  • Sorry, it's not a mistake. Only the 32GB and 64GB iPod Touches come include the earphones with a Mic. This is becuase the 8GB is not made with the capability to respond to voice commands.

  • Nope, I believe you were given the correct earphones. I bought an 8GB iTouch earlier this year (the 2nd Gen) and were given the basic ear phone. A mate of mine bought the 32GB iTouch (3rd Gen) not too long ago and was given the remote with mic earphone. So it's only the 32GB and above that you get the remote with mic ear phone. All model under 32GB come with the basic ear phones
