Hey guys my review of my new Black shuffle will be up later ( regular and for people who use it to workout ) but I found that I can use my Nike Vapor running headphones with the shuffle. It may work with other headphones most likely but here's what I did. I played it through the regular headphones through my workout, then turned off the shuffle after , unplugged the headphones and pugged in my Nike ones and turned it to shuffle and BAM! Still playing! I switched it to play through and it kept playing, so you can use them just as long as you have the volume and playlist set, works for me til they come out with ones with controls.
