iPod shuffle: The First Music Player that Talks to You
The World's Smallest Music Player
To create the world's smallest music player, we moved the controls from iPod shuffle to the earphone cord. This makes iPod shuffle smaller than ever, and the controls are right where you can reach them. So when you want to play, pause, or skip to the next tune, you don't have to fumble for your iPod shuffle--just follow the cord and press a button.
The First Music Player that Talks to You
VoiceOver will surely be the next big hit on your iPod shuffle. Say you're listening to a song and want to know the title or the artist. Just press a button, and VoiceOver tells you. You can even hear the names of your playlists. And when your battery needs charging, VoiceOver tells you that, too.
The controls are located on the right earphone cord. With command central strategically placed in this more convenient location, you can navigate your music--and activate the VoiceOver feature--without taking your eyes off your run, your ride, or whatever you're doing. iPod shuffle includes these easy-access controls, but you can also use headphones with similar controls from manufacturers like Scosche, Klipsch, V-MODA, and Belkin.
Your Music Library ... to Go
iPod shuffle is now available in both 2 GB and 4 GB capacities. So you have plenty of room to store hours and hours of music--up to 1,000 songs with the 4 GB model.2 That's a load of essentials for your workout or commute. And there's room for multiple playlists and audiobooks, too.
You've probably made multiple playlists in iTunes. One for your commute. One for the gym. One for just chilling out. Now you can sync playlists on your computer with iPod shuffle, and play the perfect mix for your activity or mood. VoiceOver tells you the name of each playlist, so it's easy to switch between them and find the one you want without looking.
Let's Talk Color
The anodized aluminum enclosure makes iPod shuffle sleek and durable. It's even more colorful in gleaming pink, blue, green, black, or silver. And making its debut: the special edition iPod shuffle in polished stainless steel (Talk about rock star treatment). Even the iPod shuffle clip rocks. It attaches securely to your shirt, jacket, workout gear, and backpack, making iPod shuffle the perfect fashion tech-cessory. And yes, there's still room for personalized engraving.
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 20 different languages. So it can tell you song titles and artists in the correct languages.
To Shuffle or Not to Shuffle
The shuffle switch has three positions. 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.

Even with the Apple headphones, the controls don't work very well. Do yourself a favor, and get a different product. I don't know what Apple was thinking.
It worked on 2 weeks worth of training runs before my first half marathon that I ran yesterday. And just as someone else said, at mile 5, the songs started playing erratically. Then I couldn't get the adapter, which has all the controls on it to work. Like any geek, I unplugged the headset and adapter from the Shuffle, thinking it might reset. Instead, it started the play-list all over again from the very beginning. So I got to listen to all the same songs, since the adapter's controls wouldn't work at all. As the previous reviewer said, it seemed either sweat or humidity somehow affected the adapter. I really don't think in this case it was sweat. But the FL humidity was at 80%. So should Fl runners not buy this model? Probably not. Unlike the other reviewer, I did not throw the device or any parts on the ground. Though I laughed when I read that because I had the exact same thought at the time.
My old square Shuffle worked fine and through long hours/runs until one day it just wouldn't take the downloads any more. I'll try to chill and remember the days of Walkmans, but really, this cost good money and you should save yours. My experience Apple iPod shuffle 2 GB Pink (4th Generation) NEWEST MODELwill be a not-so-fond remembrance of an life important event that otherwise was wonderful.
There are no controls except on the headphones. You're kidding me, right? First, the ear buds apple ships with any ipod are terrible - and usually don't even get unwrapped, let alone used. Turns out this little device is completely unusable without them, or some other 3rd party device. What design genius at apple thought this would be acceptable? What arrogant product manager at apple thought this would fly? Does anyone actually buy and use this thing? I took it back for a refund as fast as I could.
I came back home, bought a refurb shuffle like the one I lost for $15 less than the silly, useless new generation device.
I have a hard time thinking Apple is actually taking themselves serious with this product. I seriously feel completely cheated out of the gas I used to drive to my local retailer, (twice), to get and return this thing.
