Had my Shuffle for a week now and after a number of close calls, both fluffies from the headphones have now disappeared. A couple of times last week, I managed to catch up with one as it escaped falling from the ear-piece and rolling along the pavement in the cold London wind. These headphones are, without a doubt, nearly the worst Apple product I have ever used. If I had spent a larger amount on a Photo iPod and got these stupid things with it, I'd be really annoyed. Now I have to break into the second pack that came with the Shuffle they're really starting to piss me off.
