    Purchased the iPod shuffle to replace an older shuffle unit ahead of a major relay race. I couldn't be happier with the purchase, save for a small annoyance with the voice-over button. The device is convenient and securely clips onto a belt buckle or shorts and is extremely comfortable to wear on very long runs. I actually now use it on my commute to work in addition to runs.

    As noted above, the one grievance (knocked off a star) is the button for the voice-over. Its a big improvement over the old model in that I can hear how much battery is left, but I have a lot of trouble accessing that part of the menu.

    Not a big enough deal though to dissuade anyone from buying. Definitely a worthwhile purchase.

    Clip to running cap & jog nearly wireless free!
    Simple controls for non-sight use.
    Decent battery life.
    Liked previous larger generation for handling without accidental control button pushing & my last shuffle of same gernation lasted less than a year before it died suddenly?

            Comments about Apple 2GB iPod shuffle (Blue, 4th Generation):

            I love shuffles for their tininess and ease of clipping them on my clothes. I like to load my "fun" music on one and my "study" music on another. I know I could do this with plays lists on Ipods, but they are more cumbersome to carry around!

                I am a 48 year old mom/grandma who just wanted a music player to use while I work out at the Y. I didn't need anything fancy and this little number did the trick. I can't say enough about the speed in shipping and the confidence I have in B & H. I will always use this company if I need any electronics or electronic accessories of any kind!

                      Comments about Apple 2GB iPod shuffle (Blue, 4th Generation):

                      I bought this shuffle to replace an old one I accidentally washed in my workout shorts. I was bummed I had to replace it, but honestly, the new model is even smaller and easier to use. It has additional features that allow for voice control. The only down side is the sync. cord. It's only 2 inches long. I don't know why they made it so short. Other than that I'm very pleased.

                          never though I'd own one , but this tiny litle blue square is amazing. Haven't used it for music yet, just for learning a new language. It is great to have clipped to belt..doesn't take up any room, hardly weighs anything. a must have.

                              My son had resisted getting an i-Pod for a long time, but did not like the music at the gym he attends. This tiny iPod shuffle holds many hours of music, and for his purposes, there is no need for any function beyond the ones offered.

                              The sound is great, it is easy to use and so light you hardly know it is there. The sound quality is excellent and I would recommend this to anyone.

                              I love this ipod. I bought it to use at the gym and it works great. very lightweight.

                              Its volume capacity is very loud for such a small device.
