Apple iPod Classic 160GB - Black. 4.8 5 254 296
Simple but great! Can't comment on battery life yet as haven't had item long enough. Brilliant product. 31 July 2014
Excellent media centre I have over the years had many different media devices. This is by far the best. Easy to understand and use. Superb audio quality and although a relatively small screen good quality visual playback. Overall money well spent. 22 July 2014
Worth spending hi, I bought my classic 160GB a few weeks back and am really very happy with its excellent sound quality and a huge space for storing music. My entire albums are being dragged into it so all in one. The only thing I really dont like about it is the limitation of supportive file format. Unfortunately, it doesnt support flac file so wav is the alternate option for lossless files (for me). overall excellent !! 08 July 2014
Not sure yet I have loaded 1700 tracks and on its second charge the battery gives conflicting info when plugged in it reads full when cable out it reads only quarter full so not sure at the mo.. Customer service on purchase good 29 July 2014
Best Purchase EVER! Fantastic product, I've loaded all my CD's onto it and still have barely scratched the surface of the space it has! I wasn't sure at first whether it had a shuffle function as this isn't made clear anywhere but it definitely does, sound quality is fantastic and although it's the larger of the ipod range it's still small enough to slip into a pocket or handbag when on the move! Amazing! 27 July 2014

Answer: 
Thank you for your question.

The Apple iPod Classic 160GB - Black will allow your husband to transfer tracks onto the device and listen to them whenever. In regards to .wav files, they will need to be added to a iTunes library and converted to either MP3 or AAC and then transferred to the iPod.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question.

I can confirm that the Apple iPod Classic 160GB ? Black will work with a Bose Sound dock as long as the device either has a 30 pin dock connector or an AUX input. If you would like further assistance, please post a Q&A with the model number of the sound dock that you have so I can look into this for you.

Answer: 
Yes, the charger is compatible with all iPhone models up until and including the iPhone 4S.

To connect the charger to the iPhone 5, iPhone 5C or iPhone 5S you would need to purchase the Apple Lightning to 30-pin Adapter Cable.

Answer: 
I have this iPod and have used it in the sun. You may need to shadow the screen with your palm, and I wouldn't recommend extensive scrolling and navigating in the very bright sunshine, as it may be quite the strain on your eyes. Please exercise caution.

Hi there,
I know the new iPods come with the new Apple Earpods, and wondered if the iPod Classic now came with the earpods too, or if they came with the old-style earphones?
Thank you!

Thank you for your question regarding the Apple iPod Classic 160GB - Black.

Having looked into your query for you I can confirm that this item does require a computer to add the music to the device and I can also confirm that an iPad would not be suitable to add the music to this device.
