I'm just going to go ahead and pretend that's my Zune on the shirt, OK?

...wait, it'd have to be red for that.

Shoot.

*paints Zune black*

All better!

Ah yes, here we are. After traveling through the remote jungles of the Brazilian Amazon for what has seemed like months in search of the rumored iPod Touch (Applecius touchucicus), we have stumbled upon what seems to be an even more distant relative. Could this be the ever-famed iPod Classic (Applecius classicucicus)? We will have to analyze these photos further after arriving back in Dublin.

Its a nice design, but I couldn't wear it. Design is too low; I have to tuck my shirts in as I wear tools on my belt. If I wore this shirt it would look more like green farts rising from my britches. Plus, its black. I already have a closet full of black Woot T's. Pass.

I don't know what's sadder: the fact I see a ipod on this beautiful shirt, or the fact that apple has brain washed to the point of only seeing an ipod on this shirt

Not getting this purely because of the iPod. It doesn't look like anything other than an iPod.
Otherwise a nice design.

I have to agree with a previous poster that this seems less about music than electronics. I would never have guessed the derby from looking at the picture.

That said, it is a great design. Had it been on another colored shirt, I wouldn't have hesitated for an instant.

I also want to share with you the conversation I envisioned while reading previous posts:

[I walk by wearing this shirt]
Awed Bystander 1: Man did you see his shirt?
Awed Bystander 2: Yeah. What kind of mp3 player was that?
Awed Bystander 1: Dunno. Looked like an iPod or a sansa, maybe.
Awed Bystander 2: Well he should have been more specific about which products he endorses. How does he expect us to bask in the glory of emulating his every radical move?
Awed Bystander 1: Let's just go buy whatever pathetic model [electronics store] is desperate to get rid of.

So next time, I expect more clarity about brands and, if possible, serial numbers. And more purdy plants.

Haven't been around shirt.woot for very long, but this is the first shirt over the past month or two that I have even considered buying, let alone bought.

I'm not normally very fond of the material woot tends to put up, but I've been checking every night just in case; looks like it paid off.



And who looks at someone listening to an iPod and thinks to themselves "Electronics!"...?
iPod, or even the generic term mp3 player, is all but synonymous with music.

Very cool, but with the ipod it kind of feels like an advert to me. I'd probably buy this without the mp3 player.

sekiyoku wrote:Wow, that took a very long time. Anyway, as I said on the main thread, I included the mp3 player because I wanted the headphones to be plugged into something, and because I wanted to show a contrast between technology and nature. It doesn't have to be an ipod if you don't want it to be, since the cord and headphones are not white. ;) I drew it like this because this is what a lot of mp3 players (ipod, zune, sansa) look like nowadays. It was never my intention to support a specific product.

Anyway, thanks for your votes and support.



My sisters ipod and headphones are black. And its still an ipod. It's very obvious it's an ipod. Draw a rose in black, and it's still a rose.

I like the green colors, honestly, but it really doesn't scream out "music" to me in a way that doesn't cross over into a materialistic view. Would'a still been at least better without the product placement.

I originally said I would buy this after seeing the design initially. Even though it is a very lovely design and a far cry better than your usual work, I've decided not to buy it because of the iPod. Grats on the printing though.

No it isn't.

Most music suuucks. It's as bad as watching TV but without even the picture.

Nothing great about the shirt. Grats anyways.

Much better than a shirt with a dumb slogan or 1-liner from the unfunny rocket scientist blue-collar dorks.

Hmm, I guess I like this shirt now when I compare it.

The trademark headphones are white though. The black headphones would be from a non-Apple vendor, I think. Then again, I don't keep up with Apple.

What's with everyone thinking it's an Ipod? All mp3 players with screens have that general shape. It could be a Zune, Zen, Sansa, Ipod, etc. Great Design, I ordered one right away.

The art is pretty, don't get me wrong. Seriously, good job on colors and design. However!!! I'm so damned sick of shirts that only Dragonball Z fans and Gadzooks managers would ever wear.

Does the design start at the bottom of the shirt, like the rabbit reaching for the balloon shirt? I don't ever wear that one because the picture always gets crumped up at the bottom and you can't see it.

Got to be sansa iPods have white buds. Why would you wear big headphones like that with an iPod. You would dock it , and blast it so you piss off the neighbors with your collection of floyd tunes. Yep!

When I look at this shirt, I see the calming effect that music has on the human soul, as well as the way it can revitalize the mind and body.

Absolutely love it.

Uhh, what? Are you insane? How is this shirt at all a "geek" shirt? This is a beautiful piece of artwork that can speak to a wide range of people, and it is probably the least "geeky" shirt Woot has had all week. What does this design have to do with Dragonball Z, anyway?

??? The size of headphone speakers does not allow even reasonable replication of dynamics nor frequency response. You'd need a 7-8 inch low freq driver to achieve such (go any bigger than that and you're going to distort or require a third driver which has obvious consequences adding another crossover). In addition, the overwhelming majority of music is recorded and mixed with the intention of being played back to on a set of speakers where the sound of each speaker can be combined in the air, something not possible with headphones.

So yeah, headphones are *all* lousy in terms of sound quality. Some are just less lousy. "Audiophile headphone" is an oxymoron. The selling point of headphones is convenience. And you'll also being getting a very warped version of the artists' intent.
