Bruddy, LLC has started shipping the ShuffleMate, an iPod shuffle case that offers sturdy protection and with clips and wire management.
Announced in February, the ShuffleMate is a constructed from clear, polycarbonate plastic, keeping the shuffleis white body visible.
"The iPod shuffle is a spectacular product, but all those cords make for a lot of clutter", said Matthew Broms, creator of the ShuffleMate. "With the ShuffleMate, I can attach my iPod Shuffle anywhere: on my shirt collar, belt or pant pocket, shirt lapel, even a baseball cap or bike helmet. With the wire cleanly tucked away, say good-bye to all that ispaghettii and forget you?re even wearing an iPod!"
The ShuffleMater sells for $16.95 and includes an industry standard "bull-dog" clip. For a limited time, Bruddy is offering a $3 per unit discount on multiple orders. The ShuffleMate can be ordered direct from Bruddy online and will be in select retail and on-line stores in April.
Bruddy said it is currently developing several more products tailored for use with the ShuffleMate, beginning with an inexpensive armband (under $10). More details will be released in the near future.
