Product Description

Product Description

Using either witchcraft, fairy dust or highly gifted engineers (we're not sure which), Apple has created an iPod Shuffle of an almost impossibly small size. Only slightly bigger than a U.S. quarter, this teensy-weensy device packs 2GB of Storage space. Enough for up to 480 of your favorite songs! Apple also attached a clip to the back of the Shuffle, so you can wear it anywhere for skip-free Music playback. Perfect for working out or just walking down the street. Unit Dimensions - 1.62 x 1.07 x 0.41 (including clip) Unit Weight - 0.55 oz. Color - Green

Amazon.com

Amazon.com Product Description The 2 GB iPod shuffle lets you wear up to 500 songs on your sleeve. Or your lapel. Or your belt. And now it's available in your choice of remixed colors. Clip on iPod shuffle and wear it as a badge of musical devotion.

Controls
iPod shuffle pays respect to its bigger siblings with a circular control pad that puts the "go" in ergonomic. Click the center button to play and pause. Click the outer buttons to move back, skip forward, and adjust volume.



Pop the iPod shuffle into the included dock and sync with iTunes. View iPod shuffle dimensions.


The shuffle switch lets you mix up the iPod contents, or play playlists in the order you want. View larger.
Clip
Thanks to a built-in clip, iPod shuffle goes with anything. Clip it to your sleeve, lapel, coin pocket. No matter where you wear it, iPod shuffle speaks volumes about your style.

Shuffle switch
Embrace your inner rebel: Flip the shuffle switch to mix up iPod shuffle's contents. Flip it again to play your handpicked playlists and albums in the order you synced them from iTunes.

Battery indicator
Green means go, amber means you're low, and red means you've almost hit zero. But with up to 12 hours of battery life, the iPod shuffle may keep rocking even longer than you do.

Headphone jack
The headphone jack does double-duty as a dock connector. Flip iPod shuffle upside-down and drop it into the included dock. Connect the dock to your Mac or PC for a quick sync and charge. Away from your computer? Charge on the go with the optional Apple USB power adapter.

I've long thought about buying an iPod, but the price always held me back. When Apple recently lowered the price of the shuffle, I jumped. But I did spend a little extra and buy the 2 GB model. I mean, for $20 more, who wouldn't?

This model actually allows you to input 1.89 Gigs of music. Why the difference? Because the iPod needs some space for the software. Depending on the size of the songs, that translates to roughly 500 songs. The first time around, I got 498 songs on it, and I had three 11 minutes song included. I just reloaded and got 528 songs on. I did use a different computer (although it had to erase everything because it only connects with one computer at a time), but it looked like it grabbed shorter songs this time.

The iPod comes with everything you need to get started. You've got the device itself, the ear bud headphones, and the docking device. You use this device to connect your iPod to your computer. While connected, you can load songs from iTunes and charge the device.

And that's one of the weaknesses of the device (and Apple in general). You can only load songs from their music player. Fortunately, anyone can download iTunes from Apple for free, so that isn't an issue. But it would be nice if it worked with other programs. Additionally, you must plug it into a computer to charge it.

Loading songs is pretty straight forward. You can either create a play list for it to load or have it load up random songs.

The device is small and lightweight. But what I love is the build in clip that allows you to attach it to any article of clothing. I bought it mainly to use while running or working out. It's perfect for that. Just clip it and forget about it.

What's there to say? It's an Apple iPod and works just fine. Price was right and it arrived almost immediately although I used the "free" shipping option.

I decided to purchase the "old style", ipod shuffle green model before there no longer available. If you want a nice compact with less frills, this one will do the job. I think the older shuffle modle looks best and is very easy to clip to your shirt without any added weight or if you decide, you could just attach and wear it on a iPod shuffle arm band. The music is easy to download from iTunes as I already have the iPhone, 3GS model but I dont't care to take it with me and have a big iPhone around my arm or in my pocket when going to the gym. This shuffle modle also has a water proof case which you can attach to your swim goggles to swim with. What a great Idea! You have got to get one! This older model is still the best - more compact and has better looks. I hope Apple doesn't decide to get rid of it altogether and just stay with the newer 3rd, 4th generation version. If it looks better and is more compact why get rid of it? I love mine - Buy one before there gone!

I have one of these in purple, and I just have to say that it's a nice little ipod, if you are on a budget this is a perfect fit for you or your child. I also have a nano, so of course I miss the screen in this one, but I basically got it to play some tunes as I jog or clean the house through my idog speaker, so I wasn't always burning the battery of my nano. If you want the screen or video capability, don't buy this one, because it doesn't have those features, and you will be dissapointed, but as far as joggers and workout related, it's PERFECT for that type of job!

I really like the shuffle. I had a Nano. When trying to change the song while running, changing the volume was difficult. It tended to FF or REW easily. Maybe if I wasn't concentrating so hard on just breathing!!! I gave it to my husband. The shuffle clicks vol. UP and DOWN. I like being able to clip it to my shirt or sportsbra and not having a band on my arm. I set my Nano on the treadmill and now it skips. I was told by a friend that when she asked apple about the same problem it messes up the hard drive from being jarred like that.

What is there to say about the iPod shuffle that hasn't already been said in the other 300+ reviews?

So here are the five things *I* like best about it:

It's small and lightweight and goes right into my shirt pocket.
It's inexpensive so if i lose or break it or if it is stolen no big deal.
I can use the controls without looking at it.
It holds just the right amount of music.
Sand doesn't mess it up at the beach.
The charge lasts a long time.

Okay, so that's six.

Anyway, I've had my shuffle for 2 1/2 years and I still love it.

The ipod shuffle is great, small, compact and it fits a lot of music on there (I got the 2G) but the earbuds are not great. I had an older ipod shuffle (that I lost, it's tiny size a distinct negative at that point) and the earbuds that came with that were much clearer.
The ones that came with the 2G shuffle are somewhat tinny and muffled. Will probably go with another brand of ear buds to get better sound quality.

I ordered it from Robert Hines, paid $55.99 and he never sent it. I contacted him and got no response, so have contacted Amazon. If my credit card hasn't been credited by Dec. 15th, I'll write to the credit card company and contest the charges. What a hastle. Avoid doing ANY business with Robert Hines on Amazon.com. It can't be worth it!
