Thanks to Baby Driver, we’ve all been reminded of our love affair for the MP3 player — namely the iPod. Now that Apple Music, Spotify and others allow us to carry millions of songs on our phones at all times, the days of frantically loading a dedicated media player before leaving the house are long gone. However, that doesn’t mean a tiny device that easily fits in your pocket is no longer a worthy music companion. Enter Mighty, an iPod Shuffle-like gadget that syncs Spotify playlists for offline playback and the most compelling case I’ve seen in awhile for a separate music player.
The Mighty’s resemblance to the iPod Shuffle is uncanny. It’s a smidge larger, but they undeniably share design features, right down to the handy clip on the back. Up front, Mighty offers the same controls: There are buttons for skipping tracks and volume adjustments situated around a circular ring with the play/pause control (that’s also the power button) in the center. Again, it’s just like the Shuffle. The only big difference is the addition of a button in the top right corner to jump between playlists. There’s also an LED indicator to let you know when the player is on, charging or about to run out of juice. Mighty also offers 8GB of storage or what the company says is enough for more than 1,000 songs.
