1 Star Worthless
You can’t even see what song you are playing and you need to use iTunes to upload your music. For this price, you can get something a LOT better that’s not iPod that could even play videos! It doesn’t stay charged for long. I regret getting this thing! Now I’m looking to buy a non-Apple mp3 player, which I can actually SELECT what song I want to hear. Plus, unlike most mp3 players, you can’t use this as a flash drive for file storage. Completely worthless.
4 Stars Amazing for it’s tiny size….
If you want something super small to bring with you to listen to your music while at the gym or while out running or walking, this is ideal.
2 Stars Never received
I never actually received this product. It was lost by the USPS and the merchant had no more items in stock. She did however promptly refund the full purchase price as well as postage. So from that perspective things with this purchase went as well as they possibly could have given that I never actually got the ipod.
5 Stars Perfect for my needs!
I wanted an mp3 player for working out. I dont like things strapped to my arms or legs so a more traditional mp3 player was out of the question. Also I don’t really listen to music outside of the car and gym so no need for a fancy player. Once I saw this thing in person I knew it was perfect for me. Its solid metal with a built in clip, also metal. Its extremely small and light. I can clip it to various parts of my clothing to accommodate the position im currently in. The sound quality is fantastic and I love the random song choices. You also can make your own playlist in itunes and use that but personally I like the surprise of random songs plus hearing songs that you may normally skip over on albums. As for battery time, well its never died on me. Seems to hold a charge forever, even when I don’t charge it for a couple weeks while slacking on the workouts. Overall its been almost 3 years and this little thing looks great and sounds great. Also, in my opinion, the orange is the best color they have offered this in.
5 Stars Yes, I love my Shuffle!
What is there to say about the iPod shuffle that hasn’t already been said in the other 600+ reviews?
So here are the five things *I* like best about it:
It’s small and lightweight and goes right into my shirt pocket.
It’s inexpensive so if i lose or break it or if it is stolen no big deal.
I can use the controls without looking at it.
It holds just the right amount of music.
Sand doesn’t mess it up at the beach.
The charge lasts a long time.
Okay, so that’s six.
Anyway, I’ve had my shuffle for 2 1/2 years and I still love it.
