I got iPod shuffle on Christmas and however I am not fan of Apple products it was nice surprise.
It is really small and stylish but whats more important it can house 1GB of your music which is quite a lot if you commute to work, do gym session or run. Its clip comes in handy if you want to attach it. Battery life is fantastic, it needs just once a month and I use it almost everyday. Great stuff. With device you get yourself into the world of iTunes as well which good as for finding podcasts... (read more)

As a source of music for running Apple iPod Shuffle v2 is hard to beat - incredibly small and light. I run the cord from the headset inside my running vest which keeps it out off the way, and the shuffle goes clipped to my pocket. Battery life seems OK although with no gauge i recharge pretty regulalrly to avoid running out of power half way through a run. (read more)

First, the Apple iPod Shuffle v2 build quality and design are unrivalled.
Second, its minute size is practical.
Battery life is 12 hours (amazing for a such a small device)
The smaller memory capacity (1GB or 2GB) is sensible for the concept behind this player: you put your favourite songs on it only and shuffle them with i-tunes beforehand or with the random function on the player itself (push play 3 times). A screen on a player this size is pointless -- it would only drain the battery. With... (read more)

Very good get one! Although I only really got mine for travelling around, to school every day, a 2 mile bike ride there and 2 miles back. If you want an MP3 player with a screen then get an iPod nano or 30gb iPod video or whatever as iTunes is very helpful and easy.
HAPPY LISTENING! (read more)

I got the iPod Shuffle 2nd generation purely for using at the gym so I don't have to put up with the usual nonsense other patrons listen to. I got the Shuffle in green as there was nothing else but pink available. It is incredibly small in the flesh, even though I had often spied it in the shops and gazed through the plastic packaging with lustful eyes.
The Shuffle is all metal and feels solid in the hand and heavier than I expected. It synced with my Mac Mini with all the efficiency I... (read more)

A loud hissing background noise, especially with good quality in-ear phones makes the shuffle all but impossible to listen to. I had it replaced twice but all three suffered the exact same problem. If you use the earphones that come with it and only use it in noisy environments this won't be much of a problem, but with better earphones the noise was audible even when cycling. Since the player has no obvious up or down, you never know whether you are turning the volume up or down, or going... (read more)

It is an overall decent purchase but I suggest for paying the extra $90 or so for the nano is a much better purchase as you can get the screen and will be able to select specific songs as well as hold more too. (read more)

Got this in the States last year. WOW! Think it's a fantastic system. I didn't want to be another ipod person, but it really is great. I have so much music on HDD that to have a system which I can pull music onto is good. I got this as a replacement to my old MP3 player (which some one put between their legs while on the M25,on a motorbike!).
There are a couple of downsides;
1 - you need the apple iTunes to transfer the music. Yes, MP3 can be directly transferred as if the iPod is a usb... (read more)
