If you hate iTunes, the SanDisk Clip Jam is the best bargain music player you can buy.
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.
If you're looking for a feature-packed flash player but you don't want to spend a ton to get one, Creative's Zen Nano Plus is the device for you.
The SanDisk Sansa slotMusic Player is a reasonable option for those who still haven't made the switch from CD to MP3, and there's no computer required, so even technophobes can use it.
The Archos Gmini 220 is an excellent portable hard drive and photo wallet, but Musicmatch hampers its file transfers.
Creative's MuVo TX FM is a great option for people who want a small, lightweight, and gymworthy player with a decent feature set.
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 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.
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
The Sony Walkman NWZ-X1050 certainly has some great features, such as a vivid OLED screen, on-board noise-cancelling technology and pristine audio quality. But it's expensive, 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
Feature-packed, intuitive and affordable, this is ideal for travelling photographers and media enthusiasts alike
Apple's third-generation iPod touch may lack a camera, but, offering faster performance than its predecessors and new features, like voice control, it remains the cream of the portable-media-player crop. There's really no other device out there at the moment that can match its sublime combination of superb features and ease of use
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.

This is a fantastic unit of its type, and a serious contender if you're in the market for a multimedia streaming speaker.
The JNC SSF-11 is based on a good overall concept but comes up lacking in the execution of most features.
