This new kid on the block is a simple device to use with good sound and a good set of headphones included in the package (which is unusual). It has an FM tuner, equalizer, and voice recorder, and that’s about it. But what do you want for $95? If you want an easy to use affordable device that plays music and offers good navigation, this may be the music player for you. The only disadvantages to this system is the external batteries and the equalizer settings.

This new kid on the block is a simple device to use with good sound and a good set of headphones included in the package (which is unusual). It has an FM tuner, equalizer, and voice recorder, and that’s about it. But what do you want for $95? If you want an easy to use affordable device that plays music and offers good navigation, this may be the music player for you. The only disadvantages to this system is the external batteries and the equalizer settings.

The interface for the Genius is very simple, and is a small OLED display with minimal information. This enables you to view the song information without feeling like you are reading a large print novel crammed onto a small page. The other thing that lends to the ease of use is the many buttons. Although this seems like a detractor at first, remember that you won’t have to use both hands as often as you do when you’re combining buttons and wheels for different settings. The Genius give good sound, and you won’t have to go out and buy an additional head set just to replace a substandard one you already paid for—the headset that’s included works very well. The FM tuner picks up stations very well, even from inside buildings.

One of the complaints about this unit is the equalizer, which has five different settings. Normally this would not be a problem, but the Genius makes you go to a separate menu for the settings instead of letting your switch equalizer presets while you’re listening. If you only listen to one kid of music, that shouldn’t bother you because you won’t need to change it much. However, if you switch genres frequently it can be a pain. Still, the good sound, the simple little extras, and the ease of use should make it easy to pay $95 for this device and not regret it.
