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.

Top Customer Reviews
As was noted by several other reviewers, the headphones are way too poor, and if a trace of sweat gets into the control box, the whole iPod is toast. Even assuming you don't use it for exercise, trying to remember whether to double or triple click the teeny tiny little control in a given direct to either go forward, backwards, increase or decrease volume is beyond annoying, and it's not something that's particularly easy to concentrate on while you are kicking out a 10K a day as I am (not exaggerating, as I am a distance runner). Also, because it is really too small for practicality, just turning the thing off and on was a challenge, not to mention the way it is designed made it hard to clip onto your clothing, and given that the controls are on the headset instead of the box, you can find yourself rather confused on how to keep a steady rhythm in using it while exercising(do I flick the little button 5 times...oh wait I flicked it 6, now it's going backwards...now the volume button doesn't work...uggg!).
I had mine for only 2 days before the iPod started just saying "all songs" over and over again randomly, the volume would increase and decrease without warming, and the songs would change randomly.Read more ›
Apple got greedy and decided to make a product that will force you to buy special overpriced headphones. They dont even have those headphones available yet, and in the mean time, what you have is a waste of money and time.
Just look at Ebay for 2nd Generation Ipods and you will see--- THEY SELL FOR TWICE THE PRICE OF THE NEW DESIGN.
Oh Apple, how you disappoint me. I am the most loyal of loyal customers, but the new shuffle is horrible.

Skip this generation model (Gen 3) of Apple iPod Shuffle and go for Gen 4 (perhaps even Gen 2, seriously, that former gen model is better than this one).
