Customer Review

on October 4, 2012
All that I can find with the new release is the updated colors, the rest looks the same. This is still 4th generation Apple iPod Shuffle (from wikipedia, this new color refresh is still under 4th generation category).

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:

Shuffle switch
Left - shuffle music
Middle - play in order
Right - turn off

VoiceOver button
Single click - hear current track and artist
Single click and hold - hear playlist menu.
Double click - hear battery status

PROS:
- 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

CONS:
- Expensive (In my opinion, $49 for 2gb is expensive)
- No option for a higher storage capacity

What you get in the box:
- iPod shuffle
- Apple Earphones
- iPod shuffle USB Cable
- Quick Start guide

I'm highly recommending iPod shuffle. But do your research first if you want this kind of mp3 player..
