Anyone here still uses an iPod shuffle? I love it for loading up quickly and hitting it on the go. And durable too!
Like your post above states Erickj, I am about to buy a 2nd as a backup for my gen2.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.
Streamlines we are sim. in several areas. I also stage my gear (to include electronics) but for day trips & agreed also re. the interface when running. I do all of mine outside & need to keep my focus on vehicles + the road surface thus why your comment about the Shuffle interface is spot on.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!
I'm in an odd situation because the antitragus in each of my ears points outward rather than (the normal) upward. For me this means than the typical earbud headphones supplied by Apple simply fall out as soon as I put them in. My ears don't form the little cup and groove that most people have which holds earbuds in place.A slight lane veer though as I am curious about what earphones you are anyone else in this thread prefer while running?
