The Zen Stone Plus also has a rocker button located on the top edge of the device that contains the play/pause/power key and a shortcut key. (The first Stone's play button was in the center of the control pad on the front.) There's also a built-in mic for voice recordings and a standard 3.5-millimeter headphone jack.
The Zen Stone Plus' simple design doesn't make it that easy to use. The screen is too small to display any meaningful song information, so there isn't much to the navigation. You can't browse songs without actually flipping through them audibly.
The Zen Stone Plus can go anywhere with you. For frequent fliers, there's even the TravelSound Zen Stone, which can be paired with the player for enjoying music in your hotel room or other places where headphones aren't so handy.
The two-color OLED display can't show much due to its small size, but it does allow the addition of some extra features. Some of more useful ones include EQ sound settings, a built-in FM tuner, and a stopwatch.
