Music in Another Dimension

My husband decided he was going to get back on the treadmill and needed to buy an iPod Shuffle to listen to music as he exercises.  He shows up with this thing.....

Now this is a man who has ruined two cell phones by not taking them out of his pocket before putting his jeans in the wash.  I know he can't see the little symbols on there without his reading glasses, and his fingers are probably too fat to handle the controls.  I give it less than a month before he loses it, sits on it, washes it or tries to use it as change at a drive through.

What is the purpose of making such tiny electronics?  Why even bother with headphones?  At this point, why not just put all the music on an actual ear piece, like a hearing aid?  Or have they done that already?
