Meet a musical Genius.
Say you’re listening to a song you really like and want to hear other tracks that go great with it. With a few clicks, the Genius feature finds other songs on your iPod classic that sound great with the one you’re listening to, then makes a Genius playlist for you. Or get even more sets of customized songs when you use the new Genius Mixes feature in iTunes. Just sync your iPod classic to iTunes, and Genius automatically searches your library to create perfect mixes you’ll love.
