The iPod Touch is a portable media player and pocket computer marketed and sold by Apple. The iPod Touch features built-in exterior speakers that allow you to play media and sounds directly from your iPod Touch without using headphones or external speakers. It is also possible to adjust the volume of the sound that will play through the iPod's exterior speakers and to completely turn off the speakers so that no sound will play through the iPod Touch's built-in exterior speakers.
