iPod shuffle 2012

 

We take another look at the Apple iPod shuffle to see if it makes sense in 2012.

Great build quality ; VoiceOver works well ; Respectable sound quality

Still function-light ; Limited storage

Format support is also the standard among the iPod family. AAC and MP3 are the two main types supported, with Apple Lossless, AIFF and WAV available for those not willing to sacrifice quality for file size. With just 2GB of internal memory, though,...

iPod shuffle 4th Gen (2010)

 

Will Apple's acceptance that the iPod shuffle needs physical controls redeem its entry-level device?

is, the issue isn't the lack of a larger capacity but equally portable player in Apple's iPod line-up, but rather that of pricing. The gap between the 2GB, £39 iPod shuffle and the £129, 8GB iPod nano is enough that we doubt anyone looking at the...

Apple iPod Shuffle (4G) review

 

Apple's Shuffle is back in a user-friendly format that marks a return to form from the unsuccessful third generation player

Great looks ; easier to use than the last version ; improved sound quality

Only 2GB of memory means you’ll have to really compress your tunes

The iPod Shuffle is back to its best, sounding and looking as good as ever

Apple iPod shuffle 4G

 

Apple's iPod Shuffle received another makeover when Apple launched its new iPod line up in September, but were they right to go back to one of the previous designs or has the re-inclusion of buttons spoilt it? While the iPod touch is the flagship and...

Small, light, VoiceOver feature, ability to limit volume, Genius playlist support

No screen, has to be managed from your computer, only 2GB

The iPod shuffle is a simple and easy to use MP3 player that will require you to have some grasp of iTunes to get the most out of it, but if you've got that you'll love it. For runners, the ability to create playlists based on the Genius mixes is a...

Apple has swallowed its pride and reintroduced buttons to the iPod Shuffle

Stylish, simple and perfectly suited to the gym

Apple iPod Shuffle 4GB review

 

Is the new shuffle the greatest screen-less MP3 player yet?

VoiceOver feature ; Introduction of playlists ; Beautiful design

Can't use standard earbuds

Superb design, packed with new features. Great value for money, too.

Fourth-generation Apple iPod shuffle review

 

The fourth-generation Apple iPod shuffle is a sleek and easy-to-use device, largely thanks to the return of the controls offered by the first- and second-generation shuffles. The VoiceOver feature is also a big winner.

Apple iPod Shuffle (4th generation) review

 

The iPod Shuffle as always been the smallest and the cheapest of Apple's MP3 players. The last generation was the smallest yet, around the size of an AAA battery, but Apple achieved this miniaturisation by relocating all the buttons from the body of...

The newest iPod Shuffle isn't without its charms, but there are better value MP3 players available, even at this low price.
