Goes anywhere. And with anything.
iPod shuffle isn't just portable. It's wearable, too. Clip it to your shirt, jacket, workout gear, backpack, or purse strap, and it stays put--whether you're running an errand or running around the track.
Controls. Right on the button.
Control your music with just a click
It's back--the big, clickable control pad on the front of iPod shuffle. It's 18 percent larger than on previous iPod shuffle models, so it's even easier to see and use the music controls. Press the center button to play and pause. Press the outer buttons to skip forward or back and adjust volume. Click, click, click. It's music to your fingers.
Play it your way
Maybe you're the spontaneous type. Or maybe you prefer a little order. Just flip the shuffle switch to suit your listening style. Flip it to the left, and you'll hear your music in a refreshingly random way. Flip it to the middle, and your songs play in order. Or flip to the right to turn iPod shuffle off.
VoiceOver. It tells you what you want to hear.
Give your songs a voice
Say you're listening to a song and want to know the title or the artist. Just press the new VoiceOver button on top of your iPod shuffle, and it tells you. You can even use VoiceOver to hear the names of playlists and switch between them. And if your battery needs charging, VoiceOver tells you that, too.
It speaks your language
A French love song. A Spanish bolero. An Italian cantata. Your music library has songs from all over the world. That's why VoiceOver speaks 25 different languages. So it can tell you song titles and artists in their native tongues or any language you choose.
Playlists. The perfect mix for every mood.
Sync to your heart's content
iTunes on your Mac or PC makes it easy to load up your iPod shuffle. Just choose the playlists, audiobooks, podcasts, and other audio files you want, then sync.
When one playlist isn't enough
You probably have multiple playlists in iTunes on your computer. One for your commute. One for the gym. One for just relaxing. Sync all those playlists to iPod shuffle, and you can play the perfect mix for whatever mood strikes you. VoiceOver tells you the name of each playlist, so it's easy to switch between them and find the one you want without looking.
Genius comes to iPod shuffle
There's another way to get a good mix of music on iPod shuffle: let Genius do the work. Activate Genius in iTunes on your computer, and it automatically finds songs that sound great together. Then it creates Genius Mixes, which you can easily sync to your iPod shuffle. It's the perfect way to rediscover songs you haven't listened to in, like, forever.
What's in the Box?
2 GB iPod shuffle (orange), Apple earphones, iPod shuffle USB cable (45 mm), quick start guide, and other important product information.

The buttons make it very easy to change music, you don't have to looks through your iphone or ipad to skip song, just feel the buttons and skip the song, it's perfect when I"m on the track or on my motorcycle or any other situations when you don't want to take out the player and look at it to change songs.
With the 128aac apple compression (keeps great sound quality for most people) you can hold roughly around 300 songs.
Voice over function is just an extra feature that makes the shuffle awesome, it reads which song you are currently playing
It's basically a remote that plays music, This is probably going to be my primary music platform
A lot of the negative reviews for this product focus on the difficulty of use. I have to disagree. Personally this is not my first iPod. After several years my MiniApple iPod 4 GB mini M9160LL/A (Silver) OLD MODEL just didn't hold a charge, so it was time to replace it. I opened it and plugged it in to the USB on my computer and it instantly recognized it and "sync"-ed it to my already established iTunes library. Couldn't be easier. I am not tech savvy at all, but this thing worked right out of the box.
Another common complaint is the battery life. Be sure to fully charge it for three to four hours (it's in the manual guys) before you use it. It lasted a five hour flight, which is good enough for me.
2g may seem small, but if you carefully select your music, (its a good ...oh, I don't know eight or ten hours of music, I'm no expert) it should get you where you're going.
The complaints bout the voice-over feature are unfounded, because it gives you the option to turn it off completely. Sure, going from a mini or a nano where you can browse your library this little shuffle may be frustrating, but for fifty bucks, it's a great little rockbox that kept me entertained. By the way, you can always put it on random to shake things up a bit, it doesn't ALWAYS play the songs in the exact order.
I should probably note that a few times when shoving it into my pocket I hit the pause button, but once I figured out what I was doing, it was no real problem.Read more ›
- The size. Even smaller and lighter than the 2nd gen. This thing is great for working out as you can just clip it on your shirt or shorts and not even notice. Much better than having to strap something around your arm (especially if you are in the gym doing bicep curls)
- The memory. It fits enough music to keep me entertained until it is time to charge it again and I can switch songs up
- The ease of use. Don't like the song? Hit forward. Like it a lot? Hit the back. Too loud our quiet? There's buttons for that too! I have an ipod touch which is great in it's own way, but when I am running I don't want to sit there looking at the screen fumbling around.
- Playlists. My old 2nd gen didn't have this, and I really like it. I can have two different playlists with different genres and switch back and forth depending on my mood by hitting the button on the top.
- The shuffle. I "complained" about this in my review of the 2nd gen, but for some reason these things seem to pick some songs way more often than others. I just got back from a run and must have fast forwarded through a couple different songs 3-4 times while others never seemed to come up. Not a deal breaker, but kind of annoying.
- The voice-over. Man that thing is annoying, I don't need a computerized voice to tell me what song is coming up. It's my music and I put it on there, so I'm usually able to figure out what the song is in a second by myself.Read more ›
