Summary: This item arrived yesterday. It is good looking and easy to operate. The wireless earphone is fantastic. Good sound quality. But the pedometer is a joke: it is too sensitive even I set the sensitivity level as low. I tried 10 steps, and it shows more than 20 steps counted. Even any movement of my arm caused several steps counted.
Summary: Overall I am very satisfied with the S2501A. Sound quality is good and the wireless headphones work as advertised. I thought the ear clips wouldn't last long, though. After about ten uses one broke. Now, I'm trying to find a site that I can get replacement ear clips. If anyone knows where I can purchase the replacement ear clips I would be very thankful.
Summary: Great player for working out. The wireless headphones feature is the best. I usually don't wear a player to the gym because the wire get snagged, but I don't have to worry about it with these!
RCA S2501 Jet Stream MP3 1GB with Wireless Headphones

Summary: I bought this MP3 specifically for its wireless headphones. The wireless headphones are great & I use them regularly without any problems or comfort issues with the over-ear attachments for road running & in the gym. The MP3 controls are very easy to use & the colored screen very clear to read. The only downside is only 1GB of storage but hopefully RCA will make a bigger one with wireless headphones soon. Absolutely LOVE this MP3!!!
Summary: I purchased this unit to help me workout. I did not want wires hanging down the the wireless was an attraction for me. I like the idea that it is resistant to water, Its light, has proven durable. I use the pedometer extensively and I can check my bmi (body mass index) If I tire of listening to my MP3's (it holds more than 300) I can listen to the radio or record from the radio (but you have to use wired headphones for that) I purchased this as an alternative to IPOD of...
Summary: Any one know where I can get the plastic replacement ear clips for the wireless earphones? One of the plastic clips broke while I was attaching it to the eaphone. I tried calling RCA(Audiobox) and talked with several people who stated that they would get back to me and to date(two weeks), no one has. It's just a very small inexpensive piece of plastic but without it the wireless earphones do not stay in place when I run. Need help.
Summary: The wireless connection is great. Working out with this MP3 player is so much better than the wired version, I could never go back. The ear buds that come with it are really not good. I bought some Jabra eargels off [...] and it worked. The fit and sound are great now. What I don't understand is why they don't make a 2GB or 4GB model.
Pros: Easy to Set Up, Great sound clarity, Lightweight, Stylish, Superior to Bluetooth
