Apple released a new iPod Shuffle today. It costs $79, contains 4GB of storage, and is tinier than tiny. Because it is so small, there is virtually no room for controls on the device. Apple packages its own (some would say low-quality) headphones with the Shuffle, which have playback controls built in to the headphones. Not that many other headphones on the market have these headphone built-in controls, meaning most people will be stuck with Apple's headphones. Do you think this shows that Apple has no respect for the audiophile community and is "dumbing down" audio quality for the masses? Or, for a $79 Mp3 player, do you think it is just fine to use Apple's low-quality headphones?
