunes a little too loud lately, and perhaps it’s better to go a bit quieter. And since you don’t want to hear the outside world as much as the outside world doesn’t want to hear your awesome music, maybe some noise-cancelling headphones are the way to go. Bose is a well-established, trusted name in audio tech, so you know you can’t go wrong with these headphones.

Dynex Stereo Cassette Adapter

Let’s not forget tunes for your car, and your God-given right to sing along at the top of your lungs with your car windows rolled down. This adapter fits into your stereo cassette player and lets you play your iTunes. It’s actually compatible with most MP3 players and other portable audio gear.

Survivor Case for 5th-Generation Apple iPod Touch

Is there anything sadder than seeing your iPod break? This Survivor case will shield your fifth generation iPod Touch from rain, shock, dirt, vibration, grit, and other environmental nasties. The case is made from polycarbonate and silicone materials, and is water-resistant.

Sure, there’s a lot more accessories out there, but this half-dozen sample takes care of the essentials of owning an iPod, at least in terms of hardware. There’s always stuff like software updates to consider, and for that, consider a Pinterest app for updates and hands-on fixes. There, now you have your iPod hardware and software taken care of.

Born and raised in the Boston area, I was rocketed to New Hampshire, where under the Granite State's yellow sun and lack of income tax, I have gained the powers of super-sarcasm, brilliant creativity, and slightly disturbing sense of humor.
