View Full Version : MP3 players, I'm clueless...

I was looking for something I could use while working out, I don't need something that holds a lot of songs, and I don't want to spend more than $200. Any suggestions ?

The iPod mini is now $199 (more battery life, less accessories)

Also, you might want to consider the new iPod Shuffle... Starting at $99, Flash memory

And plenty of add-ons/accessories to choose from...

I highly reccommend the Rio Karma. It sounds great and it has a 20gb hard drive. If you look in the right places you can get it for 179.99. I have also used the ipod 10gb and had a lot of problems with it and i switched to the karma a few months ago and i wish i got the karma the first time.

I second the Rio brand. I've got the "Sport" Model (not sure of the official name) that is yellow. I've used it jogging for at least a year and a half and love it. It hasn't ever had a problem at all.

I have a Creative MuVo TX FM.

Its a flash based player that comes in a tiny form factor and is extremely easy to use. I think it comes with 256, 512, and 1gig memory sizes. This is not sufficient for storing your entire music collection, but for working out, walking, working around the house, it is perfect.

It also acts as a USB thumb drive, so its pretty helpful at work also.

yeah i have to muvo slim 512, and it's solid to work out and run with.
