Apple iPod shuffle (4th Generation with Click Wheel)

PC Magazine
17 February 2011
  • Conclusion: It's hard to get excited about an iPod with no screen, but Apple's inclusion of on-player controls makes the affordable shuffle easier to navigate—and a better value.
  • Pros: Lowest-priced iPod. Now has on-player controls for easier navigation. Voiceover feature speaks the name of songs, artists, and playlists.
  • Cons: Not a lot of storage. No screen, thus no video or photo support. Bundled with lousy earbuds.

iPod shuffle 4G: A Welcome Return to Classic Form

The Mac Observer
31 December 2010
  • Conclusion: For those who don’t need the features of the clip-on nano 6G, this is a solid, inexpensive, easy to use iPod. The design is reasonably solid, but not outstanding. _______ * My beloved silver shuffle 2G nano went through the laundry and died. It was in a jeans pocket. One has to be careful with these little guys.
  • Pros: Inexpensive, small, easy to clip on clothing (with caveat), VoiceOver, playlists, great online 43 page PDF manual.
  • Cons: The ergonomics of the clip are ruined by the smaller design, hearing the battery level was tricky for this reviewer, battery level light could have been placed better, won’t fit in some 2G cases, 3-way power button inferior to 2G design.

Apple iPod Shuffle 2010 (2GB)

CNET
9 August 2010
  • Summary: The iPod Shuffle's buttons are back, and the lightest, smallest MP3 player on the planet is now better than ever.
  • Cons: The 2GB capacity can't hold much; there's no headphone remote nor radio; the track controls tend to get pinched when clipping the iPod to your clothes; and the chances of you accidentally running it through the washing machine are quite high.

  • Summary: If you’re after a companion to keep you company whilst you’re going on your jog but don’t want to spend £129 for a 6th Generation iPod Nano then this is the one for you. However, if you’re after a music player that is small but stores more than 2GB the iPod Nano would be a better purchase
  • Pros: New polished and vibrant look, VoiceOver feature
  • Cons: Only 2GB

  • Pros: VoiceOver button, longer battery life, return of physical playback controls
  • Cons: Difficult to determine exact battery level, no hold feature, only 2GB model available, no in-line controls on headphones

Apple iPod Shuffle (4G)

What Hi-Fi?
2 November 2010
  • Excerpt: Many thought that Apple scored an own goal with the third-generation iPod Shuffle. Stripping it of controls made for a dinkier device, but forced owners to either stick with the supplied headphones (with an in-line remote) or pay extra for an remote adaptor. Not that Apple would admit getting it wrong, but the fact that the Shuffle bears a striking resemblance to the 2nd generation model, complete with built-in controls, is as close to an admission as we're likely to...
  • Pros: Great looks, easier to use than the last version, improved sound quality
  • Cons: Only 2GB of memory means you’ll have to really compress your tunes
