The iPod catches some flack for not offering much in the way of EQ and sound-enhancement features. Sure, Apple's standard list of iPod EQ presets are a nice gesture, but they won't perform any miracles on you iPod's sound (especially if you're still hanging onto those stock earbuds).

The SRS iWOW adapter seeks to solve the problem by catching the audio between your iPod and your earbuds and injecting it with some extra oomph. Personally, I wasn't bowled over with the results (especially for the $99 MSRP), but to see if the SRS iWOW is right for you, check out our full write-up and video over at CNET Reviews.
