The iPod touch EarPods don’t come with the inline remote/mic. That’s a bummer. The mic isn’t a big deal to us since it’s not an iPhone. Do remember that the device does have a built-in mic. However, the remote control is very nifty.
It’s nice to have some of those functions readily-available without having to reach into your pocket and grab your iPod.
Well, at least you know now, and you won’t be surprised if you buy an iPod touch.
