Anyone that knows me, or anyone that has been kind enough to read some of my review, knows that I like to listen to music without inflicting my style of music on them, (although some people would not say what I call music stylish). Anyway, over the years I have used several MP players, be it...

An MP3 player needs to be good at only one thing; storing and playing my music. I bought this MP3 player around 6 months ago and the reason I bought it is because I wanted a device that I could use in the gym. I did not want a very expensive one with a huge memory and when I saw this I thought...

Well hello there, thanks for looking at my review in your decision to purchase a new MP3 player. This is my first review on the site but it is not the first MP3 player I have ever owned, in fact it is not even my first iPod that I have ever owned. My wife and I recently split and as with most...

Apple iPod Shuffle (4th Generation) 2GBI must admit, for a long time I resisted buying an iPod Shuffle. I previously had an iPod Classic, which I absolutely loved, and didn't think I'd be able to cope with an MP3 player without a screen - I like being able to scroll through my music and pick out...

Introduction: Apple originally released the Ipod in 2001 and it was designed to be another mp3 player to rival all the others. It proved to be hugely successful and easily out witted all its opponents. It was designed to be small and sleek compared to all the then bulky music players you had to...

I like to keep in shape and before I fell pregnant with my baby I would run for up to five miles a day when I had the time. I had my little girl in February and although I was struggling to walk around, let alone run for the first month or so, I no longer have any excuses not to exercise daily...

When my trusty old MP3 player finally packed up in 2009, I decided to buy something a little more up-to-date with the world. A very tech-y friend of mine was quick to recommend the Shuffle, as it was only £50 at the time, and, he said, had received great reviews so far. I didn't want a bulky...

My iPod classic was too big for the gym and costing in excess of £200 I was a bit worried that I might damage it. I needed an MP3 player that was small, lightweight, cheap but good quality and durable that I could use for the gym. Since my gym sessions only last for around an hour a time the...

After years of stubbornly clinging on to analogue technology, my cassette Walkman gave up the ghost a few months ago. I decided, with heavy heart, that it was finally time to go digital.

I was lucky enough to have a work mate with one of these he didn't want - and only asked £10 for it. When I checked online, they retail for £35 - and you can pick the up for about £25 if your lucky. I doubt you'd be as lucky as me, but if its any consolation, I'm rarely that lucky. So, the 4th...

Product Information : Apple iPod shuffle MB518ZO/A 2 GB Second Generation

Manufacturer's product description

The popular iPod shuffle is just half a cubic inch in volume, weighs just half an ounce, features an aluminum design with a built-in clip. The 2GB model lets music lovers bring even more songs everywhere they go in the impossibly small iPod shuffle. The world's smallest digital music player, the iPod shuffle lets you wear your favorite songs on your sleeve. Or your lapel. Or your belt. Clip on iPod shuffle and wear it as a badge of musical devotion. You know what they say about good things and small packages. But when something 1.62 inches long and about half an ounce holds up to 480 songs, "good" and "small" don't quite cut it. Especially when you can listen to your music for up to 12 continuous hours. In fact, iPod shuffle just may be the biggest thing in small. Clip it to your coin pocket. Clip it to your bag. No matter where you clip your skip-free iPod shuffle, you'll have instant access to music. And iPod shuffle's anodized aluminum enclosure goes with absolutely everything. Put it on, turn it up, and turn some heads. Got more songs in your iTunes library? No problem. Let iTunes autofill your iPod shuffle and get a new musical experience every time. Pop follows jazz. Rock follows rap. iPod shuffle loves to improvise. Take the Shuffle switch, for instance. Even if you've synced a particular playlist, you can shuffle songs with a flick.
