The iPod shuffle 4th generation is an excellent choice of audio player, the ease of use is just superb, by the touch of a button it tells you the battery life, the song playing and the playlist your currently listening to.
Small is big! 2GB storage doesn't sound a lot but I find that 2GB is plenty enough to store all of your favourite music, copying music to and from it is very simple, just connect it to your computer via the included USB cable, open iTunes and then drag and drop the music you want. Included in the box: apple headphones, USB cable and instructions (and the glorious apple stickers obviously)
In my opinion it is the best compact audio player I have had, the battery is excellent, the design is excellent, the audio quality is crisp and it doesn't cost that much to buy (unlike most iPods!) I think that this is the best of the iPod shuffles, combining the buttons of the 2nd generation and the voice over from the 3rd generation it is a perfect combination and the size of it, it's tiny! When clipped onto your clothes with the clip on the back you can't even feel you've got it on!
