Ditch I river and Buy Ipod Photo 60gb?

I have had my iriver h340 mp3 player since last summer. However i am sorely tempted by the ipod photo 60gb mp3 player. Had a play with one today and i was so very nearly unleashing my credit card !!!!
I am not sure if i would be making the right decision to dump i river and join the ipod revolution. It seems to me there is alot more accessories and support for the ipod than there is for the iriver. So can anyone advise me as to whether i should buy the ipod photo 60gb or not?

Oh another question:

I have heard lots of bad comments on this board about the earphones that u get with iPods.

Are they really that bad?
And is there any that people would recommend?

Thanks again!

I use a pair of Shure's noise-isolating earphones. Can't remember which model but they cost something like sixty quid. Worth it, IMO. And they're black, so it doesn't look as though you've got several hundred quid's worth of desirable Apple kit ripe for the, er, picking. Apple earbuds are rubbish for me as my ears are too small to tuck them comfortably in my ears.

Let me know how it works with the D70 please. I'm thinking of ordering an iPod this week partly for use with my D70.

I use the Shure e2c earphones, too. They take some getting used to as they really go a long way into your ear canal, but the sound quality is well worth it. The next model up comes in white if you still want to advertise the fact you're Appled up, but they retail over here for about £120! Get them on ebay much cheaper. e.g.
