4GB - Super small - Get the Scosche adapter to bypass the wire controls.
The selling point was that the 3rd gen shuffle has 4GB of storage; from the best of my knowledge, Apple does not and have not made a shuffle with 4GB anymore. The main complaint is that all the controls are on the earphone wire, but "Scosche" sells an adapter for the 3rd gen shuffle to bypass that inconvenience, you can then use any earphones; while having the actual controls on the shuffle. You would need this adapter to use the 3rd gen shuffle with any external speaker, any regular set of earphones or in a car. The adapter is approximately $20 and well worth it. 4GB is the selling point and the Scosche adapter corrects the common complaint with all the controls on the wire. $40 for the shuffle + $20 for the adapter. By far the smartest and most cost effective Ipod shuffle configuration to purchase.Read full review

Excellent device, have purchased 4 total!
Great Little iPOD to use for listening to music while at the gym, running, riding a bike, tennis, or just about anything that will keep it out of the water. I've even taken mine into the steam room at the gym. Small, solid, long battery life, very easy to use. Only con would be either special earphone with volume control or a special adapter must be used. Not really a problem as they are readily available inexpensively.
Very good little music machine.

GETTING PAST THE VOLUME CONTROL, I find it AHEAD OF IT's TIME in all else
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.)Read full review

The 3rd Generation (4 GB) iPod Shuffle is a timeless alien artifact
This is a 1,000 songs in a seamless capsule. I always thought this shuffle was the best iPod for exercise. I just bought another one as new/old stock, unopened. The controls on the tiny bar on the headset is still one of the great, subtle ergonomic thrills, allowing you to adjust the volume or advance the song. Mine is silver; when I hold it in my hand, it's like a gift from an advanced alien culture, something found in an old coat of Captain Kirk's. Music is the best way to communicate on Earth and everywhere else. This is for a space traveler who wants a weightless iPod made to become nearly invisible, a simple digital sound robot with no touch screen or glass to worry about. This is an elegant piece of genius. The engraved, white Apple logo on the steel clip give me chills now that Steve Jobs is gone. I carry the pride of having been loyal to Apple and Mac since the beginning. The 3rd Generation iPod Shuffle found a little place in my heart, like R2D2. A thousand songs of my choosing in a tiny, airtight fingertip, stored on a solid state hard drive with no moving parts that looks like GORT from The Day the Earth Stood Still laid it on you. I'm going to keep buying these until they run out. 2 GB isn't enough: 4 is just right.Read full review

high sound volume, very small design, long battery life, little uncomfortable to transfer music with itunes-takes longer then just copy/paste, prefer in ear buds for headphones, had to buy another set.
