Belkin announces Headphone Adapter for iPod shuffle

Belkin announced today a brand new Headphone Adapter for the third-generation iPod shuffle that will make using more advanced types of headphones with the player possible for the first time.

The Headphone Adapter is really simple and makes it so you can use any headphone or earbud pair that requires a 3.5mm headphone jack. You can even use VoiceOver through this add-on.

This new adapter will be available sometime this week in the U.S. and in August for Europe, Australia and Asia. Expected cost is about $20, making it definitely cheap enough to be worth the investment.
