Good: The Price, Wearability, Design
Bad: Basic amount of Functions
Comment: Its a great iPod for on the go casual listeners. Its nothing like a Nano, Touch or Clasic. But this tiny thing still packs in a huge punch. Avalible in 1 or 2GB storage capacities. Lots of colours inclusing Green and Silver. And you can plug in any headphones you want. Its a shame about no VoiceOver or no Playlists. But its still a great Device
Good: everything about it
Bad: doesn't have any screen
Good: Size and batery life
Bad: standard headphones
Comment: amazing! on a ful charge, mine lasts on average 4 days of intermittant usage. so stylish and great range of colours, of course, theres the muggability factor but if it is nicked, you can get another one for under 5 tenners! also, its very durable, ive stepped on it, dropped it out a window and accidentallyshut it the car door. the only tiny criticism is the usb connection, its very easily twisted so be warned!
Good: The colour
Bad: Every thing about it apart from the colour
Comment: This is so s**t it is a waste of money, it is so confusing and does not charge. Mine has been on charge now for 16 hours and it is still saying low battery plus I have changed my iPod shuffle 6 times now and the 7th one still dosent work properly :@. I have paid good money for this and I expect it to be at least decent. I would not eaven recomend this to anyone if I was paid a million pounds! PLEASE DONT BUY THIS PRODUCT!
Good: So small and light I can barely feel it when I'm running on the treadmill!
Bad: IT'S ALL GOOD
Comment: Well, it's perfect for the gym like I say and running. It's so light and holds enough tunes for 2 or 3 hours at the gym easily.
If you want something to look at get a normal iPod, but if you want to listen to music and nothing but, buy it. I love it!
Good: Very simple user interface, unfussy design.
Bad: Standard headphones could be better.
Comment: Often, the simplest designs are the best. This would seem to apply here.
Good: Simple look, simple controls, it just plays music
Bad: Charge time, not 100% portable due to docking station
Comment: Good design and very small. The clip is an excellent part of the design. I like to go running and this is ideal - clip it on and press play. That's all I required for my portable needs. I can’t run with an 80GB video iPod can I?!
So if you are looking for something that needs to be no hassle when you are really on the go, the new shuffle is exactly what you require.
Good: Its small size and quality audio
Bad: No faults as yet
Comment: Apple once again has made another super MP3 player have had mine for three weeks now use it for about 2 hours each day. Found battery life to last a full week and the audio to be clean and crisp as the previous Shuffle was. I can highly recommend it.
Good: Concept and firmness of the designers: they knew what they wanted in the market.
Bad: Earphones provided.
Comment: The only thing I find dangerous from a commercial point of view is the mistake made with those poor Apple earphones. The inclusion of modest Sennheiser CX300 or AKG K27i would not have been so expensive -- you can buy the CX300 in Spain (black and silver, not white colour) for a mere €26, £17.60 -- and the improvement is notable and worth mentioning. CNET.co.uk reviewer is wrong about the absence of the screen, the concept of the design makes the longed and heartfelt desired screen useless, uncomfortable, inadequate and irrelevant.
