picBruddy Designs is now shipping the ShuffleMate, its all-in-one iPod shuffle accessory that combines the functionality of a case with clips and wire management. Made of clear plastic, the ShuffleMate fits both iPod shuffle models, has a wrap-around base to reduce excess wire, and features a built-in belt clip.

Bruddy offers a $3 discount with quantities of two or more.

When I first saw this I thought it was lame and awkward.  Now I am knida coming around on the idea.  Since I bring my shuffle and my apple in ears to school every day, this could be handy.  With its various clipping setups, this also might enable the use of the shuffle without an armand or a pocket.  I dont know, I must just have to pick up one of these

Or you can use a 3M small cord clip for your headphone cord management and save yourself 15.80

This could be handy if you already wear in ID badge on a lanyard or a retractable clip. You could clip it to the back of your ID badge. Looks as if it can be used vertically or horizontally.

I just got mine today and it’s way cool.  The wire management works, and unlike a cord clip, is right there on the case, which means that everything ties up into a nice little package when not in use.  When in use, you can still take up the slack from the extra wire.  Its integral clip will attach to something thin, but not to something thick, like a pea-coat buttonhole—but they give you a bulldog clip that’s good for that, and I have a retractable clip that I use.  It was very smart of them to make the slots for the “accessories” fit common connectors. (See their website “Gallery” for ilustrations.)  The Shufflemate is a great improvement over the naked shuffle.  Its most original idea is the integral wire management, which is better than having this separately (as in Flatso’s suggestion of using a 3M cord clip).  The integral clip may or may not be as good as other alternatives, like the ShuffleClip and DVForges “The Clips”;  also, it doesn’t convey an impression of great strength.  However, its ability to accept commonly available alternatives makes it more versatile than either.  I’ve not seen anything announced that appears better to me, and my experience so far (all of 6 hours of it) bears out the positive impression that led me to order it.
