In-Depth Review

Macally’s IceSuit for iPod shuffle

Macally's IceSuit is a perfect example of basic iPod shuffle protection done right. For a penny under US$20 you receive three silicon rubber iPod shuffle sleeves in green, pink, and clear as well as an adjustable armband.

Unlike some similar products, the IceSuits completely encase your shuffle, minus the headphone jack. The portion of the IceSuit that covers the front controls of the shuffle is embossed to make it easier to find the one you want, while the rubber that covers the switch on the back is thinner to keep it operational. If you prefer, it's easy to cut out that recessed rubber rectangle to give you direct access to the switch.

The included elastic armband isn't quite as comfortable as a neoprene one for athletic activity, but it's more than adequate given the iPod shuffle's flyweight. Curiously, only the green and pink sleeves contain the notches on the back of them for use with the armband, the clear one doesn't.

Of note to iPod shuffle users who like to wear MP3 players like jewelry, IceSuits don't include a cover for the lanyard cap.


IceSuit for iPod shuffle comes with three colors
(Green, Clear, Pink)
