Hi I'm working on a the 5th generation ipod and would be very greatful for any critical analysis. Also what headphones should I model with it?

That looks very good so far. I would probably add more glosh to the top plastic part, and maybe to the screen to. Otherwise it's perfect.

Lose the DOF, it is ruining the image =/.

Looking good so far. I personally quite like the heavy DOF, it's consistent with the macro style composition, and would probably look a bit artificial otherwise (it might not be appropriate for a final render though). The material for the chrome and player body look fine, but I'd work on the screen a bit as it looks like a sticker. I'd place the image below a thick, reflective glass piece to give it a more realistic look.
What headphones you model are up to you, and more importantly, what physical sample you have to hand. I modelled some Sony Fontopias with my Creative mp3 model (here (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=345392)), and they were very easy to do with lathed patches (although not entirely accurate).

Good to hear from another lightwave user, we seem to be a minority in the 3D realm. Thanks for the advice. I'll make the glass material a bit thinker and set back the screen a bit.

Shhhh... Lightwave's our secret ;)
I look forward to seeing what it looks like, it might be that all you need to do is increase the reflectivity or add a bright reflector to make the screen look a little less matte. Looks great so far, anyway. Good luck...

Added the headphones! and used photoshops lens blur filter to add DOF, save quite a bit of time on rendering.
