Media formats and devices have a way of circling back into relevance. Vinyl, cassette tapes, heck, even VHS are making comebacks. So it should be no surprise to see the handy iPod shuffle style of music player back on the scene. This time, it’s with an eye to streaming music, courtesy of Spotify.

Mighty is a small, square, clip-on music player. Holding more than 1,000 songs, it sports a circular set of track control buttons and a headphone jack.

Sound familiar? The twist here is that instead of drawing from your iTunes library, this portable player syncs up with your Spotify playlists. So you can use it to save your phone battery when listening to music, or leave the phone behind and use it as a stand-alone device.

With Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, it supports most headphones and speakers. It lasts up to five hours on a single charge, and water-resistance makes it worthy of outdoor wear and workouts. Additionally, unlike the iPods of old, the Mighty music player won’t get stale. It boasts a Stay Fresh feature that automatically refreshes your synced music every day.
