The Best Mp3 Players According To Reviews



The Best MP3 Players According To Reviews
Apple iPod Best large-capacity MP3 player .​
(30GB, est .​
$300)
The iPod leads the market among hard-drive players, and it's still a​ strong favorite in​ reviews .​
The latest iPod plays both photos and video on its color screen, but according to​ reviews the 2.5-inch screen is​ too small for extended viewing .​
If you don't need space for 7,500 songs, the iPod nano and Zen Micro Photo are smaller and lighter than the 4.8-ounce iPod .​
The Creative Zen Micro Photo doesn't have the iPod's easy interface, but the Zen Micro does have an​ FM tuner and voice recorder, and it's compatible with the latest music-subscription services .​
The iPod has none of​ these features .​
a​ 60GB iPod sells for $400 .​
The iPod is​ both Mac and Windows compatible.
Apple iPod nano Best MP3 player overall .​
(2GB, est .​
$200)
The iPod nano is​ only about ¼-inch thick and weighs 1.5 ounces .​
According to​ reviews, the iPod nano tops all other MP3 players in​ reference to​ style, sound quality and ease-of-use .​
By using flash memory instead of​ a​ hard drive, it​ has no moving parts, making it​ a​ better choice for the gym than the full-size iPod; it​ also includes a​ lap counter .​
The 2GB nano, which stores nearly 500 songs, is​ PC and Mac compatible .​
Despite the widespread raves for the iPod nano, reviews and owners say it​ scratches very easily, and that using a​ protective case is​ a​ necessity instead of​ an​ option.
Creative Zen Micro Photo Most features .​
(8GB, est .​
$250)
The Zen Micro Photo, which comes in​ one of​ ten colors, is​ the best iPod alternative for those with Windows-centric music collections .​
It plays copy-protected WMA songs purchased from online stores like Napster, and it's compatible with the latest music subscription services, which allows you to​ 'rent' music on a​ monthly basis .​
The Zen has an​ FM tuner and a​ voice recorder, both missing on the iPod and iPod nano .​
The Zen, however, is​ heavier (4 ounces) and bulkier than the much-sleeker iPod nano, and it's not as​ easy to​ use as​ any of​ the iPod models .​
Sound quality, according to​ reviews, is​ excellent .​
The Zen is​ only compatible with Windows XP.
MobiBLU DAH-1500i Smallest MP3 player .​
(1GB, est .​
$130)
The MobiBLU is​ about the size of​ a​ caramel candy -- about a​ one-inch cube .​
But remarkably, according to​ reviews it's also a​ pretty good player, with a​ lot of​ features crammed into its tiny body .​
It has a​ tiny OLED display, an​ FM tuner and a​ voice recorder in​ a​ .63-ounce case .​
The MobiBLU is​ easy to​ use, and though sound quality is​ good, reviews claim it's not up to​ the level of​ iPod and Creative .​
At about 8.5 hours, battery life is​ a​ bit short .​
The MobiBLU works with both Windows and Mac computers .​
The MobiBLU comes in​ six colors and is​ also available with 512MB (est .​
$100).
Budget MP3 player .​
(512MB, est .​
$85)
The Zen Nano beats the iPod Shuffle in​ price and sounds great, according to​ experts .​
It comes in​ eight different colors (including pink and orange) and doesn't skimp on features, with an​ FM tuner, LCD display, voice recorder and line-in recording -- all features missing on the competing iPod shuffle .​
It runs 19 hours on a​ single AAA battery .​
Experts say the Zen Nano Plus is​ the best inexpensive lightweight flash player -- it​ weighs just 1.3 ounces .​
Its 512MB memory holds about 60 songs.
