    I upgraded from a 2-gens ago iPod Nano because during elliptical workouts, the strap would keep coming undone. I know this was more the accessory, but the iPod had also seen its day. This new Shuffle is so tiny, you don't realize it's even clipped onto an article of clothing when you're working out. I also love the easy-to-use buttons, the voice for song notification and the ability to select playlists originally created from iTunes. Not much to dislike w/ this product.

    Small and convenient, the IPod shuffle 4th generation is convenient and has good (not great) sound, but is clumsy to use compared to the earlier version. The buttons on the earlier version were more useful and easier to manage, and it is difficult to attach the ipod to clothing (much easier in earlier version because it was slightly larger).

                  The iPod works as it should, but I had not realized it was not compatible with my car and that is why I rated it a 4 star.

                    I love the shuffle. Its perfect for my work outs - the clamp is really sturdy. The sliver matches about any outfit I have. Also take it to work to play my own music in the office. The price at b+h is unbeatable.

                      I use it at the gym, and it is so light, I don't even know it is there. Battery lasts a very long time, and it is nice to be able to check its status.
                      It remembers what you were playing when you turned it off, and it also allows you to have multiple playlists and reads them back to you for selecting.
                      I'm really happy with it.

                              Best mp3 player for joggers.
                              Have a good Seinheiser / Klipsh earphone and difference is huge.
                              I switched from Amazon to BHP twice in my last 2 transaction just that they have always demonstrated a great speed in shipping my item and for the item to actually reach me, even while choosing 'Free Shipping'.

                              Works great! Hard to clip on.

                                Not much you can say about an ipod that hasn't already been said. The only problem I've had with this shuffle is that it is hard to clip on to my shirt without accidentally pressing one of the buttons.

                                      Bought this to replace the wife's 4 year old Nano that had died. She had looked at all Ipods in the Apple store and decided the Shuffle would be fine cuz she mostly used her old one in car on shuffle mode, and preferred familiar control wheel over touch screen (yeah, we're old!). So I got her the shiny new silver Shufle for Christmas; smiles, hug, thank-you, hey, how come it doesn't have the connector thingy on the bottom to plug into docking stereo?
                                      Uh-oh.
                                      Exchanged for Nano, welcome to micro-touch-screen-land.

                                      The Shuffle is great mainly because it is so easy to use and the sound is wonderful. Didn't find the set up process so easy. The device is small so it might be difficult to clip it on if your fingers are not small.Great battery allows for long hours of listening without recharging ( 15 hours!)

                                        Small and convenient, the IPod shuffle 4th generation is convenient and has good (not great) sound, but is clumsy to use compared to the earlier version. The buttons on the earlier version were more useful and easier to manage, and it is difficult to attach the ipod to clothing (much easier in earlier version because it was slightly larger).

                                          I use this product for listening music when I´m travelling or just jogging
                                          The best thing about it is defenitly its size what makes it so perfect to take it along with your anywhere and anytime. The rounded button placement is also convenient- easy to find the right buttons without looking at the panel and the voice info compensates the lacking of screen.
                                          It would be even better if there were at least 3 settings for the music performance (classic, rock, jazz or something else) to improve the sound quality.
