Just thinking someone in my ear saying run now at 'X' speed or for 'X' amount of time might be the way forward for me.
I've never used audio except to zone out on long runs and I stopped doing even that years ago. But there is something to be said for having a drill sergeant. Would it be possible for you to go along to a local club's intervals night? There are lots of people there who will happily tell you when to start and stop.
On the treadmill, which I admit to having used a lot recently for recovery, I tend to program in the intervals so I can't avoid doing them.
Personally I think having people tell you is more fun and more motivating. They can also understand when you're not on your best form, and make allowances. When you've heard your MP3 a few times, it might get boring! And then it's easy to 'forget' your ipod.
