Portable music players peaked with the 4th Gen Shuffle and no amount of overpriced schiit can convince me otherwise.

I had a few of these and was always impressed with sound quality. It was also quite easy to use. Cowon E2 was nice too. It didn't have the reading voice, but did have EQ presets.

Did you do that on purpose? Because schiit doesn't have any portable devices.

You see, the joke is that I substituted profanity with the name of a company that is enunciated the same way.

That said company doesn't produce portable music players is kinda besides the point lol.

I'm aware. But it's not beside the point. It breaks the context.


LoneRanger21 t1_j6l5fvk wrote

But it won't break my (or OPs) 4th Gen Ipod Shuffle right?

Cause that's what really matters here. They don't make schiit like that... at all I guess.

Which is better? This or Apple Dongle


Cyodine OP t1_j6kxqy4 wrote

Apple Dongle but if you're on a budget, then this IPod Shuffle is great.

Dongle, 'cause you can check what's playing without much guessing


Cyodine OP t1_j6n33aq wrote

I only have Frank Ocean on my shuffle, so there isn't much guessing.

Well, the lack of multiple playlists as well, for most people, it's a must

Lol I miss my shuffle, it was amazing for its time.

I love it! Most DAP’s will put out good if not great sound. A nice pair of IEM’s and a collection of great music and you are set!

I have a number of them set up by genre, acid jazz, jazz, zappa, rock. They never fail, long battery life, and since it's only my favorite stuff, shuffle is just fine. Small, cheap, durable, and sound good enough.

I actually just bought a 5gen iPod and put a 2000mah battery and a 128gb flash drive in it all for about $90. It was just kind of a fun tinker thing for me, I still use my phone with a fiio btr3k alot because of Wavelet.


Cyodine OP t1_j6p42el wrote

Was it difficult to install a new battery and more memory?
