2GB iPod shuffle

4 March 2008
  • Excerpt: (1 items) We're all busy people so let's cut to the chase, shall we? Read this review of the original second-generation iPod shuffle ( ). I'll wait. Done? Great. That pretty well sums up the current 1GB and 2GB iPod shuffles . Here are the two differences between the previous shuffle and the new 2GB model. Higher capacity: When you load the thing with four-minute, 128kbps AAC tracks, Apple's claim of 500 songs is just about on the mark.
  • Pros: Cute, rugged finish, Very affordable, Loud as you need, Good battery life
  • Cons: No Apple Lossless support, Not the best iPod for listening to podcasts and audiobooks

Apple iPod shuffle (2nd generation)

PC Magazine
17 October 2007
  • Conclusion: The second-generation iPod shuffle is impressively small, and the built-in clip makes it ideal for working out, running, or just casual listening. Its lack of a screen or any extras like an FM tuner—or even support for many iPod accessories—is countered by its impressively diminutive size and low price.
  • Pros: Very good sound quality. Extremely compact and sleek. Seamless integration with iTunes. Built-in clip. Sturdy aluminum casing. Inexpensive.
  • Cons: No screen. Doesn't work with iPod accessories that require a 30-pin dock connector. Charge/sync dock is bulky. No extra features.

  • Excerpt: In the end, there isn't a whole lot I can is wrong with the iPod Shuffle. It does everything it is intended to do. When in use, you don't even notice that it is there. Hell, my aftermarket Sony headphones I use with this product weigh more than this player. The product is simple to use, has an excellent battery life and with a capacity of 200-240 songs, one song load and one charge should set you up with hours of listening enjoyment without any unneeded bulk.

  • Excerpt: Welcome to a life less orderly. As official soundtrack to the random revolution, the iPod Shuffle Songs setting takes you on a unique journey through your music collection -- you never know what's around the next tune. Meet your new ride. More roadster than Rolls, iPod shuffle rejects routine by serving up your favorite songs in a different order every time.

iPod Shuffle (2nd Generation) Review Roundup

9 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Apple improved the Shuffle by making it smaller and lighter. The built-in clip makes it easier to carry, even when you don’t have pockets. Additionally, the aluminum material has a much better look and feel than the cheap plastic of the original.

Diminutive player stumbles out of the gate but finishes strong

Consumer Electronics Net
8 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Back in junior high, I owned what I thought was the coolest gadget ever: a radio built into a pair of slim, Walkman-style headphones. The radio itself was the size of a postage stamp, and I postulated at the time that it wouldn't be too long before there were dime-sized "cassettes" that one could load into a playback device of a similar size.
