Anyone here still uses an iPod shuffle? I love it for loading up quickly and hitting it on the go. And durable too!
I love my shuffle for the gym and running in particular. No hassle, no frills, just my workout mix and go. I also take it when I travel, and use it for music on the plane versus draining my iPhone battery.
In fact, I just bought another shuffle because I fear for the day this one dies (it's the first gen silver clip version). I also have my original stick shuffle, 512 gb, and it works like a charm.
I own three Gen 2 shuffles and I love them. One stays at home, one is in my travel kit (I travel a lot so I just keep a preloaded array of chargers and electronics in my rolling luggage), and one is in the bag I take to the gym.
I use them primarily for running and love them. I've tried running with my iPhone and there's simply no comparison. The ability to change songs and change volume by feel and without looking is key to why the Shuffle interface is far superior while running.
Apple - please keep producing iPods with runner friendly interfaces!
A slight lane veer though as I am curious about what earphones you are anyone else in this thread prefer while running?
