This thing is rock solid, much better designed than any of the junk that puts controls on the wire. It's only a small hassle having to take the iPod out to turn it on and off, but this model of the shuffle should have been designed like this in the first place. My only complaint is that it can be hard to grip the Scosche to pull out the iPod without hitting the buttons, but it's a necessary design that makes it comfortable to hit the buttons with your thumb while holding the device in your hand. If you want to plug in your 3rd-gen iPod shuffle to any old headphones, don't bother with anything else, this is what you want. Everything else will break within 3 months, but mine has gone 6 months and still works like new.
