You get quite a lot of accessories in the box. A set of stereo headphones from a company called Cresyn – which I’ve never heard of before – that actually sounds a lot better than I had expected. Size wise they compare to those that Samsung supplies with the D500 and the design is also quite similar. Four foam covers come with the headphones as well. For those with small ears these headphones might be on the large side, although they fitted me perfectly.
As I mentioned earlier there is an S-Video cable and a composite video cable with coaxial S/PDIF out. You also get a 3.5mm to phono cable for connecting the i2 to your TV or stereo. A USB 2.0 to mini USB cable is of course supplied but you also get a converter from a standard USB connector to a mini USB connector that is used for the USB host mode. A charger is supplied, while a nylon carry case that can be attached to your belt is also thrown in. The carry case has space for a cable or two as well as a spare battery. Finally we have a carry strap and a polishing cloth.
An infrared remote control comes in the box, which is handy if you plan to use the i2 connected up to a TV. It gives you full control of all the features, which is a good thing as it’s quite hard to use the touch screen interface when the i2 is connected to a TV since the LCD display goes blank. A wired remote control is also available if you plan to use the i2 as your primary music player.
