    For something so small and inexpensive, the 2GB iPod Shuffle is the ideal motivator to bring anywhere.So light that you hardly know that it is there, the simple controls make it a pleasure to organize your perfect workout music, or shuffle for listening enjoyment.It holds plenty of music and just seems preferable to larger devices that are more cumbersome, and there is the advantage of its small size for security reasons.In addition to workout music, I keep 30 and 60 minute sounds for background either when I flying or meditating after a long day.

    I've actually bought 2 of these less than a year ago to replace a lost 2nd gen shuffle. The first didn't work at all right out of the box. B&H handled the return very quickly and professionally. Thanks B&H!!! The replacement seemed to work pretty well for a while, but battery life is about an hour and a half now . I haven't used it all that much and probably wont be using it much more. It doesn't last long enough for many activities. I thought the smaller size was neat when I first received it, but apparently they reduced battery size in order to make it smaller. If you plan on using your player longer than 1-1/2hrs at a time you should look elsewhere!!!!!!!!!

        Comments about 2GB iPod Shuffle (Gray, 4th Generation):

        This is smaller than the original shuffle, making it more compact and durable. Also, liked the new material on the ear bud cords, as it appears to have a more rubbery flexible feel. Only wished the ear-buds came with the foam to protect our ears from the hard plastic. Can get sore if you're jogging and/or brisk walking.

                      I use this for running after my old model ipod died in an unexpected rainstorm. The size and clip function are great for using during exercise. The controls are hard to futz with while running. Though they have made it relatively easy the small size of the buttons makes accessing playlists while on the go difficult. But, great to just turn it on and go.

                      I am amazed with the functionality of such a small device. Hats off to Apple. Wonderful battery back up. Very first transition from one track to another. The only draw back I have observed that you need to live in the world of Apple. Whenever I try to eject this device from my Win7 laptop it always says that device is in use and can't eject. This gives me cold feet. I didn't like the dependency on iTune.

                          Got this for my GF to be her Workout player
                          Small, light, great sound and battery
                          The player is paying off ;)

                            Can't fault the iPod shuffle for value. It is capble of putting out great sound with good headphones. My singular complaint is that it does not have an equalizer and does not recognize the equalizer settings selected in iTunes.

                            This model replaced an earlier shuffle, the one without buttons. It survived being accidentally run through the clothes washer twice before eventually failing (chuckle). Hope I don't unintentionally test this new model in the same way, but the earlier model was of admirably solid construction.

                            2 gig only holds a few hundred songs. The new itunes doesn't allow you to pick individual songs so if you have an album on itunes the whole album is put on the shuffle. Set up a play list before loading the unit.
