Got to have reasonable expectations

  • Summary: An excellent product, especially for the price. With a good set of headphones the bass is very acceptable and volume perfectly suited to private listening. I would very much like to have it a meet all my needs and personal crusades, but hey, for the price I can afford to use another set of headphones; it's not like I don't have a few laying around.

  • Summary: I use this at work. I do weedeating, and as you can imagine its reallly loud. I just put it on hold, stick it in my pocket and Im good to go for a couple of hours. Even at the highest volume (which is pretty ear-drum blasting!) its batteries last. I LOVE the equalizer, and as for durability, its survived two years of abuse between work, getting left in the sun, having gatorade spilt on it, etc. I give this a definate thumbs up!

An okay player...Warning: Lead exposure hazard

J. MCCRIGHT "jdmccright", Amazon
26 December 2006
  • Summary: I got the player quickly and was easy to transfer mp3 files...just plug it into the USB port, drag, and drop. Main Menu is somewhat cryptic, using abbreviations instead of words for each selection. The little selection nub worked okay but felt a little slippery. Display is bright and readable with a nice array of backlight colors to choose or cycle through. The unit uses a AAA battery instead of the more common rechargeable kind thru the USB port.

Be Aware Does Not Work with Itunes

frances, Amazon
9 May 2006
  • Summary: Nowhere in the product description (or in the manual) does it mention that there are limited sites to download from.. in fact, there are no sites listed at all. The manual says to drag music from a music download site to the mp3player. Although this was easy to do, the player will not recognize any of the songs I downloaded. COBY customer service was unhelpful. Call and find out exactly which sites you can download from, or don't waste your money.
