What is the Best Sport MP3 Player?
I purchased a small MP3 player for my workouts to resolve my extreme dislike of obnoxious gym music. After a sweat drenching treadmill run I learned not to assume that all players tolerated wetness or vigorous activity. Understanding that most MP3 players are marketed to video viewers and gamers, with a little trial and a lot of error I found several outstanding Sport-tolerant, music only or media players (music plus FM radio, video player and voice recorder) that mix brilliant audio with outstanding sturdiness and play length. Manufacturer's list prices shown.
Clips, designed with clothes pin like closures enable very easy attachment to clothes and/or accessories, are enormously convenient, however, their weak clip mechanisms and stiff ear buds decrease their durability and ease of use. I highly recommend these clips due to their superior music functionally and portability, even though Apple's environmentally friendly iPod Shuffle and iPod Nano and the SanDisk's memory expandable Sansa Clip are water sensitive.
Compacts,slightly larger than the Clips, are excellent for intense gym workouts and recreational sports when combined with their active wear or water resistant accessories or cases. I recommend the sleek looking SanDisk Sansa Fuze, the Samsung YP-U5, the Philips Go Gear RaGa and Go Gear ViBE.
Headbands, a MP3 flash drive inside an earphone kills two birds with one stone because they are designed for wearing on the head rather than the body, so users never worry about getting wires tangled around arms or fitness gear and machines. Best non-water resistant headphones are the JVC XA-A55CL and the Sony W Series Walkman. Three exceptional 100% water submersibles adaptable for use in non-water activities are the ingeniously designed Mi-Sport VBT, the NU Technology Dolphin Lite and the Dolphin Touch.
Last words, select Sport MP3 players like your sport shoes, buy players or shoes that enhance your physical and mental needs and resist overly using the same players or shoes for every sport and activity.
