The Insignia Sport MP3 Player with Bluetooth offers a host of features, including compatibility with A2DP headphones, an FM radio, Rhapsody DNA integration, and support for photos and videos--all at $89.99 for the 4GB version.
The player is pretty standard looking, with a relatively small 1.7-inch screen and a mechanical scroll wheel for navigating among menus and controlling playback.
The player is compact enough to fit in most pockets. It measures 3.3 inches by 1.6 inches by 0.4 inch and weighs only 1.4 ounces. Battery life is rated for up to 25 hours.
The right edge of the player houses the standard 3.5mm headphone jack and a mini USB jack, which is used for charging and syncing. The device supports an impressive array of audio file types, including MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, WMA DRM, and OGG. It's also compatible with both Mac and Windows operating systems.
Along the top spine of the Insignia Sport you'll find a power/hold switch along with a toggle marked with stars. This button--unique to Insignia players--lets you easily rate songs on the fly. The ratings can then be reverse synced to Windows Media Player.
The bottom edge of the player houses a microSD card slot, which allows you to add to the max internal memory of 4GB.
The Insignia Sport's FM radio offers an autoscan function as well as presets--pretty standard stuff. Nonstandard is the fact that it can receive RDS data from stations that broadcast it and then tag and store song information for you to pull up later.
This player offers solid sound quality through wired headphones. There are six preset EQs, as well as a five-band custom mode for tweaking the sound to your liking.
