The Mighty Vibe's audience is limited to Spotify Premium users, but it's an appealing little music player for those looking for an iPod Shuffle-like device to wear on the go and leave their phone at home.
Basically, the 2015 iPod got a brain transplant to keep it chugging along. Everything else about it remains unchanged making it an easy swap out for businesses that currently rely on the iPod, but a hard sell for most people.
This is a dream come true for talk-radio and sports fans, but listeners who don't appreciate those programs should pass.
If you hate iTunes, the SanDisk Clip Jam is the best bargain music player you can buy.
The Apple iPod nano 6th gen is a great product for rich people who use the gym. For everyone else, the iPod shuffle and iPod touch offer better value for money.
While the Nano is attractively small and gives good audio, we were disappointed by its poor build quality -- the battery hatch snapped off after a few days of use. Anyone who needs a compact voice recorder will love the Nano's pocketable size, but true audiophiles will find the iPod Shuffle has a more refined output stage
Great sound, brilliant OLED touchscreen, noise cancellation and as much YouTube as your Wi-Fi can handle. Shame about the extortionate price.
Active users looking to combine their love of music with their zest for outdoor activity should definitely consider Oakley's Split Thump MP3-playing sunglasses.
Though its lacks CompactFlash support, the SanDisk V-Mate is ultimately a slicker and more feature-rich mini digital VCR than the similarly priced Neuros Recorder 2 Plus.
Standalone MP3 players are still in demand, and the NWZ-A17 Walkman is a portable player that features up to 30 hours of battery life while playing full 24-bit/192kHz high-resolution music.
The updated iPod Touch remains a great portable media player and overall entertainment device, but its small screen feels like a throwback to an earlier era.
The Astell & Kern AK Jr marries classic design with class-leading sound, making it one of the best high-res players for the money.
The SanDisk Sansa Clip+ is an excellent successor to the line, offering a fitness-friendly design with a built-in belt-clip, a simple interface, solid sound quality, and plenty of handy features--all for an ultralow price. It's an unbeatable value.
When it comes to competing with Apple's iPod Touch media player, the Galaxy Player 4.2 is Samsung's best effort yet, but it's still playing catch-up.
The iPod nano 7th gen is a thin and light way to pack Hollywood hits into your pocket, but it's not as suited to the gym as the previous one.
The Sony Walkman NWZ-A846 is a great audio player with a useful noise-cancellation feature and a brilliant OLED screen. It's expensive, but it's definitely worth a look.
The Sony Walkman NWZ-A829 is a truly superb player in terms of usability, sound quality and design. It's not without its fair share of flaws -- notably the tricky video support -- but for most people it's an absolute must to consider, if not run out and buy
The Sony Walkman NWZ-X1060 packs some excellent features, such as a vivid OLED screen, effective on-board noise-cancelling technology and truly great audio quality. But it's pricy, the small screen makes for awkward Web browsing and video playback, and, overall, it's not as slick, easy to use or as feature-packed as the iPod touch
