Summary: bought for my sons birthday, his old one died. These hold a lot of songs and are handy on trips and while doing dishes and so Mom doesn't have to hear whatever they are listening to while she's trying to work. recommended.
Summary: it arrived fine, no issues with seller...BUT...this product from Apple is HORRIBLE!!!! it worked for 20 mins!!! then stopped working.. I was able to download music onto it...and it plays when it's plugged into computer but when I go to use it as an IPOD should be used, it is dead....it shows a full charge as well...so that is not the issue.... It is just a junk product. Wish I had read the review first. Now I have to deal with the hassle of returning it to Amazon..
Summary: It's a no-frills product, but that's what it's intended to be. Make a few playlists and/or designate a couple podcasts, and this will help you bring your audio with you in a form so compact, it's probably smaller than your earbuds. I actually keep my iPod Shuffle in my earbuds case. If you don't need a ton of storage and want something compact, this is a great product.
Summary: I tried swimming with waterproof mp3 players and waterproof iPhone covers and all ended badly. The water won. But I've had my waterproof iPod shuffle for a year now and it works and works. Yesterday mid swim in my icy cove in coastal Maine, I pulled my trusty iPod out of my swimming top where I'd kept it until I wanted to listen to my audio book. I didn't realize the headphones were not attached.
Summary: These iPods are terrific. Great improvement on the Apple design which can result in the iPod shorting out from moisture. I had an issue with mine and a company representative immediately reached out and sent me a free replacement. Tremendous service and a great experience.
