Griffin Announces First Headphone Adapter for New iPod nano

Nashville, TN - September 9, 2009 - Griffin Technology Inc., the creative leader in ingenious peripherals for iPhone, iPod, Mac and PC, today announced their Headphone Control Adapter with VoiceOver support, the perfect companion for any pair of headphones. With today's unveiling of the new VoiceOver-compatible iPod nano, Headphone Control Adapter is the first such device officially compatible with this new model.

The new Headphone Control Adapter brings freedom of choice to the full range of iPod control features, and works seamlessly with Apple's VoiceOver feature, now available on 5th generation iPod nano and 3rd generation iPod shuffle. It connects the user's favorite set of headphones with any compatible iPod, and with VoiceOver, enables users to hear artist, track and playlist information, spoken in VoiceOver's natural-sounding vocal synthesis. As the name suggests, this adapter also works as an inline remote control, allowing the user to change tracks, play and pause from the touch of a button. This control feature works with any iPod model that supports transport controls through its headphone jack.

The adapter makes a great controller for car stereos with an auxiliary audio input. Connect the Headphone Control Adapter between a compatible iPod and any auxiliary audio cable for track control. Users may also enjoy volume control if the iPod supports VoiceOver.

Griffin's Headphone Control Adapter is VoiceOver-compatible with iPod nano 5th generation and iPod shuffle 3rd generation. It can also be used to control playback with all iPod models that support the transport controls through the headphone jack, including the new iPod touch, iPod nano 4th generation, iPod classic 120GB and new iPod classic 160GB. Above all, Headphone Control Adapter is compatible with any pair of headphones, no matter the style, fit or sound, preferred by the discriminating listener.
