This product is small, actually very small. I know you can use your iPhones or Androids and even get more storage space than this, but shuffle has a different target of users, mostly for active and on the go users. This is perfect for exercising, running, walking, etc. Just clip it to your shirt and your ready to go.
If your the type of user who wants to put all your mp3s to your mp3 player, then you might want to find a different player thas has larger capacity , as this one has only 2gb of space. You should still be able to put hundreds of songs here especially if your songs bitrate compression is not very high.
Some of the basic functionalities:
Left - shuffle music
Middle - play in order
Right - turn off
Single click - hear current track and artist
Single click and hold - hear playlist menu.
Double click - hear battery status
- Tiny (this can also be a con, in a way like since it's tiny, it's also easy to lose or misplace)
- 15hr play time
- Colors refreshed for the 2012 release model
- Physical buttons
- High quality anodized aluminum
- Expensive (In my opinion, $49 for 2gb is expensive)
- No option for a higher storage capacity
What you get in the box:
- iPod shuffle

I'm highly recommending iPod shuffle. But do your research first if you want this kind of mp3 player..
Update: May 28, 2014. After a year and a half roughly I've managed to cause damage to the iPod shuffle. I was running and got caught in a serious downpour 4 miles from home. The shuffle was clipped to the top of my shorts with a shirt over it, but the shirt was completely drenched and therefore the shuffle got exposed to a fair amount of water. It will still turn on, but the Pause/play button is now stuck on. When you press that button for 3 seconds, the buttons lock. So, I can turn on the shuffle, but after three seconds the buttons no longer function. I can manipulate volume with a button on my earbuds. I am going to buy another shuffle (unless someone on here has an idea of how to fix mine....) and I'm not going to change my rating on the shuffle. I still think it is a fantastic little piece of equipment. I exposed it to a very extreme circumstances. (Short of jumping in a pool with it I probably couldn't have gotten it wetter.) I can't blame the company or the design for what happened and in my opinion the fact that I have no qualms in purchasing another tells the story. Thanks again for taking the time to read my review.
Thee older models deserved five stars but this one has several annoyances. (Fortunately, I skipped the model with on-cord controls only.)
This latest version is smaller with a larger control button and now it is so easy to hit the control button and change the track when using the clip because there isn't enough room for a thumb or finger.
The new on-off switch with the integrated shuffle function makes it difficult to turn the shuffle on and off without putting it into shuffle mode rather than sequential mode unless you actually looking at the switch.
As far as improvements, the simplified charging/synching cable is much easier to use and transport than the old one with the little dock.
Of course, I could buy a different brand of MP3 player such as a Sansa Clip and get more storage for the same price but the reliability of these has been excellent and they are so tiny and lightweight that I think they are worth it.
Everything's OK but the sound quality sucks. I used to have Ipod classic (audio quality was never great, but not that bad either)
and was expecting at least something similar, but the sound quality is just horrible. Even crappy Chinese mp3 players (like $5 ones with FX)
have better audio than this. Seriously, I use Aurvana air earphones so I can tell the quality pretty accurately. THIS SHUFFLE has nothing
but its cool look. I would still give 4 stars cuz the design is super dope and cool.
