Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood


    "The third-generation Apple iPod Shuffle is as light as a feather and as small as a paper clip, and it includes VoiceOver cues, and improved support for podcasts and audiobooks."


    "You need to operate the Shuffle using a pill-size remote control on your headphones, battery life isn't great, features are few, and the design is a bit boring."


    "The third-generation iPod Shuffle is the next best thing to an invisible MP3 player, but the quirky controls and microscopic design make it a limited recommendation."

Love it! Glad I bought it

Review For: Apple iPod shuffle 3rd Generation (4 GB)

It is small and compact, will clip on my shirt or jacket, and will hold quite a bit of music!
I had purchased the 1 gig ipod and I saw this one. I am so happy I purchased it-I would buy more just to put my whole music library on it. I can just clip it on my jacket, take off on my bike and have music for days!
Highly recommend this item to people who do not want to play with all the buttons-ie. like when you are riding a bike. The remote on the ear buds makes it easy to skip a song when you want without having to look at a screen to see what you are doing. I just put it on shuffle and am on my way.
Would buy again!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Apple iPod shuffle 3rd Generation (4 GB)

When this baby first came out, I didn't like the volume control on the headphone's wire either, because that made it less 'universal,' and I have 7 different high-end headphones laying around my house I would like the ease of plugging in and using at my convenience. After getting some used to, I realized that this IPod had everything else going for it besides that (the highest quality sound/ loudness out of any other generation Shuffle, or small mp3 device).

Yes, it has better sound quality/ loudness than the generation Shuffle's before it, and better sound quality/ loudness than the generation after (where they go back to the people's choice of volume controls on the player). It is also the smallest/ lightest ever designed by apple.

If you can get past the volume control limitation of not being to plug in any headphones, and just keep the ones they give you close to the unit and don't lose them, then you may find that it was ahead of it's time in regards to all else.

We used to need universal headphones because the stock ones they gave with music players could not get loud enough or had poor sound quality. This stock headphones w/ the volume control gets as loud as the ear can take, and the sound quality is outstanding for that group of small mp3 players.

I am a sound enthusiast, and there isn't a need for louder aftermarket headphones than what the unit pushes through it's stock volume-controlled phones.

I used the other Ipod Shuffles that are square, and have volume control (which work for the majority of people), and they are in fact slightly heavier, and bulkier (for runners) due to having volume buttons.

You just can't have everything in life (LOL).

But, for older folks, you definately want to go with the square Ipod Shuffle, because of the ease of volume on the music player (normal standard).

This generation should have caught on (the design and quality of the ipod... other than the volume control issue), but the people shut it down too early.

I've been clipping it on my t-shirt sleeve for over a year, and it has never slipped off. I run fast, and am a big guy.

You take care, and make a good decision. I tried the one they made after it, and the sound quality is not as good as this older generation.

(I've never had any water/ sweat issues stopping the device)

(Oh, and one other bad thing about this generation, that is significant, which I just remembered, is that you cannot plug it into a car stereo and skip forward or backward to another track! This is a great limitation for using it in your vehicle. That means that you have to listen to every song in the row of playlist and not skip to a particular song!! You are basically locked into having to listen to every song in the order that it is in your Itunes.)

The most amazing music player!

I heard a lot about apple and ipod and when I decided to buy mp3 player the only one I could choose was ipod shufle because it is small, lightweight and very convenient for me and everyone who choose high quality of sound and small size. 2gb internal memory is enough for almost 18 hours of music, anyway it is longer then the battery lasts. There is one issue: the headphones aren`t good enough, but when I connected my sennheizer, a`ve lost the ability to control sound volume and switch tracks. It disappoints, but I think I will be able to buy remote control from sellers from china. Anyway it is awesome and I think I won`t ever decide to change it.

iPod Shuffle 3rd Generation (4GB)

Review For: Apple iPod shuffle 3rd Generation (4 GB)

This thing is is awesome! Ive never seen an mp3 so small and with 4GB. It has no buttons or screen, just inline volume and playback controls. Apple states a 4GB Shuffle holds about 1000 songs; mine topped out at just 750. Still it's is amazing when you actually see this thing, smaller than my thumb.
It features Apple Voice Over which allows track titles and playlists to be announced through the speakers and navigated with the controls. The Shuffle is perfect for holding the best of your music collection for any commute or just to jam.

Apple Ipod 4th Gen

The IPod Shuffle 3rd Generation (4 GB) is very easy to use, extremely portable and has excellent sound! Because it's smaller than a cigarette lighter, it's perfect for so many situations where you don't want to carry around a larger mp3 player and have no need for one. It can also hold up to 500 songs (on the 4 GB model) which is almost 48 straight hours of playing time. Small, great sound and so easy I'm betting even our former president could figure it out. That's how simple it is!
