Product Details

Apple 2GB Green 3rd Generation iPod Shuffle, Model MC381LLA

Features:

  • The world’s smallest music player
    To create the world’s smallest music player, we moved the controls from iPod shuffle to the earphone cord. This makes iPod shuffle smaller than ever, and the controls are right where you can reach them. So when you want to play, pause, or skip to the next tune, you don’t have to fumble for your iPod shuffle — just follow the cord and press a button
  • Easy-access controls
    The controls are located on the right earphone cord. With command central strategically placed in this more convenient location, you can navigate your music — and activate the VoiceOver feature — without taking your eyes off your run, your ride, or whatever you’re doing. iPod shuffle includes these easy-access controls, but you can also use headphones with similar controls from manufacturers like Scosche, Klipsch, V-MODA, and Belkin
  • Your music library. To go
    iPod shuffle is now available in both 2GB and 4GB capacities. So you have plenty of room to store hours and hours of music — up to 1,000 songs with the 4GB model. That’s a load of essentials for your workout or commute. And there’s room for multiple playlists and audiobooks, too
  • Let’s talk color
    The anodized aluminum enclosure makes iPod shuffle sleek and durable. It’s even more colorful in gleaming pink, blue, green, black, or silver. And making its debut: the special edition iPod shuffle in polished stainless steel (Talk about rock star treatment). Even the iPod shuffle clip rocks. It attaches securely to your shirt, jacket, workout gear, and backpack, making iPod shuffle the perfect fashion tech-cessory. And yes, there’s still room for personalized engraving
  • The first music player that talks to you
    VoiceOver will surely be the next big hit on your iPod shuffle. Say you’re listening to a song and want to know the title or the artist. Just press a button, and VoiceOver tells you. You can even hear the names of your playlists. And when your battery needs charging, VoiceOver tells you that, too
  • Multiple playlists
    You’ve probably made multiple playlists in iTunes. One for your commute. One for the gym. One for just chilling out. Now you can sync playlists on your computer with iPod shuffle, and play the perfect mix for your activity or mood. VoiceOver tells you the name of each playlist, so it’s easy to switch between them and find the one you want without looking
  • Multiple languages
    A French love song. A Spanish bolero. An Italian cantata. Your music library has songs from all over the world. That’s why VoiceOver speaks 20 different languages. So it can tell you song titles and artists in the correct languages
  • To shuffle or not to shuffle
    The shuffle switch has three positions. Flip it to the left, and you’ll hear your music in a refreshingly random way. Flip it to the middle, and your songs play in order. Or flip to the right to turn iPod shuffle off

    I use the product while I am running. It stays clipped on better than the older iPod shuffle. I like the simple controls. It took me a couple tries to figure them out, but now they are really easy. The only thing the controls are missing that I could do on the older iPod shuffle is skip through a song or podcast to a particular part. However, all the pros out weight the cons by a long shot. It is great!

    I bought this product primarily for workouts. The size make it a perfect item to clip onto my shirt collar. Virtually weightless. I found that after my first workout this has absolutely no sweat protection. My 2nd generation shuffle sat in the same spot on my workout gear and never had an issue. This one constantly cuts out and flat out refuses to work. All because it is in the proximity of sweat.

    For workouts, this is a terrible device. Look for something else.

    The controls are terrible, too. How hard would it have been to put a few small buttons on this device to control the music? Putting them on the cord forces me to buy new headsets to control the unit, or some sort of cable that has the controls. Why?

    Someone at Apple was clearly thinking of revenue and not innovation on this one.

          Comments about Apple 2GB Silver 3rd Generation iPod Shuffle:

          Works great for the most part, easy to set up, you get the hang of the "remote" very quickly, and of course itunes makes it a snap to get playlists set up. Only complaint is the ear buds. Because of the "remote" that is incorporated into the headphones, you cannot use a different type of headphone, so they are difficult to keep in your ears while working out. Maybe someone out there has a solution?

              I bought this ipod to use while working out. It works fine but I don't like the fact that the controls are on the right headphone wire. Sometimes it is difficult to fast forward songs (which is done through series of clicks on the middle button). When the headphone wires get moist the ipod won't respond to the controller at all.
