What is an iPod shuffle?

The iPod Shuffle is Apple's cheapest iPod and also the tiniest at about 1" square which makes it ideal for clipping onto your clothes whilst running, or just generally for traveling light. Because it's so small, it doesn't have room for a display to show you tracklists and playlists but Apple have cleverly got round this with VoiceOver which reads them out to you so you can hear track lists etc. as you navigate your way around your music. The current version (4th Generation) sees the welcome return of the 'next track' and 'previous track' buttons which had disappeared from previous versions, requiring you to control the iPod from the earbuds instead. Now that this niggle has been sorted, the iPod Shuffle returns to being the coolest little MP3 player on the planet, and one of the cheaper ones too at around £39 (or less with some of the deals on MacBooty).

What do I need to know?

As with all the iPods, there are several different generations of the iPod shuffle. Particularly if you are buying a secondhand iPod shuffle, be sure you know which version you are buying as the specifications change quite significantly between the different generations. There's nothing wrong with the older models, provided you know what you are buying there are some real bargains to be had. For more information see our Guide to the iPod range and How to choose the right iPod. If you're planning to use your iPod shuffle with a Mac then you'll need to have a Mac capable of running iTunes 10.1 and Mac OS x 10.5.8 or later. On a PC you'll need Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP Home or Professional (SP3) or later.

Where can I buy one?

There are many places you can buy an iPod shuffle - the leading internet retailers such as Amazon and eBay are often hard to beat but also an ever increasing number of high street retailers such as John Lewis, Sainsburys, Dixons and Best Buy also sell the iPod as well as specialist resellers such as PC World & MacWarehouse. We have put together an iPod shuffle price comparison page checking prices from all these sources to find the best deals for you.

What about a secondhand iPod shuffle?

Secondhand can be an attractive option, saving you the initial depreciation that happens as soon as you open the box, and if you buy a fairly new secondhand one, all the manufacturer's warranty will still be in place so you will be fully covered in the event of any faults. If you're prepared to go slightly older, you can often pick up some real bargains with last year's model going for a fraction of it's original price. eBay is of course one of the best places to find secondhand iPad bargains and we have created a page that searches eBay for you to find the best deals on secondhand iPod shuffle for sale. Our unique filtering system trawls through the eBay database selecting only the most relevant offers and best deals to save you time.
