iPod nano 7th Generation Review

iPod nano 7th Generation Review

Hey guys, this is Austin and today I’m here
with a review of the new iPod nano 7th generation. This brings back a much
more traditional design but is it any good? First step is to pop open the box
and inside you’ll find the iPod nano in yellow, although in person it’s
pretty green. You’ll also find the new Lightning cable to charge and sync and the
Apple EarPods which look like the old earbuds but actually don’t sound bad
at all. Pop the screen protector off and finally the iPod is free. Take a look
around the iPod nano and you’ll see it’s absurdly small. Along the left side
you’ll see the volume rockers as well as a center button which allows you to pause,
skip tracks and more. The top houses a sleep/wake button and on bottom you’ll
see the Lightning jack, plastic window for the Bluetooth antenna and
the headphone jack. To give you a better idea of how thin the new nano
is, it’s identical in thickness to the cable on the EarPods. Hook in a pair of beefier
headphones and the nano looks downright silly. Speaking of audio,
of course that’s what an iPod is all about. With the included headphones the nano
sounds perfectly fine with a moderate amount of bass and solid overall
quality. Hook up a pair of more power hungry headphones like the Audio-Technica
ATH-M50s and the iPod will drive them just fine although of course
not as well with a proper setup. Even though it looks just like iOS Apple officially
calls this the Nano OS and it’s not hard to see why. You have no support
for apps and Wi-Fi is nowhere to be found so it’s best not to go toss your
iPhone away just yet. To navigate you can swipe back from any screen or hit the
home button to go to the homescreen. It’s very responsive and features
a 2.5” inch display with a resolution of 240×432. In addition to music
you can always watch video on the tiny display. It plays 480p video synced from
iTunes and the player is just fine but honestly I can’t imagine anyone actually
wanting to watch a movie on something this small. Same goes for pictures,
you can view them but it’s not something terribly useful. Nike+ is built-in
along with a pedometer which can be helpful for exercising. You’ll find a
few more apps like radio, podcasts, and a clock but don’t expect to do much more
than listen to music on it. Battery life is really impressive. I’ve been using
the nano off and on for several days now with the screen on full brightness and
I’ve only just dented my first charge. The thing with the iPod nano is that
it’s still entirely tethered to iTunes. Want to add a song? Hopefully you
don’t have Spotify because you’re going to need to import the music into iTunes,
find your Lightning cable, let the iPod stop anything you were doing and
then transfer the files over. With music available effortlessly everywhere you
turn on smartphones and even the iPod touch this feels like a major hassle.
Don’t get me wrong, the iPod nano is the best iPod for music yet. It’s
tiny, uncomplicated and amazingly enough plays MP3s. The thing is that’s exactly
what the first iPod nano did when I bought it in 2005. If this was $100
I’d say it makes sense but at $150 it’s not much less than the vastly more useful
iPod touch which makes it a hard sell. Don’t forget to hit up that Like button
and if you’re interested in more videos like this I’ve got lots of coverage
of the new iPod touch! Anyway I will catch you in the next one!

  3. I would like to know if the radio app works when on in underground trains ?

  20. I have this one and I have to say it's a bit useless because it's difficult to transfer music to it and I can listen to music from my phone but if you can transfer to it with no problem it's awsome.

  21. my friend has one of those,exept it is black

  22. Austin, you forgot to mention that it plays radio. While iPhones have spotify, it requires a sometimes expensive data plan.

  23. Can I watch YouTube

  24. Give it camera good as iphone ? 6 and every will be crazy about buying this shit atleast give it a camera

  25. "Music availiable effortlessly on iPhones*"
    Must have cell reception, enough data, and to skip songs, a premium membership, at least on Spotify.
    With only a 180 mb per month Tracfone plan, you can see why I use an iPod.

  71. What do you do with the iPods after a while? Like do you sell them? Gove them away? I'd like to know because I want one. Thank you!

  72. people are dieing crying I dont need an ipod… well its there choice… for me ipod means a lot… & still most of the smart ph uses dac chips infrior to ipod… I dont think bugdet smartphone makers even care about the sound quality on their devices.. for serious listnrs dedicated music players is still meaningful​… Anybody who wants only noise in their ear are free to use their smrtph for all purpose… owning an axon or v10 or v5 is a different matter…

  73. IPod Touch

  74. It’s almost the end of 2018 and YouTube recommended this to me and Austin I want to ask is 2012 you ok?

  75. Can we see videos in it?

  76. I have one of those

  77. if this nano can stream music, that will be the best iPod ever

  78. USB cable of this iPod can connect to Windows laptop?


  80. bro you have the same intro from luna which his name is Austin as well

  81. don't believe me, i watched a movie on this thing.

  82. "The best iPod for music yet"

    Uh, the Classic never stopped being the best. Apple just stopped making them.

  83. 2018 anyone ?

  84. This doesn’t connect to a fm transmitter

  85. I’m honestly glad they ended the nano series. If they kept making ‘em, the 8 wouldn’t have a headphone jack. And the X wouldn’t have a single button and would be really expensive for no reason.

  86. Sans wifi. Wtf

  87. It's pretty expensive considering what it's meant to do

  88. I have a iPod Nano gen 2 xD it’s only 2gb though and it’s almost full I’m gonna need a new iPod soon

  89. My stepsister gave one of these in pink. She said she found it in a rental car 3 years ago. I charged it and there was 250 songs from the 90s. The clock said it was Jan 1st 1970??? I changed it and the radio still works perfectly.

  90. Lighting jack?

    I thought that it was called the lightning port

  91. D O W N R I G H T. S I L L Y

  92. 2019????

  93. it's 2019 and i still want this thing

  94. Does AirPods connect this ipod

  95. Does connect AirPods This iPod please answer

  96. 100 mph to fast for me.

  97. Austin got a lot better

  98. The samsung galaxy nexus used as a size comparison made me realize how old this video was!
