No, it isn't. Would suggest you look that one up. Besides any of which, 2Gb versus 4Gb.....and no display whatsoever....oh but yeah let me just choose the Apple because I've been blinded by marketing.

I would say they are going to appeal to different markets. Shuffles are very popular with runners who want something as small as possible.

What do you need a display for on a 4GB mp3 player? So you can see how little features it has and browse through your six albums? My ipod shuffle is five years old, never had a single problem with it, dropped it hundreds of times and I don't have some tatty cheap screen to crack when I'm doing weights in the gym.

had one once. binned it, it irritated me so much. without a doubt the worst piece of tech ever. sounds awful, terrible to use, and even worse to get music on to. far better devices out there for similar or less money.

Look at the state of that thing you linked. Shuffles are stripped back music players for running or short listens. Super light and only a few controls to operate which is a blessing when you're knackered and trying to do something in a device.

Apples and oranges etc.

I'm not getting the comments about sound quality.
Mp3's are digital files where surely the only difference you'll get in sound quality is the bitrate the music files are stored and played at.
It's the headphones you use that make the difference no?
Apple earphones are shocking, but then it's not like you get a set of Bose in-ear phones with any other player.
If you use the earphones you get with any device, then expect average sound quality at best.

​all manufacturers will decode mp3 into analogue sound via there own algorithm. so the same mp3 file will sound different on different brands of players even with the same headphones.

Rather pick up a Sansa Clip+

£30 for a 2GB MP3 with no display, no thanks.

MP3 is digital, correct - this is exactly the problem.
Headphones aren't digital, they're analogue.
It's the DAC - Digital to Analogue converter that will result in sound quality, and the one on the shuffle is terrible.

Of course you can get an external DAC, but then it gets rid of the point of the tiny music player.

ooh just under £30 for some average tatt. .. argos must be short on space to offer up such a bargain ... even at a tenner this isn't worth it.

I agree with one of the other comments about battery. and how awkward it is to get music on there... and with a WHOPPING 2gb!!!! hell yeah.. that's a NO!

What you mean you can just put any music from anywhere onto an android device and it just works without needing to install tons of bloatware and iTunes just to get the thing up and running. So many blinded by the hype, Apple your amazing!

Or you can get a clone on eBay for about £2.

Be serious.

That thing is hideous, badly built, bulky compared to a Shuffle which is used for sports, and comes with some ancient charging unit. Why is there a screen on it? How can you see a screen when it's clipped on to your shorts? You need to use controls on the earphones. Or if they break easily be able to change controls simply going by feel without looking at the device while on the go.

SD Card slot? Are you f***ing kidding me? You want to take something with slot on it out in the rain? Who's bright idea was that?

This is what you're comparing to a Shuffle?

Wise up. This is a bog standard MP3 player, not a Shuffle competitor.

Exactly. Got outed as having absolutely no clue what you're talking about by linking to some POS and now you're throwing out the random insults.

Just to further add to how useless that thing you linked to is - it has a plastic finish, which can be irritating next to the skin. When you clip a Shuffle to your shorts, the clip rests against your skin. It has a soft anodised finish that never gets cold or irritates when rubbing, even after 50k+ it still won't bug you. Which by the way is a major concern for anyone doing distance or endurance training. Even the slightest of seams on clothes turn into a nightmare in long distance.

Clueless. Go on, link to some other POS so we can laugh at you.

Blinded by marketing or you know, actually play sport. Not as though the vast majority of Apple's music players ever made have screens or anything. Heaven forbid Apple make a range of products for different uses.

No, all music players must have a screen even if it will be tucked away in your shorts never to be looked at.

Must. Have. A. Screen.

Keep it coming.

Sounds like you're a great candidate for a 2GB shuffle user.
Enjoy it mate.

Meanwhile, I'll stick to my rockboxed clip+ with expandable storage and multiple playlist options.
A lot of opinions on here, but that is the great thing with choice. Those of you that don't like the iPod shuffle could just not buy one!

I think it's a great little device for when you don't want to have your large phone in your pocket (i.e. gym or running). There's technically better devices for cheaper, but when all your music is in iTunes anyway...
