To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I like the simple interface. There's no instructions but it works just like an old iPod, so you'll figure it out in seconds. I loaded it up with high-quality music and there's an option to add additional memory. A pair of pretty, white, Apple-like headphones are included but I didn't bother with them. I usually use Shure SE846s and BGVP DM6s so I tested with them. Both are famously good-sounding headphones with smooth frequency response and low distortion. They sound good, but this mp3 player did not. If anything, the high-quality headphones just emphasized its problems. Frequencies above 1 kHz are exaggerated, so everything sounds edgy and harsh. And there is NO BASS WHATSOEVER below 1 kHz, so you can't even hear drums or bass guitar. Male vocals sound oddly lifeless. No bass, no midbass, and exaggerated high frequencies make for a harsh, unpleasant listening experience, and I can't stand to listen to this player any further. It will be going back today!
Great little player! Just a reminder though, put your song files in individually as just mp3's. I have all of my files sorted into folders of each artist. So I got these for my daughter's because they love my music. So I transferred the folders containing the mp3's and a couple others that have no artist. My daughter told me there were only 6 songs on the mp3 player, when there was really about 480. So I had to manually extract each song. *Mild Crying* But it works fine now. It has 480 songs on it and is only at half capacity of storage. And there are a good chunk of Tool songs which are 7-15 mins each. So great amount of room!
This really isn't a bad little device it was very easy to hook up I just plugged it in and downloaded music.... the battery is okay in my test it lasted about six full hours before I had to charge it and it did charge pretty fast... the sound quality of the device depends on what kind of speakers you put in to the device... it's a good product for what it is and what it will do.... I can always use a backup it just couldn't do the job where I needed it to.... that being said I just needed device that has a better battery life last longer
I have bought two of these. A black one and a tealish blue one. 4GB and 8GB. I haven't used the microSD slot yet. I believe it only plays mp3 files. It comes with two songs loaded onto it. It has a regular cap and a lanyard cap. It has headphones. The sound is good. It is basically like an ipod shuffle, though It's not as well designed. The buttons aren't as precise as the ipod shuffle and it doesn't have the finished look like the ipod shuffle, but for the value, it works great! I will probably buy others.
Bought these to support a display where folks could come up and press a button to hear the audio portion of the display - so one track looped. Unfortunately buttons are a bit unresponsive so needed to press them a few times before it would either play or stop. Also at times had a 5+ second delay before actually playing...not ideal for this application. Cannot really comment on battery life as I just got them - so gave it that a "4" for now
Random play mode does not work! (and that's all I really needed it for) Every time you turn it off it just starts over from the first song and then the same one right after another. Using the folder option doesn't seem to work either, only recognized about 3 folders and just a few in them even though I had all sorts sorted by album
