Don't see how this can really harm your iPod.
In terms of sound, I think its really good for what it is. I was comparing it to my cd (switching back and foruth between the 2) and the sound is not that much better...it more so depends on the song...but than again, this thing is $12 lol.
I don't know, I'm personally happy with it. It holds my iPhone, I have a good view of it (can use it for GPS), I have easy accessabiliy to it (to change songs), and the sound quality is comparable
to cds (but not better
I would've bought the AUX cable but $60 (shipped from the states) or $120 (bought locally) is not worth it. I'd rather spend the extra money on the USA Spec steve.325i mentioned. Thanks for the link there btw, seems like a really good product. I might upgrade it to that in the summer, but for now I'm happy with this little $12 thing
