1.0 out of 5 stars Lack of protection kills this thing, March 6, 2011
This review is from: Apple iPod shuffle 2 GB Silver (4th Generation) (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
I highly enjoyed the 2nd Generation Shuffle, I had only one major problem with it in all the time I owned it.

I was psyched when the 4th Generation Shuffle came out, I enjoyed the clip on design and bought one as soon as I could to replace my old 2nd Gen Shuffle. The thing worked fine until about 2 months after I bought it. I had it replaced by apple where THAT one stopped being responsive after approximately a month. I promptly went out and bought another one to have a backup in case the first one broke. One of the two Ipods broke and was replaced. As of today both IPODs are not working and are going to have to be replaced.

Apparently the fact that when I work out, I tend to break a heavy sweat has killed these things faster then the Ebola virus. Apple needs to either have these things more resistant to sweat or manufacture a case that can protect them better. I'm not trying to deep sea dive, but the fact that they can't stand up to the workouts that I do is rather telling of the overall product.

I think a lot of shuffles out there have died from exposure to sweat (which is dumb b/c they were designed for active people). There's a waterproof shuffle that this other company makes that works really well though. Totally sweat proof!
