Summary: I've had my RCA S2501 MP3 player for about a month. Initially, it was great: Both the player and the headphones could go several hours without charging. (I run a lot -- usually an hour and a half a day. At first, I could go two or three days without having to recharge either part of the unit.) But in the past few days, the headphones have stopped holding a charge. When I charge the headphones, the orange light stays on continually.
Summary: I used this unit about 5 times and really enjoyed the freedom of using a wireless unit while I worked out, even though the sound quality was poor, and I am far from picky. That is due to the wireless ear buds being huge, and I don't have small ears, either. They pretty much just rested on the outside of my ears, held in place by the ear hooks, necessitating my turning the volume all the way up to partially drown out the sound of the gym's music.
Summary: For several year old technology, this little player is rather sharo. ound is good for what it is; wireless earphones are a bit bulky, and I anticipate having problems w/ the plastic ear rings in the future, simply as a result of their material, but overall, this is a great device and serves my purposes [erfectly - which are inside- and outside- athletic centered.
Summary: The player comes with a link to download music, but that site no longer exists. So, it makes me wonder if I had any problems with the player, would the parent company exist anymore? And how can I be buying a product brand new and the website is already out of business? That said, now that I have music on it I love it. I love a wireless device. However, you still need to have the payer on you. I can walk about 2 rooms away and then I lose the music.
Summary: Overall, I am happy with my purchase, even if there are a couple of issues. The sound is good, although when I use it at the gym, I need to have the volume all the way up in order to drown out the gym music. I think that's because the ear buds on the wireless headphones don't fit properly in my ears. They are a littl big. But outside of the gym, walking for example, I don't need the volume up nearly that high.
