If you know someone who has one of the new iPod nanos, there are lots of accessories that can make their nano experience even more enjoyable. Plus, they make great holiday gifts and are available in all price ranges. We asked Mark Fijalkiewicz in our Apple Store to recommend some of his favorites.
“The first thing I suggest that people get for their nanos is a wall charger, like the DLO Power Bug USB AC Adapter ($16), which will charge iPods and other USB device from any AC wall outlet. For protection, the Ifrogz Wrapz ($9) are made with polished silicone and are available in all the colors of the new 4G nanos. Another good case is the Marware Black Sportsuit Convertible ($24), which has both a detachable armband and a detachable clip for added versatility.

“The iHome Clock Radio Audio System For iPod ($88 for silver, $94 for black) is an inexpensive dock that enhances the nano’s sound, plus it comes with dual alarms and a nice backlit LCD display. Moving up a bit in price, the Boston Acoustics Dou-I AM/FM Clock Radio With iPod Dock ($199) delivers great stereo sound with a nice amount of bass, and it’s also one of the nicest sounding radios I’ve heard.

“For earphones and headphones, Skullcandy makes a variety of styles at reasonable prices, like the Skullcandy SC-INKD InkD Earbuds ($19.95) or the Lowrider Headphones ($39.98). At the higher end are the Bang & Olufsen A8 Headphones ($160), which combine the usual Bang & Olufsen style with great sound and comfort.”
