**Review to ALL types of MP3 systems**
14 April 2008
Summary: Every month, manufacturers unleash even more MP3 players to an increasingly confused public. Not only do these devices have wildly divergent features, but ongoing format wars mean the MP3 player you choose dictates where you can buy your digital music. These devices are anything but one-size-fits-all. First, there's the question of design.
Excerpt: Modern technology has come on in leaps and bounds and computers are getting smaller and more efficient. We can watch tv, stream films and play music all from the one device, however the speakers they have built in are inept and very poor quality. The sound performance is abysmal and I was very disappointed with the speakers on my notebook. Just because I want a smaller machine doesn't mean I don't want it to make as much noise!
Excerpt: I got these a couple of years ago as a present. They are a great set of speakers. it is fantastic how compact they are and can be easily carried around when going on holiday or camping. It is also very useful that there don't have too many wires to get in the way and get tangled in transportation. For a small set of speakers they have great sound quality and I was very surprised by this initially.
Excerpt: Many years ago I bought a walkman that came with a free pair of speakers. They were terrible quality but I used them a lot as I liked the idea of having something portable that allowed me to play the music on my walkman out loud. As I moved off cassettes and CD's onto MP3's I found that most of my music was either stored on the computer, mp3 player or my phone.
Excerpt: Having used these for many years now, I think that they are possibly the best portable speakers money can buy. Initially I was somewhat put off by their expensive price tag (£50), but decided to go ahead and give them a go anyway! Included in the box was all the accessories you could ever imagine needing, a Mains Adaptor, Carry Case, Cables to get you connected, and the speakers themselves ... Arguably the only things missing were the batteries!
Excerpt: After getting an mp3 player for my christmas I decided the accessory I needed the most were some speakers. I was given this by my mom for my birthday and was extremely pleased. -----------------------The Speakers ------------------------------ They run on 4 AA batteries, which last a quite a long time, I use rechargeable ones which had not run out even after a 7 hour journey at full pelt. You can also power these electrically but the wire is not included in the set.
Excerpt: Tja, da saß ich Weihnachten 2005 glücklich mit meinem mir selber geschenkten neuen Notebook unter dem Tannenbaum und begann alles auszuprobieren. Passend zu dem neuen Notebook gab es eine DVB-T Karte. Zu dem Zeitpunkt wusste ich noch nicht, auf was ich mich da eingelassen hatte. Denn die DVB-T Karte sollte mich noch bis weit über die Weihnachtsferien hinaus beschäftigen. Aber das ist eine andere Geschichte.
