    My iPod earphones (I use them with my classic) have started buzzing so I was gonna get some more. They are £19 on the Apple store. I thought, fuck that.

    So then I was browsing through the refurb bit and came across a 1GB new style shuffle in green for £25 :hsd:

    £6 shuffle ftw.

    Highlight of my day :o

    £10 get's you no where :rofl:

    True that they aren't good. I thought about getting some better ones. But they suffice for walking to lectures, sitting on the train/bus or excercising. I have better headphones for when I really want good sound.

    I wouldn't have bought just the earphones. Only did it because I got the shuffle too.

    Wow my estimated ship date for this is June 12th and estimated delivery is the 16th :eek3:

    Do refurbs usually take that long? :ugh:
