Don’t let unruly wires get between you and your music. Pod à porter is the easiest way to wear your music, and it’s now available for the iPod shuffle 4th generation.
Manufactured from tough but flexible, 3D-printed polyamide, Pod à porter is ultralight and has a finely textured surface finish; each ordered product is manufactured just for you. It fits the iPod shuffle 4th generation and its earbuds, leaving all controls accessible.
Available in black, and limited edition colors shown below; check the support/materials section of this website for more information. Pod à porter is great for walking, strolling, commuting and many other activities, but it has not been specifically designed or tested for use during work-outs or sports, so it may not be suitable for your particular type of exercise. Product is shipped in basic Shapeways packaging. Assembly is easy: just run the headphone wire through the product, and attach the Ipod shuffle. Have a look here
