iPod Shuffle 4th Generation Review – The Best iPod Shuffle Yet?


iPod Shuffle 4th Generation Vs. 3rd Generation

One major change from the 3rd generation to the 4th is that the latter now includes simple buttons on the device itself. To control the previous generation, users had to manage the device with the controls on the included headphones. This was designed to make it easier to switch songs on the go, though many users found it frustrating that there were no controls on the actual device.

Both devices feature “VoiceOver” – a voice function that’ll tell you which songs and artists you’re listening to. This is essential, as neither generation of iPod Shuffle features a screen.

The main differences include the fact that the price was dropped with the newest generation of iPod Shuffle, the battery life was extended from 10 to 15 hours, and there is no longer an option for a 4GB storage device with the 4th generation.

Pros Of The iPod Shuffle

Most people know that iPods don’t generally come cheap. After all, Apple are top of the game and produce only high-end products. This is what makes the Shuffle so appealing: it’s the cheapest iPod model available and is affordable to just about anyone! It may still be more expensive than other 2GB MP3 players, but it’s fantastic value for an Apple product.

This iPod comes with a strong clip, making it easy to use when you’re out and about, exercising or down at the gym.

Fortunately anything purchased in the last couple of years is probably capable of working with your software and hardware, but definitely make sure to cross check your specs against what the software manufacturer recommends. The most important thing you must have is a big hard drive with a LOT of extra free space and more RAM than they suggest. These are always safe bets for using digital mixing software.

Next, is obviously the best DJ software your budget allows.
