Three accessories every iPhone user should own
The iPhone is notorious for having a less than spectacular battery life. Up until now it meant carrying a coiled up Apple cable around with you or a portable charger to ensure you could stay connected. The Scosche flipSYNC offers a far more compact and convenient way of charging devices. Designed to sit on a key ring and no bigger than a car alarm fob, the flipSYNC opens to reveal a portable USB wire and iPod connector. Recently crowned by MacWorld UK as 2010’s ‘Best iPod and iPhone accessory’, the flipSYNC allows you to charge and/or sync with your laptop while on the go. The flipSYNC retails at £15.99, is compatible with all iPhone models and is available from www.eoutlet.co.uk.
V-MODA Remix Remote headphones
The V-MODA Remix Remote in-ear headphones have been created to enhance the listening experience and dynamics of today’s music as well as capitalising on the capabilities of the iPhone. A built in remote and high fidelity microphone allows hands-free access for users to answer calls and control their music library while a newly tuned 9mm V-MASQUE neodymium dynamic driver creates the absolute in clarity and the perfect balance in sound.
The Remix Remote headphones are designed for heavy use. They have a solid yet lightweight all-metal construction, medical grade soft silicone fittings offering a more comfortable and secure fit, a Kevlar reinforced cable and a 45-degree angled plug to withstand stress. For gym users, the detachable ear hooks featuring patent-pending Active Flex technology, allow the headphones to adjust independently to each ear regardless of the ear hook’s position. The V-MODA Remix Remotes are available through Apple retail stores for £89.95. They are compatible with the iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4.
