The 3rd generation Ipod shuffle, as you would expect from apple, came in an attractive box. The main product looked sleek, attractive and the bright white accessories, somehow, didn't look as tacky as they should. All the bits and bobs slotted and clicked together in a satisfying indication of external build quality and itunes whirred into life. After 4 hours of initial charging I was ready to put my playlists to good use so was out the door for a run.
That's where the positive part of this review ends. As with previous versions of ipod headphones they sleekly and stylishly slip out of your ears with the smallest amount of activity. How do those shadow people have those fits on the advert without having to call "no wait, wait, it's fallen out again!"?. Of course with the inline controller these 'phones can't be replaced with a preferable pair. If you do actually get them to stay in your ears then the quality hardly seems worth the effort. It's all toppy, tinny sounds and no bass to keep you chugging through your run. My main gripe with this product though is it's durability to moisture, or lack thereof. After 30 minutes of hard sweat the ipod started talking to me randomly, switching track, changing volume. Apparently this is a problem shared by many who have used the 3rd gen for exercise. Some part, probably the inline remote, is not resistant to even slight amounts of moisture. Once it has dried it appears to work again, but that makes it pretty useless as a work-out music source.
So in summary. A lovely looking product which works quickly and easily out of the box but only buy it if, like the apple shadows, you're too cool to sweat.

If you're thinking of getting an ipod shuffle, it's most probable because you want an ipod for exercising. here is my reasoning why you then don't want the new ipod shuffle:
when running / cycling, etc, i don't need neither screen nor video. and i don't need voiceover telling me which song i am listening to. i make my playlists before i exercise and the songs are well chosen. that's because i want good music when i exercise. and i want it in good sound quality.
but here's a problem: the headphones. the standard headphones tend to fall out when doing proper exercise and their sound quality is improvable.
thus, you really want to get your own pair. but you can't with this ipod, because then you wouldn't be able to do essential things like switching songs, controlling the volume, etc. it's just absurd.

bottom line: sports and the new ipod do not go together.
solution? just get the previous generation. they do a great job!

Let me first say that I am not an Apple Hater. I have had all except one of the ipods, and loved them dearly. This one, it seems to me, is flawed.

Within 24 hours I can no longer navigate around playlists. This facility is vital on a 4gb machine. It worked intermittently on Day 1. I reloaded everything on Day 2 to try to solve the problem and now it wont work at all. I even did a full restore.

And a dig in passing to the Apple website. I have purchased a piece of kit with a fault. Can I make contact or send an email asking for assistance? Um, no. On selecting the "problems with shuffle switch or mains connection" you get bounced out to a "sorry" screen and that is that. Apple really do not understand customer care.

So, if I was you, I would wait. This is an impressive piece of kit which may have a design flaw. The lead, which has all of the controls in it, seems very cheaply built. If this develops a problem - as I suspect mine has - you simply cannot use the machine.

Save your money until Apple get it right.

This iPod is fantastic but you are forced to use the iPod crappy headphones rather than your own. This is a major drawback as everyone knows these are rubbish. You are welcome to use your own headphones but you will not be able to change songs or use voice over, or select playlists.
Major flaw there.

I have just sent back my second new generation ipod shuffle for exactly the same fault as the first - after fairly light use, the earphone controls have ceased working. I had both ipods only for a couple of months and had had to charge them up no more than 3 or 4 times - they have had only light use. For both items the pattern was exactly the same - first the down volume stops working, then the volume cannot be controlled at all and then the middle button loses all function.

After looking on internet forums, I have realised that the problem would appear to be sweat running down the wire from the earphone into the controls. Unlike other users, the loss in functionality has been permanent and has not returned after the ipod has been left to dry out.

I bought this product to use when I go running - basically what it is marketed for but it is completely unsuitable for this use.

I think that this is a real shame as I really like the product, its size and even the earphone controls. I have not had any problems with the earphones falling out. If the controls did not pack up rendering the ipod useless after a couple of runs it would be perfect.
