Apple iPod shuffle 1GB silver
It’s tiny, sturdy and affordable, and it sounds great. You’d be hard-pressed to find anything that comes close.

Manufacturer's Description

It’s tiny, sturdy and affordable, and it sounds great. You’d be hard-pressed to find anything that comes close.

Manufacturer's Description
The world’s smallest digital music player, the 1GB iPod shuffle lets you wear up to 240 songs(1) on your sleeve. Or your lapel. Or your belt. Clip on iPod shuffle and wear it as a badge of musical devotion.

One size fits all

You know what they say about good things and small packages. But when something 1.62 inches long and about half an ounce holds up to 240 songs, "good" and "small" don’t quite cut it. Especially when you can listen to your music for up to 12 continuous hours.(2) In fact, iPod shuffle just may be the biggest thing in small.

Ready to wear

Clip it to your coin pocket. Clip it to your bag. No matter where you clip your skip-free iPod shuffle, you’ll have instant access to music. And iPod shuffle’s anodized aluminum enclosure goes with absolutely everything. Put it on, turn it up, and turn some heads.



Sync to fit

The first step to wearing 240 songs on your iPod shuffle is downloading iTunes — free. Then you can download songs from the iTunes Store or import music from your CDs. When it’s time to sync, plug the included dock into your Mac or PC’s USB port and transfer your music from iTunes just by docking iPod shuffle.

Remix and match

Got more than 240 songs in your iTunes library? No problem. Let iTunes autofill your iPod shuffle and get a new musical experience every time. Pop follows jazz. Rock follows rap. iPod shuffle loves to improvise. Take the Shuffle switch, for instance. Even if you’ve synced a particular playlist, you can shuffle songs with a flick.


1. 1GB = 1 billion bytes; actual formatted capacity less. Song capacity is based on 4 minutes per song and 128-Kbps AAC encoding; actual capacity varies by content.
2. Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles. Battery life and number of charge cycles vary by use and settings. See for more information.

"Why on earth do I need an iPOD?", I used to think, "It's not as if I listen to a lot of music."

Then last Christmas my sister bought an iPOD shuffle for me from Canada. What a revelation.

This is a great device for the gym: it's tiny, light and easy to wear. I use it to listen to radio podcasts. It doesn't have a hard disk like an iPOD, so the shuffle doesn't have any moving parts. The upshot of this is it's extremely reliable (so I'm told). I've not found it fragile, but I am quite careful with it, having only dropped it once. Yes, it is difficult to shuffle through each recording.

Recommended, especially for the gym and for recordings you don't want to permanently leave on the iPOD.

PS Have seen reviews with poor ratings of this product since I originally posted this. A few more comments.
I would emphasise that it's very difficult to navigate your way around tracks - you really need to use this as a "I play everything in sequence" machine (which is why it's good for listen once and delete).
Comments around style - well, this is all about size. This thing is tiny and light - that's the major advantage.
Durability - dropped it lots of times now. No problems. Have even bent the sturdy bulldog clip - slight problem in that it struggles to fit into docking port. My big belly bent it when I bent over...

2 points haven't been made -
the battery life is good (even when I've left it on by mistake) and it's never run out
you can't delete tracks from the machine - you need to do this from the computer.

At the time of writing this review there are 68 others already on here, but I thought I would tell you of my own experience with the ipod shuffle.

I go the gym and used to have a MP3 player - just a basic "memory stick" type that I plugged into my computer to recharge and I could drag & drop songs onto. Unfortunately it died so it was time to look for a new one. Now I was undecided whether to buy a basic model by a less well known company, or go for a leading name. It seems to me that if you're prepared to go for a relatively unknown manufacturer you can get a basic mp3 player for half the price with twice the memory, but eventually after much deliberation I plumped for the apple ipod shuffle, swayed by a combination of the reputation of apple & (hopefully) a better build quality.

I have had it just over a week now and I think I have made the right decision.

Yes, there is no screen, but I knew that when I bought it. I know from my prior experience at the gym that I just tend to switch it on and let it play so I didn't really need one. Also, I have a mobile phone that takes pictures, plays videos, games etc and I hardly use any of those features so I figured I wouldn't need a screen to watch tiny videos on. The earphones are great - several reviwers say they fall out but I've used mine on the treadmill, rower, cross trainer, exercise bike and wave machine and they've stayed in throughout! I've got about 14 hours out of it before I had to recharge which is impressive, and although initially I missed the simplicity of the "drag & drop" method of my old mp3 player, its just a question of getting used to itunes and once you have it seems simple enough.

All in all, an excellent purchase and having never had any previous experience of apple or ipods I am very pleased with my purchase.

Now, to start with, if you want a player which is multi-purpose, and can play videos and view photos - look elsewhere. This is strictly music only (with the exception of using it as a data drive). It doesn't have a screen, but for me this is perfect. I'm tired of waiting for my other player (Sony NW-HD3) to load up, then I have to troll through various menus, select the song, wait for the hard-disk to spin up before putting in my pocket, and having to take it out every time i want a song change. This for me does exactly what I need. I use it primarily in College and at the Gym. Its great because it just clips on, you turn it on and music plays literally straight away. There are no loading times, even when skipping tracks, and it is very easy to use. There's 5 buttons, all operated by the thumb, and the great thing is, if its clipped to your trousers, you just press the next track button to change songs. Theres no faffing about with menus and selecting albums.

However, it won't be perfect for everyone because of this. If you want all your music in albums, this wont work, because you can only skip through tracks, but ive made a playlist of my favorite songs of the current time, and put that on. I know whats on there too - because they are my favorite songs. iTunes is easy as you'd expect, and the sound is good too, on par with its bigger alternatives.

Now, to clear it up, there is hiss if you use in-ear headphones. I sometimes use my Sony MDR-EX71's, and there is some hiss, not particularly noticeable. But i use the headphones which came with it, which are fine, if lacking in bass response.

This thing looks and feels great, and well put together.
