@firstname.lastname@example.org The old classic iPods are great. They’re repairable, modifiable, and they sound great too. Not at all like modern Apple devices. You can replace the spinning hard drive with flash storage, with capacities up to 2 TB on a 7th gen.
They can even run a free operating system, allowing you to drag and drop music files onto the iPod (without iTunes) and play many different file formats. I use a 5th gen myself.
