Software and Quality
One minor hiccup with the features is the support of album artwork. You can view any album covers that you purchased from iTunes. But, if you ripped a CD in iTunes, the Fuze player won’t pull up that artwork.
Depending on your view, this is either a good or bad thing. The Fuze + player doesn’t come with any software for the computer. Instead, you just plug the player in and then drag and drop media on the player. This is quite easy, but may be confusing for beginner users. If you do want the assistance of a media player, Mac users can use iTunes, and Windows users can use Windows Media Player.
The quality of the Fuze + is quite good. The headphones, however, do limit the sound of the audio a bit. So, if you really want to take advantage of what your MP3 player can do, invest in some better headphones. It comes with EQ presets, which allow you to choose the best preset for the type of music that you are playing. It also has a normal and custom EQ.
The video quality of this player is amazing. The videos are sharp, and the colors are crisp. The only problem with the screen is when you hold slightly to the right when turned to landscape view. But, that’s really it. The Fuze + also features a menu just for podcasts. This is a feature not normally found on most budget players.
