Although audio players such as the Apple iPod Nano, Touch and Shuffle are not quite as popular nowadays as they were several years ago, they are still selling strongly and have their benefits.

Smartphones have generally replaced audio players as the way to listen to music and other audio, but there are still many advantages to using a separate audio player.

One of these is with sport, where a small, sturdy and basic audio player, such as the iPod shuffle, is highly convenient.

Apple iPods are generally quite pricey but you can also find cheap, basic MP3 players if you just want to listen to your audio rather than play any games.
