The iPod shuffle is so damn small it lends itself to customized applications, and Adam Zhang proves that by clipping the tiny player onto a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-F55 headphones. Adam admits that he's "sort of" a do-it-yourselfer, but he didn't need to tap into that vast skillset to dress a few cables and come up with this all-in-one design.
Clever mod, and the shuffle's clamp-on versatility isn't lost, either. Adam can simply unclamp the pint-sized player from his headphones and use it with its included earbuds, too. Sure, those Audio-Technica phones probably sound great, but even the stock buds from Apple are sounding better than they used to. Check out more pics of Adam's result:
By the way, the shuffle is an excellent player, a tremendous value for $80 with its great sound, 1GB storage capacity and micro-size. And yes, I bought it myself—it wasn't a freebie from the Cupertino Fruit Company.
