The limited choice of headphones is a nuisance, but the main aim of the iPod Shuffle is to provide an affordable and ultra-lightweight music player – and on that score it still succeeds admirably. The iPod nano is the mainstream model for...

Apple's latest iPod Shuffle is impressively compact; it's comparable in size and weight to an AAA battery, but you're unlikely to lose it since the sturdy, integrated metal clip keeps it firmly fastened to your clothing. This miniaturisation...

Okay. Hands up. We know were a bit late on this one, but weve only just been able to get hold of the, ahem, brand new (ish) iPod shuffle. Were at least 99 per cent sure that the delay is a case of limited product samples and nothing to do...

Apple’s third-generation iPod shuffle will please minimalist-design enthusiasts. Smaller than a USB thumb drive, it’s completely devoid of buttons, knobs, and a screen. While it is attractive, the shuffle’s earbud controls and...

Apples third-generation shuffle is a radical revision of the entry-level iPod. The controls have moved to the cable under the right-hand earbud, with only a Shuffle/Continuous Play/Off switch on the device itself. This has allowed for the smallest,...

Theres one thing that you can now be sure of when it comes to Apple products -- theyre going to be small; as small as the laws of physics could allow. We have seen them doing it for several of their products in the past and they have now done it for...

Arguably the most offbeat iPod yet, Apple's new entry-level iPod shuffle is not the value choice you might expect from the lowest-priced iPod. More jewelry than gadget, the 4GB shuffle houses plenty of storage, excellent audio quality, and divine...

The new 4 GB iPod shuffle is half the size of the previous version, but holds four times the music. The audio quality is amazing for such a small device. The new VoiceoOver when used to announce the name of the song and the artist is a striking...
