Creative Zen Stone Plus & Creative TravelSound Zen Stone

Digital Audio Players
[ Music ] ^M00:00:01 >> Hi I'm Jasmine France senior associate editor for CNET.com and I'm here today with two separate products actually, but they go together so we're gonna do a video with both of the products in it for once. The first is the creative Zen Stone Plus and then there is the creative travel sound Zen Stone. As you can see they go together even their names sound alike. We're gonna start out with the Zen Stone Plus. Now, this is a modified version of the screen list Zen Stone that came out a little ways before this player did. Aside from the screen there are some minor control differences as well. Instead of a switch you have a rocker up here which has the play, pause, and power and a shortcut button. There's also a built in mike for voice recordings. And on the front you have the five way control pad which is pretty self explanatory track shuttle buttons, volume controls, and a center select key. And then on the bottom you always like this, a standard mini USB port for sinking and charging. Along with the voice recorder this player has a built in FM tuner and a stopwatch. So, that paired with some other optional accessories such as a wrist band and an arm band this is an excellent player for the gym. This player also has a really good price plane. Its two gigabytes goes for 79 dollars and you can choose from six different colors black, white, green, blue, pink, and red. You can also get this other accessory to go with it and this is a 20 to 40 dollar accessory depending on where you get it. And as you can see it's a little mini speaker set. And the player fits in just like so. And it's a really kinda cute little design. There's a flap in the back that you pop out and it will actually prop it up so you can listen to it. There is also a batter compartment, it takes two triple A batteries. I think it's rated for about ten to 12 hours of playback which is okay for speakers this size. It actually sounds quite good considering the size of the speakers. You're not gonna get excellent base response from something like this. but, it will do for small hotel rooms and traveling and plus it's really small so it'll fit nicely in your carryon. The one design cork I have when you pair these two things together is that once you plug it in it actually covers up the power jack on the player and you do have to power the player separately from the speakers. So, you will have to take it in and out if you wanna turn it on and off. But, other than that I think it's a great little pair of devices. So, we have the creative Zen Stone Plus and the creative Travel Sound Zen Stone which will work with both the Zen Stone plus and the Zen Stone. I'm Jasmine France for CNET. [ Music ]
