I love having an ipod shuffle. At least the older versions. They're cheap, small and convenient. This new one however, requires that you have the headphones to operate it. I like to play my ipod through my speakers in my car, and though an auxiliary channel on my stereo at home. These new ipods require you to have the headphones that comes with it to fully operate them. There is an adapter which was 12 dollars at the store. I wouldn't pay that much for it. There's a new voice over feature but it is unnecessary. I know what songs are playing when I hear them. I really think apple just got it wrong this time.
And that it's true...I can't operate, there is no manual to how to operate the Apple iPod shuffle Second Gen. Purple (1 GB, MB233LL/A) MP3 Player. Hopefully, my sister can operate it because I gave to her as Christmas gift...
I'm using this as a replacement to my 30BG Apple iPod Classic, which had approx 350 CDs loaded on it. This NOT a reflection on the buyer, this is NOT a fault of theirs ... and I KNOW it's selecting from MY iTunes library, but this thing seems to have a knack for randomly selecting the crap out of my library! It's just weird how it happens every time. Luckily it holds approx 165-170 tunes and I can't last long enough on a bike ride to exhaust that many tunes ... but I skip through a LOT of selections. Maybe you'll have better (random) luck.
This is neither here nor there, but it's bizarre how TEENY it is -- it just about disappears at the end of the headphone cord!
This is a good little unit, but the instructions that came with it are very vague and you can't use mp3 or wma files on this device, they will down load but won't play. Also you have to down load and use the itunes media system. overall it is a good unit but it takes a lot to get it going. It is nice though that you can just plug it in to any USB port on a computer and the unit will charge.
Nice little MP3 player .. very simple to load and use. Holds about 120 songs with ease and contains all you need to operate. Some issues might be the size of storage .. 1GB is pretty small and most of us want more. Also, no pictures or vidios can be stored as there is no screen.
Good product to buy used. It worked well for my daughter's first Ipod. The features are easy to understand and it is very user friendly.
I purchased the ipod shuffle recently, having used one before I knew this is what I was looking for. It's size makes it very easy to just slip in your pocket. It doesn't have a lot of features, but if you're just looking for something portable to play your music on, it does the trick.
I LOVE this product, but my specific iPod shuffle's power switch takes EFFORT to turn it on and off, which concerns me as to how long it will last. I have several others and they're fantastic. This specific one, my least favorite because of it's condition.
Earbuds are not an Apple product!!! But all else is good to go. They listing said factory refurb. but did not mention that the accessories would be fake!!!!
This item was purchased as a gift so I cannot give a review. However, the product looks good and I'm sure is of very good quality. There should be an option where a review can be declined.
