MP3 Player which can *clip* to the shirt?

by copying / February 15, 2007 8:10 AM PST

other than the ipod are there any MP3 players which can clip to your clothes or something? To make it possible to walk around while listening to music.

If anybody knows of some then please share.

(NT) I suppose a phone pouch would make a nice holder.

Walking around while listening

That's why I only wear shirts with front pockets. Otherwise, I'd put the player in my trouser pocket.

Not really sure, but have another alternative.

I don't know any clip-on players from the top of my head right now, but i can tell you there are other ways to listen to music on the go. You can get a really good mp3 player, and not close in the variety in a few ways. You can get a armstrap or neckband for the player, or you can get one small enough for a pocket.
Here are some alternatives to the Ipod shuffle 2nd generation:
Sandisk Sansa e200 series/c200 - get an armstrap
Creative Zen Nano Plus- includes a neckstrap.
Creative Zen V Plus - get an armstrap
Creative Zen Vision:M - don't know if they have a strap.
Sansa Express - fit in your pocket or see if they have a wriststrap.

Also, if you only want a few couple of gb, 8 at max, get a flash player, it'll save you a lot of trouble and weight.

The Zen V and Zen V Plus also come with lanyard
by wandalynn1 / February 19, 2007 7:43 AM PST

so you can wear it around your neck. The player has a slot to slip knot the lanyard to it. It's so light you don't notice it. DOn't know if you'd want to run with it, though.

Check out Samsung F1

Check out Samsung F1. It is a little heavier than the new shuffle but you can clip to a shirt or a belt. Hope this'll help.

That Samsung...

It looks perfect, but it seems 1GB is the max size.

And will those armband things work for most MP3 players or only specific ones?

Some armbands are universal

On the top of my head, Case Logic makes some that are universal. From what I've seen of these, you usually won't be able to access the controls without taking the player out of the case.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
