This is a nice ipod and the 4th generation is very stylish, slimmer with better features. The down side of the shuffles, or it was is that they don't have a screen so you never know what song you are getting.
This generation beats this as it has a voiceover function. It tells you the name of the track so you no longer have to play the guessing game. The ipod has a massive 4 gig capacity which means that you can store a massive amount of data on it. The amount of songs you can store depends clearly on the size but it is over a 1000. This is the equivalent to around 100 albums, bonus!
The ipod shuffle can be engraved and it comes in variety of metallic colours. The actual machine weighs the same as a pound coin and when it is worn, it can hardly be felt. That is another amazing feature of this, it has a clip so you can clip it to your pocket, shirt pocket or anything really.
The design is such that after a few goes with the shuffle, you should be able to operate it without looking at it. If you hold it the same way up, you should easily be able to feel for the skip forward and back and the volume buttons. The new apple headphones have a built in volume control so you can do that through here. The shuffle is compatible with Mac/Windows etc and as long as you have itunes, you can drag and drop, delete and move any songs you want.
The shape of the ipod makes it great for taking on holiday and as they are coloured, they are quite the fashion statement. The kid next door, lives with his attached round his neck like a necklace! The ipod comes with a lead to charge it up, but it does not come with a plug. You can only charge this through a PC/Laptop unless you buy the plug extra.
The shuffle has changed shape and size over the years and this is the best looking. It is not only smart looking, it is actually smart. It offers much faster transfer feeds and songs blast their way into your ears as soon as you can say, "Is it wrong for a guy to listen to Icona Pop?"
The shuffle marks easily, you need a cover or you will notice that the shiny exterior has the design features of new scuffs and scrapes. The ipod is sold with apple headphones, these are pretty average and you can get much better ones but in terms of sound quality with the two combined, yes I think for a machine as small as a my big toe the sound quality is pretty darn good.
I recommend this to any parents looking to buy their little ones a gift, these are robust, easy to use and fun little music players. For the adults, get one and fill it with your favourite jams for those awful bus rides, gym sessions and shopping trips. The battery life lasts for ages with this, at least 12-13 hours play time.
Summary: A very good item
