  • Price isnt as competitive as it should be considering all the missing features
  • Unforgiving earbuds
  • Lacks a display
  • Requires dock to charge
  • Needs removable clip. Not usable as a flash drive. Sound not as crisp as previous model. Original earphones included. Requires a dock.
  • Being limited to 128-Kps AAC. Small enough to lose. Larger capacity Nano with screen is not that much more expensive and does sound better.

  • Included earbuds are adequate at best
  • The iPod Shuffle has no screen
  • So theres 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
