Sound and Menus
The sound quality of the Sansa player is quite good. The headphones that come with the player are more than decent. In fact, audio sounded quite normal. You won’t get the same dynamic sound as you do in higher-end players, but the sound is better than most in the Sansa’s budget class. It has different EQ settings that allow you to change the settings based on the type of music that you are listening to. These settings include the following:
The player comes with a built-in FM radio, which has the ability to pick up nearly all local stations. It also has a voice recording feature. You can record your favorite audio or simply tape-record reminders or a class lecture.
One of the best aspects of this player is the plug and play interface. You simply plug the player into your Windows computer, and then drag and drop your music into the player. You don’t have to use Windows Media Player, but you can if you prefer that route. While the player is mainly meant for Windows, you can easily transfer data from your Mac player to your MP3.
The menus are easy to navigate. Your media is organized by the Creative step-down interface, which even beginners will find easy to use. The control button is located at the base of the player. The main power key and the hold switch are located. The other features are located on the left side of the player, including the headphone jack, microSD card slot and the built-in microphone. It has a built-in USB slot on the base.
