Having an iPod is not enough in terms of enjoying a great music experience. You should get quality earphones that deliver a high fidelity sound. We got two models from Cresyn: the C750E earbud and the CS-HP500 bendable headphone. Both come with a leather carrying bag, and the C750E has two additional ear tips so it can fit better in any ear size. We tested them for several weeks while walking the city with our iPod Touch (tested here).

The C750E has a 3.94 feet (1.2 m) cable, a gold-plated angled 3.5 mm jack, and a shirt clip. The ear buds are T-shaped and go right into the user’s ear canal. As we’ve already said there’s two more ear tips for better adjustment and also replacement (but we do hope nobody looses a tip INSIDE the ear canal!).

The CS-HP500 has both a gold-plated 3.5 mm jack and also a 6.3 mm version. The 4.92 feet (1.5 m) cable is kinda short for a headphone but since it’s supposed to be portable we didn’t mind the small length. We still had to put some of the cable inside our pants pocket or we’d look like a reject cyborg from a bad 80’s sci-fi movie. The padded headband has a hinge in the middle and the earmuffs pivots inside so the whole thing can be folded, like a some headphones for DJs.
