Are you planning to buy new Apple iPod shuffle, here’s piece of warning! — “Apple has put DRM in the hardware to prevent you from using any earphones that you want. If you plug your old third-party headphones of any sort into the new shuffle, you’ll find that you can’t do anything with the device other than have it continuously play music, without volume controls or interruption, unless of course of you turn it off.  You will either have to use Apple earphones, or a third-party product which incorporates an 'Apple authentification chip', if you want to use the new device,” reports iLounge.
