The one glitch...part of the switches are in the cord...volume and the switch that allows voice over...This tells you what song is playing...the voice over is a nice feature, but you have to download the software from the Apple site.
The main problem is that if the cord ever gets damaged...it has to be a special Apple cord with the same switches inside to replace it. You cannot put speakers on it. It has to be the special Apple cord.
The old ipod shuffle has all the switches on the face of the unit...
This one has 4 GB instead of 2 or 1 GB that makes room for a lot of great tunes, that is why I chose this model over the old model. I wish they had a nearly perfect rating...because it is so much better than Good. I can give it an excellent rating but it isn't perfect yet.
I HATE to give this awesome jewell less than an excellent review! 'cause inside its tiny body...I have a TON of albums...I am all about the music not the video crap...I don't want or need a screen...I don't want or need video.
It is almost too tiny it weighs slightly more than two pairs of earbuds...this is great for jogging with...just clip the unit on your t-shirt sleeve...and it is nearly weightless...It has a shiny chrome metal clip...I am always smuging with my fingerprints and wiping it off... only cause it looks cool in chrome...ahhh the minor price we pay...
The iPod shuffle comes in 2 versions. A 2GB or a 4GB. Each allows adequate space for someone who wants a good amount of songs that they can get to quickly. By holding down the remote, you can switch from playlist to playlist, song to song, album to album, etc. As there is no physical screen, the ipod shuffle has VoiceOver, a feather that tells you which song is playing and who it is by. The VoiceOver is helpful when switching to particular playlists. For $59 or $79 respectively, the ipod shuffle is sure to be a great starter iPod or a great additional ipod to take to the gym or for a commute. Plus, it has a built in clip so you dont even need a case. It comes with the usb cord to sync with your computers and headphones with a built in remote.
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!
I like the small size of the device. Yes, there is an adjustment period to get used to the controls. I bought it for riding the bike and working out, so it fits it's purpose perfectly.
This iPod is small and easy to manage plus it has plenty of memory for favorite tunes. I wish it had a screen but I'm happy with it as is. I decided to buy it because it was a great deal for a 3rd generation iPod with 4GB memory.
The new ipod shuffle is simply amazing! All the controls are located on a small controller near the right earbud. Holds about 1000 songs, I have 400 plus songs & podcast & and I have plenty of room to spare! The new voice over feature is pretty cool! It says the title and performer of the song. I also purchased the apple in the ear headphones. This package is like mini hi-fi system! This thing is small it could double as a tie clip!
At first, I thought that I wouldn't be able to use it. The iPod is so tiny, but I have started putting my music on it and I think it will work out just fine. It is small and so I have to be careful that I make sure that it stays connected to me. I like the features on it. With other iPods you always have to look to see what the song is, this one will tell you when it plays, so that is nice.
Tiny little iPod, about the size of a lipstick only flat and lighter. Since I bought it for walking and running, 4G's is plenty of room for a lot of music or a book or two to run by. It just clips onto your shirt and weighs so little you don't know it's there. All controls are in the headset, which makes it really convenient. Just click to move through a playlist or to turn volume up or down. This is an ideal first mp3 player.
The product is sleek and nice looking. The voice quality is little less in quality as compared to ipod nano. Will try to win more in same category.
This is a handy iPod. Great for motorcycling! The clip helps it stay on well. As always all Apple products I have tried perform well. Nothing beats the sound of the iPod.
