truth...is all I can give
by apoorv bohrey on 2012-07-03
I did not buy the product from flipkart but after seeing all these negative reviews I couldn't resist writing a review...
I have been a proud ipod shuffle owner for more than a year now and it has maintained efficiency , consistency and durability..... my average usage per day is around 2 hours and the charging lasts for a week.....
now about the audio quality.....haven't heard better....just for the record I have been using music players since I was in the 8th grade.....almost a decade......from cassettes to cd's and now usb.....
and it goes without saying that I've bought quite a few earphones as well......philips , sony , panasonic , creative tried 'em all......
and I must say.....amongst all my choices this has turned out to be the best till yet.....
and for those complaining about the 'BASS' and 'COMFORT'.....try ear cushions they also help in isolating noises...you can get these at almost all the mobile and electronic shops for 5-20 bucks a pair (totally depends on your bargaining skills....lol).
now to conclude.....I would say....there are very few gadgets that really are a value for your hard earned money.....this is certainly one of them.
p.s. - the bundled earphones are a bit fragile and a cause of great distress as they get tangled very easily... so be a little gentle on these babies....buying a pouch is probably the best solution

* Ultra compact design
* On-body controls are back
* Very good sound quality
* Good battery life
* Limited 2GB of memory
* No FM radio
* Limited format support
Apple is offering only 2GB for storage with no option for memory to upgrade. If you find the 2GB is not enough, there are better alternatives like the Cowon iAudio E2 with 4GB of internal memory at cheaper price or the Sansa Clip which offers a screen plus microSD card support.
Excellent Sound...Great Battery Life..Go for it!!!

After to many days of extensive search, finally I decided to buy iPod shuffle. I bought iPod Shuffle @ 2148/- only from Flipkart (WS Retail) in 28 hrs.
Due to insufficient product details stated on page ... Still I bought thinking its 4th generation Shuffle... I took a risk and I received very nicely packed "iPod Shuffle 4th Generation Gray"...
Size:- Its too small, even if you keep anywhere without headphone attached, you probably lost it... You can't imagine what Apple does in this tiny shuffle..
Sound:- It's great... You can go higher than competitors product... I used it with Tekfusion Twinwoofer..it sounds great with decent bass... In some high bit songs; the bass production is really impressive... (I didn't used stock headphones till now with iPod shuffle)
Volume:- You can go very high as compared to Sony & Philips (at least 10% - 25%)
VoiceOver Feature:- You need to installed it while setting it up... Its great.. It will tell you which song is playing... Double click tells battery percentage (Only Full Charge, 75%, 50%)... You can shuffle in between All songs, Your custom playlists, Audio book with great ease..
Battery:- I used it around for around 6-7 hrs.. Still it tells me than 50% battery remaining.. I think it will last for at 10-12 hrs (I am not sure, as I didn't check)... Some sites were revealed that the Shuffle battery last more than 15 hrs (17 hrs) as stated by Apple
Built Quality:- No buddy in this world can bit the Apples' built quality... Still I m amazed aesthetic looks..how Apple managed to put Such a great quality sound with 15 hrs of battery...
Ease of Use:- I never had any issue while finding any song... If you very well organised (Playlists'), then you won't find it any difficulties.. VoiceOver feature will you to hear what you want to...
Warrantee:- Due to lack of details by flipkart on product page... I registered my iPod Shuffle by uploading Invoice mailed by Flipkart on Apple's site.. I got confirmation on second day that your product is successfully registered and you are eligible for Apple Warrantee with telephonic assessment..
Final Remark:- iPod Shuffle 4th generation...Go for it... I don't thing any problem till now... Great Bass (With Tekfusion Twinwoofer)...Higher Volume...Great Battery Life..

This tini device produces hi quality loud sound into your ears.
I ordered and got it in just two days. Amazingly fast...
But it doesn't have different music modes, a must have thing for any mp3 player.

Frankly i was dissapointed when i got the ipod shuffle 4g. I loaded my songs on to it and started listening. The Sound Quality was pathetic and so were the earphones. You wont believe me if i said that i almost threw the earphones. The sound was flat, no bass no deepness and clarity was rubbish.
I searched up the internet and found that there is a way to set up and equalizer on a ipod shuffle. although this is not officially not supported by apple and i claim no responsibility for what goes wrong when you use this.
I installed the eq on the shuffle, according to my taste and the ipod changed from a total waste of money to a awesome buy, now even the bundled earphones have become usable.
I will give it 4/5 stars .
- excellent build quality. all aluminium design
- nifty size . fits easily with my klipsch image s3 earphones
- ease of syncing with iTunes
- a little cumbersome to install the EQ
- change in battery life when you install the EQ
- a little expensive . 2gb for 3200.
For those who are wondering where to get the eq . Just google this exactly " eq for ipod shuffle " and you wil find a link. :)
it is pretty straightforward. the only problem is that you will have to apply the eq everytime you change the songs on your ipod.
good and excellent product

Best Music Player EVER !!

Best ! It is the Best !! Every thing in and on it is best !!
Headphones are heavy than ipod itself !
People who complain about it's Quality have their own fault .
They will be having low Quality Mp3 files that stops Ipod to give it's best.People who are having Mp3 files should convert it to ACC file provided by itunes this makes your song sound at best .If you want more you shound have a lossless file and convert it to apple lossless or any lossless file that supports itunes . You will experience magic in your headphones and the headphones has defeated my logitec PC headphones which was best sounding headphone in my home and mark my WAS present is the lightweight and portable headphone.Must for music lover !!!!!

The apple shuffle is not for you if you are a music lover.no EQ,no FM,no voice recorder and most important no bass.
It is 'THE BEST' out there.............

Let me first clear upon some points......
1) Apple provides just earphones.....not earbuds (in-ear ones).......and they will obviously sound crap......bcoz of the leaking of sound and other factors..........try the ipod with a pair of earbuds or over-ear headphones........and it sounds ....WOW..!!!
2)I ...personally bought the ipod to compliment my beats by dre solos HD..........bcoz ...other brands like sony, philips,etc, don't have the power and quality that is provided by apple.......
3)And .....no need for EQ on the apple products.......any track played on them..........they all sound like reality.....I personally am a sound engineer and know that apple keeps it natural and powerful.........
sound quality is ordinary

Iam a regular customer with flipkart with so many purchases in my account, recently i have ordered a return request for ipod shuffle. the sound quality of the ipod i received is awful even it sounds quieter than my mobile phone. I have spend 3000+ for the product which is not even matching my mobile phones sound quality. So, i decided to return it, but your return team has turned down my return request. then why on earth you have this return policy. you even has not examined the product i put forward for return. this is pathetic.
Earlier i only trusted Flipkart as very good e-commerce site, but i have alternatives now. no offense flipkart, this is my honest opinion.
