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.

Easy-Access Controls
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.

Multiple Playlists
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.

Multiple Languages
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.

What's in the Box
Apple iPod shuffle 2 GB Green (4th Generation), Earphones with Remote, iPod shuffle USB Cable (1.8 inches/45 mm), Quick Start guide

I am not sure who thought it was a wise decision to build this model the way it is, but it is by far and away the most terrible electronic product I have ever owned and I would expect so much better from Apple. I have owned both a 2nd and 3rd generation Shuffle and had each of them for 3-5 years without issues. So when my last one finally died, I went out to get a new one only to discover that only the new 4th generation of shuffles was available.

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.

If you use the shuffle to work out, this is the most ill-conceived piece of junk ever. The earbud headphones suck for running, and you cant use 3rd party headphones. The controls are not intuitive, are hard to reach, and do not work if they get damp at all.

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.

I'm not sure why they did what they did to the shuffle, but it all sucks. If you are a runner, or workout, listen up. Because the controls are near your neck, you can't use the tightening thing that helps keep your ear phones in your ears when you run. It is adjustable, but keeps falling apart/off, which means the ear pieces keep falling out of my ears. In addition, the shape of the shuffle is horrible. The generation before this was much better. The clip is a lot stiffer and is hard to clip onto regular workout tights/pants--> it also bothers me a lot more than the last shuffle. I only got this because I dumbly put my last shuffle through the wash (didn't empty my pockets). I guess it serves me right. But if I were you, I'd wait until Apple gets the shuffle right again. This is just horrible. I felt so strongly about this, I wrote a review- one of the few I've written in my life.

This ipod stinks. When you press & hold the middle button to hear the name of the song, it just says "all songs." Every time I recharge the battery, it always starts playing songs from the beginning of the list. It doesn't start from where you stop the song, like on a cassette tape. I can't fast forward to the next song, or rewind to the previous song. And the battery never last long enough to play half the list. So I can't play all of the songs on one charge.

I was a bit disappointed to find that Apple changed the earbud control standards from this generation to the newest generation of iPods, which means that the pause/play button on the new earpods will work but the volume up/down buttons won't, which basically neuters this iPod if you are using newer headphones and don't have a Belkin adapter. Otherwise, stylistically I think it is superior to every other iPod. I bought a 4th generation iPod because the used 3rd gen I got has a bad battery that doesn't hold much charge. I can tell you from experience that this iPod's clip is the better clip of the two. And even if you also get a broken 3rd generation iPod Shuffle, it still makes a very neat fashion accessory :)

I Got It On Time And Plugged Into iTunes. Did A Full Restore And It Was Like It Was Brand New. Played It All Night And Still Had 75% Battery Left.!! Does Exactly What's Intended, Plays Music And Works Like A Charm.

This is an awful MP3 player. The only reason I got it was that it fit in the H20audio Interval. For that reason it is tolerable since it is great to have audio while swimming. But the lack of control over the shuffle's operation is frustrating. It is very difficult to get the player to play media in different categories e.g. Music and Podcasts or iTunesU or Playlists. If you do not need the form factor for the H20audio headphones there are much better MP3 products to buy over the Shuffle.
