Apple iPod Shuffle (4th generation) review

£40.00 Typical price

Test score %

Reviewed

The 4th generation of the Apple iPod Shuffle, launched in September 2010, is the smallest iPod around. It's a great device for using at the gym, and at just £39 it's fantastic value. But will the reduced size, and price tag, compromise its performance? We were keen to put it through our MP3 player test to find out.
