If you're thinking of buying a digital audio player, the
most important thing to consider is what makes you
happy as you listen to the music you love. If it's too
complicated will it put you off using it? The following
guide will help you to decide which features and
model are right for you.
If you already have a large digital music collection, make sure that your new MP3 player is compatible with the file format your songs are in. Most modern MP3 players will play most file formats, but it's worth double-checking to avoid disappointment

What is an iPod
Which iPod is best for you?
iPod ShuffleThe colourful, clip-and-go iPod shuffle. With buttons, VoiceOver and playlists. Great for running and people on the go.
iPod NanoAt just 5.4mm thin - and about the size of a credit card - the iPod nano nano is the thinnest iPod ever made. The 2.5-inch Multi-Touch display is nearly twice as big as the display on the previous iPod nano, so you can see more of the music, photos and videos you love. Buttons let you quickly play, pause, change songs or adjust the volume. The smooth new anodised aluminium design makes iPod nano feel as good as it sounds. And iPod nano wouldn't be iPod nano without gorgeous, hard-to-choose-from colours
iPod TouchFun was built into every millimetre of the new thinner, lighter iPod touch. It does more than ever, more powerfully than ever, from playing games to playing music to just playing around. And everything looks tremendous on the 4-inch Retina display. Take photos on the amazing iSight camera, use the panoramic feature to shoot your favourite skyline and upload them instantly to Facebook over Wifi.
iPod ClassicWith 160GB of storage, iPod classic is the take-everything-everywhere iPod. iPod classic can hold up to 40,000 songs, 200 hours of video, 25,000 photos or any combination. And you get up to 36 hours of battery life, so you can keep on rocking for a long, long time.
