  • Excerpt: It seems the king of the mini MP3 players is far from losing its foothold. Relatively the size of a quarter, the iPod Shuffle is still one of the best ultra compact players on the market.

Apple iPod Shuffle (second generation, 1GB)

CNET
30 March 2008
  • Summary: If you like your music playback simple and your device nearly invisible, the second-generation iPod Shuffle will suit you well. But absentminded users should steer clear of this easy-to-misplace player.
  • Pros: The competitively priced iPod Shuffle has a dead-simple user interface with satisfying tactile controls, and its integrated belt clip provides a handy way to keep track of the player. The Shuffle is available in five, metallic colors, and the package includes a cute little syncing cradle.
  • Cons: The iPod Shuffle has no screen, so there's no way to navigate easily among artists, albums, or playlists. And it only offers so-so sound quality. The player might be too small for some users, and nonstandard USB syncing takes away from its plug-and-go appeal.

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

Sprenzy
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.

iPod shuffle 1GB Review

Digitaltrends
2 November 2006
  • Conclusion: Despite my minor irritation with the shuffle’s dock-dongle, I am excited to give this new product an enthusiastic and vigorous ‘two thumbs up’. The design of the shuffle itself is fantastic. The sound quality is stunning, so long as you use good third-party headphones. The $79 price is awesome. Actually, the $79 price is much lower than I’d expect for something this enjoyable.
  • Pros: Amazing size and sound; affordable price
  • Cons: Dock dongle required; previous generation headphones are included
