I was doing my typical surfing and stumbled upon a link that pretty much says that the Shuffle's output quality can school any other popular MP3 player. Well, not basically, it does. This could be taken advantage of, especially if people use iPod's for music production one way or another, and will cause them to think twice about size / price.
simply amazing that the shuffle handles the frequencies that well. You would think that being that small it would not do so well. Pretty sweet. However, I am afraid that no one will ever use it for its capabilities in a powerful amplified environment.

very very interesting. I have been impressed with my shuffles sound from the first moment I listened to it but I didn't know it was that good. I use sony dj headphones on mine and the bas shines through so well. I listen to a lot of reggae/dub and good bass performance is a must. praise the mighty shuffle.
thanks for the article.

I had a few Sony headphones/buds throughout the years and they treated me very well. I'm going to stray this time. Ordered a pair of Sennheiser MX550 ear buds from Circuit City. Should be a great deal.
MX550, almost sounds like a logitech mouse...
Corrected :: I said headphones, not ear buds earlier

Thank you Apple. In a day of throw away electronics and the lowering of audio quality, you come and make the crappy sounding mp3 (or aac) sound decent. Whitlock-good choice, they make the best headphones in the world. My advice to anyone who loves listening to music is to keep mp3 a portable media and never use it when you have access to CDs or LPs. Your ears will thank you for it. -maestro
It'd definetly worth spending on the headphones, improoves the sound no end! I've bought a pair of Sony MDR-EX71SL to pair with my shuffel partly becuase they are white and match the shuffell nicely but also becuase they sound great, they have these little rubber gromits on the end which when rammed into your ears propley create a seal and improove the bass loads and also cuts our the rest of the worlds noise (have to watch out for traffic a bit more now though!) . They dont sound quite as nice as my full size pair of Beyer Dynamics DT331s but then thier a bit on the large size to wander around the streets with...
