So, my birthday is coming up soon, and people are going to want to know what to get me.<br><br>I'm looking to replace my aging 1st gen. 10GB iPod.<br><br>I just heard my aunt's new 512MB iPod Shuffle. The sound that came out of that little thing was unbelievable! Sounded MUCH better than my old iPod. Does anyone here have one? Do you think the same thing?<br><br>Does the new iPod mini's sound as good as the Shuffle? I don't know what to do? $150 for the 1GB/no screen (no being able to say, "I want to listen to _____ right now.") but it's so small & light and I like the idea of the case with the mountain-climber ring attatched… I could clip it to the armrest of my wheelchair and not have it on my lap, or around my neck.<br><br>But is it NOT worth $50 to get 4 times the space to get a screen and an additional 6 hours of battery life?<br><br>Oy, dilemmas, dilemmas.<br><br>BTW, My current music library is only 2.7GB with a half dozen/dozen more CD's to add (@128 AAC)<br><br>When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?

Well you still have the old iPod for being able to choose the music you'd like to listen to- I saw go for the 1gb Shuffle, and replace the older model the next time around with an iPod Mini or something...<br><br>Back in Black...
These look cool. There's a $50 version that have a bit more bling bling, but I think these go better with the Shuffle.<br><br><br>I have the Apple in-ear buds. They sound fantastic but constantly fall out of my ears.<br><br>
I have a pair of older sony's and they sound great. My biggest complaint though is the LOOOOOONG cord that they come with. They give you a plastic widget that you can partially wind the cord on, but it is very annoying. I finally went out and bought the Apple in ear phones, and put the Sony rubber ear pieces on them. They fit and sound much better that way.<br><br><br>Salus populi suprema lex

the shuffle is so small and light why bother with a case for it? It's not going to scratch or get dinged. When I have it in my shirt or pants pocket it's not even noticeable. Take Sam's advise on the better earbuds... (I wish they made a BT model ) Around the house I use my normal Sennheiser headphones, it looks stupid but sounds great.<br><br>
