The new, colorful, clip-and-go iPod shuffle. With buttons, VoiceOver, and playlists, it's the best of iPod shuffle.

Crafted from a single piece of aluminum and polished to a beautiful shine, the iPod shuffle's main body emanates a feeling of solid, sleek and durable. The big control pad on the front ensures easy control of your music at your fingertips, and the shuffle switch placed on the top allows you to changing the play mode to match your listening style. Thanks to the wearable design with a clip, you can simply attach the shuffle to your shirt or workout gear and it stays put — whether you’re running an errand or running around the track.

The brand new VoiceOver feature tells you what you want to hear, just press the VoiceOver button and you can hear the track name, artist or playlist name with maximum convenience. The Genius function provides a good mix of music on iPod shuffle, it finds songs that sounds great together, then creates Genius Mixes, delivering a perfect way to rediscover songs you haven't listened to in, like, forever.

  • newegg As Beautiful as It Is Wearable The iPod shuffle's main body is crafted from a single piece of aluminum and polished to a beautiful shine, so the new iPod shuffle feels solid, sleek and durable. Its wearable design allows you to clip it to your shirt, jacket, workout gear, backpack, or purse strap, and it stays put — whether you’re running an errand or running around the track.
  • newegg Control Your Music with Just a Click It’s back — the big, clickable control pad on the front of iPod shuffle. It’s 18 percent larger than on previous iPod shuffle models, so it’s even easier to see and use the music controls. Press the center button to play and pause. Press the outer buttons to skip forward or back and adjust volume. Click, click, click. It’s music to your fingers.
  • newegg Play It Your Way Maybe you’re the spontaneous type. Or maybe you prefer a little order. Just flip the shuffle switch to suit your listening style. Flip it to the left, and you’ll hear your music in a refreshingly random way. Flip it to the middle, and your songs play in order. Or flip to the right to turn iPod shuffle off.
  • newegg Give Your Songs a Voice Say you’re listening to a song and want to know the title or the artist. Just press the new VoiceOver button on top of your iPod shuffle, and it tells you. You can even use VoiceOver to hear the names of playlists and switch between them. And if your battery needs charging, VoiceOver tells you that, too.
  • newegg Speak Your Language. A French love song. A Spanish bolero. An Italian cantata. Your music library has songs from all over the world. That’s why VoiceOver speaks 25 different languages. So it can tell you song titles and artists in their native tongues or any language you choose.
  • newegg Genius Comes to iPod Shuffle You probably have multiple playlists in iTunes on your computer. One for your commute. One for the gym. One for just chillaxing. Sync all those playlists to iPod shuffle, and you can play the perfect mix for whatever mood strikes you. There’s another way to get a good mix of music on iPod shuffle: Let Genius do the work. Activate Genius in iTunes on your computer, and it automatically finds songs that sound great together. Then it creates Genius Mixes, which you can easily sync to your iPod shuffle. It’s the perfect way to rediscover songs you haven’t listened to in, like, forever.

4 out of 5 eggsYou can get the 5th gen ones for $49

Pros: Lightweight and very small. Good set of headphones. Holds a decent amount of songs - 3 or 4 full albums of what I like. Navigation takes a bit of getting used to but works as designed (I have no idea why people are complaining about it, except they are too lazy to figure it out, it's isn't astrophysics folks).

Cons: Holds a decent amount of songs (see above). You have to have I-tunes installed to use it. shuffle does sometimes repeat songs too quickly but for 50 bucks you can always just press 'next track'. The headphone/charge combo isn't the most brilliant idea in the world so I bought a 1/8" jack to usb plug that I use instead, as I am using another brand of headphones. If you lose the headphones or they get damaged you have to buy a new set from Apple or a retailer and they cost half as much as the whole package.

Other Thoughts: As much as I love Newegg I would never pay the price that the partner stores are asking, which is currently $99. I have no idea who they think they are fooling with these ridiculous prices so if you want one go to the Apple Store online or other retailer and you'll pay $49 for a 5th generation (read - latest model) shuffle.

1 out of 5 eggsnot worth it

Pros: It's small.

Cons: Expensive for what it is. Having to use i-tunes. Being the "shuffle" you can't control what you want to listen to, outside of skipping songs.

I have had mine for 2 weeks and it seems to have already died. I am going to take it back and try again.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: It's good when out jogging or working out. Has a nice firm clip.

Cons: It's incredibly overpriced plus the hassle of being forced to install apple software. I know I'm ignoring the concept of it being called "Shuffle" but I would like to actually select the albums and what not that I want to play. I would suggest buying a different Mp3 player from a different brand that offers more features at a lower price.

Other Thoughts: Mine fell in the toilet when buckling my belt forgetting that it was clipped on there.

1 out of 5 eggsPricey explective

Pros: It plays music. It's small.

Cons: Price, you can buy other MP3 players WITHOUT the hassels of Apple or iTunes for the same price with a larger capacty. More of a paperweight to me

Other Thoughts: Bassically only got this for my girlfriend's brother for a graduation gift. About the only thing I can say about this thing.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect running partner!

Pros: Well done! After finally finding some great running headphones (Philips SHQ-4000!) I decided to rid myself of an ancient Samsung 1Gb SDMX1. It will not die! I've killed like seven sets of headphones, but the SDMX1 lives on. After using it exclusively for years, I can tell the Shuffle has much better sound quality.
Built-in clip and super lightweight. You could clip it to your bangs!
And shuffle. Over the years, I've tried to make a mix per month for running. Newly discovered music, etc. It's redundant to the point where I anticipate the next song coming as the current one ends. Ripe for shuffle! Loaded selections from two years of running mixes.

Cons: Cons @ $50?!

Other Thoughts: I've owned a number of iPods which thankfully broke so I could eventually find and use a Cowon S9! I cracked my S9's screen but still carry it for divx and music along with a hi-res Verizon iPhone. Cowon rocks!

In the meantime I've gone Mac so I've got native iTunes. Made a difference for me. iTunes on PC felt like a virus. Since it's part of my MacBook Pro, the Shuffle made sense. Your mileage may vary.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad, still some easy things to fix

Pros: Very small (smaller than 2nd gen); Battery life is okay but not great; Buttons are better placed and a little bigger/raised more; Extremely lightweight.

Cons: USB cable to charge is incredibly short but then again its super lightweight so you can just let the player hang off the cable. The voiceover or whatever they call it is a waste and the shuffle is one of the players you should know the songs you're putting on there. You can't really surprise yourself with a 2GB music list. Wish the battery life was a little longer. Random function still plays a song you might have heard 2min ago leaving plenty of unplayed songs hanging around.

Other Thoughts: I used the 2nd gen shuffle and mounted it on the side of my motorcycle helmet with my helmet speakers routing into the headphone jack. The 2nd gen buttons were a little hard to control with gloves on and it was a little bulky for a small player. This one however is truly square in shape, low profile, lightweight and coupled with the raised buttons allows me to control it even better while riding. I still don't understand how certain companies refuse to have the random function go through the playlist once before it starts repeating songs. On this player you have to put the "on" switch in the middle for regular play when you have to slide it all the way over for random, it would make sense to do it the opposite way so you didn't have to pay attention to the positioning. The voiceover function is dumb as stated above and sounds worse than a circa 2000 Nav system. Why is there no basic black color either? All in all its a basic player and for $50 its a good buy.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, affordable, and perfect for mowing / running / etc.

Pros: Amazingly small. I'm still wondering how they fit everything inside it. It's lighter than a single AA battery (IMO). The sound quality is great (playing 350kbps VBR AAC), and the volume definitely goes higher than necessary (not a bad thing).

Beautiful product and packaging. Clip works well, and was a key selling point for me, as I'll be using this iPod mostly in active settings. I have an iPod Touch to use for other situations. Voiceover works pretty well.

In contrast to previous generations, I'm very glad they decided to put the button controls back on the shuffle again. The previous generation forced you to use Apple headphones. This generation works with any headphones, which is a huge plus for me.

For the amount of design and portability provided here, it's a pretty good deal at under $50. It's one of the first Apple products that I think is appropriately priced.

Cons: Not a complete con, more of a neutral issue, but the shuffle makes it difficult to navigate by album/artist/etc. The reason I can't completely categorize this as a con, because it's by design. The shuffle isn't really intended for those that must be able to navigate to specific albums to listen to them. That's not really it's purpose (hence it's name).

You're restricted to either listening to songs sequentially or in shuffle mode (which I use most of the time). The only exception is that you're able to create playlists and then can browse through playlists. I'm not a fan of playlists in general, so I can't comment as to how well the navigation is for those.

Other Thoughts: I haven't used it enough yet to gauge how accurate Apple's battery life expectations are, though I haven't been disappointed by battery life in their other products.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but pricey for 2gb mp3

Pros: The body of the player is made from a solid piece of aluminum and appears very sturdy. The most likely area for the unit to suffer any type of moisture penetration is through the clickable buttons, although that too appears fairly solid (more so than other low-end plastic mp3 players). The Shuttle's earphone jack does double duty for charging the unit as well, thereby alleviating the need for a separate USB port; again enhancing the unit's resistance against moisture/sweat during workouts.

Functionality: It's an Apple product and works with iTunes--pretty straight-forward. The Shuttle DOES handle playlists and podcasts (and supports resume playback position); this is a great feature low-end mp3 players do not have. The Shuttle has Voice Over that will announce songs & playlists for navigation; it works pretty well. Battery life is solid.

Cons: Voice Over installation fails for many Win7 users and Apple tech support seemed oblivious despite their forums having numerous people with problems. That problem IS fixable. Navigation on the Shuttle can be difficult during exercise since the buttons (and the unit) are so tiny. As previously mentioned, the Shuttle charges via a special cable that plugs into the headphone jack; the cable is only about 2 inches. The Shuttle only handles 2gb of audio; would have been nice if it did 4gb.

Other Thoughts: The Shuttle is a tiny device, easily lost or accidentally left on clothing bound to be washed. As an mp3 player for running/sports, it seems very solid and easily clips onto a shirt or waist-band. As mentioned, navigation on the Shuttle can be tricky while on the move. Still, the solid water-resistant uni-body construction makes it an attractive device for activity where sweat and movement are involved.
