Macally readies iPod Nano dockable headphones

Plug and play

Top three mobile application threats

Don't want to carry your iPod Nano in a pocket or around your neck? Then how about carrying it on your head? Accessory maker MacAlly has announced a set of cordless headphones that incorporate their own iPod Nano dock.

Like Macally's older Shuffle-connectable headphones, the mTune-N's right speaker sports a slot for the music player. The Nano's clickwheel controls are accessible through a circular hole cut into the side of the slot.

The mTune-N's chunky leather-padded 4cm-cone speakers provide "exceptional" stereo sound, Macally says. They weigh 173g (6.1oz) - but you can add 43g (1.5oz) to that when you plug in the Nano. While the 'phones will only dock with the Nano, they can be connected to any other iPod, MP3 player, computer, TV or hi-fi the conventional way: there's a 3.5mm stereo jack socket into which you can plug a standard cable to link the two devices together.

The mTune-N is due to ship mid-February for around £40 in the UK and $50 in the US. ®
