  1. I think, maybe. first off, no one can run at the speed of sound so that is unrhetorical and second if someone did I'm sure they would hear the iPod because he's running as fast as the sound of it. but that's just a random guess.

  2. Yes he will, because the the ipod is moving along with the jogger, so the sound produced in the headphones will reach the jogger's ears, immaterial of the speed with which he's jogging . But he will not hear sound produced by a stationary sound source.

  3. Oh, okay. Thank you guys!
