    Late October is the word from my local Apple Centre - well, he said "Late October which means sometime in November."

    I would presume they come with the new headphones.

    Nope, not shipping yet:(

    There has been some discussion about this and the pics on the website show the older standard headphones. Steve also never mentioned the new buds for the shuffle but he made sure he did for the nano and video.

    Most likely no new buds.

    I would say DEFINITELY new buds. Why would Apple even consider running two production lines for the pack-in earbuds when they can save money by just running one line for one style.

    The in-ear buds don't count because they're not the super-mass-produced pack in ear buds and Apple makes the money back by charging a premium.

    Want to make a friendly wager? :)

    The new buds are also retailing for 30 bucks on apples site, another reason not to include them in the 79$ iPod.

    Or maybe they're just getting rid of old stock before they start using the new ones. I mean, the 1g shuffle came with the same earbuds as the other iPod lines too.

    Its ridiculous to think that they will sell the new shuffle with the old headphones... How stupid would Apple be to do that... If the new shuffle has the old headphones I promise I will never post on this siite ever again.. THE SHUFFLE WILL NOT, i emphasis WILL NOT ship with the old earbuds.

    I only ended up paying $30 bucks for the 2G shuffle. I had my Apple coupon from the 3G iPod Battery class action lawsuit. It was a $50 coupon.

    2G Shuffle shipping Oct. 31st...

    I ordered an iPod Shuffle a couple of weeks ago, and my order says it will ship on October 31st, and hasn't changed.

    As for the headphones, they have to be the new ones because Apple is no longer making the old ones. How are they going to sell a new product with old headphones, it just doesn't make sense.

    If that happens, i'll march right into the Apple Store, and make them replace them with the new ones...

    I ordered my shuffle here in Holland yesterday. After ordering all it said was shipping in October. As another poster mentioned though, I have now been "upgraded" to October 31st. I don't know whether this is the actual release date (hope not!). Apple might just be stretching the time as long as possible. Let's hope for shipping sometime this week! :D
