Summary: This is the WORST CD player that I have ever purchased. It was brand new in the packaging which was great. But I plugged in the head phones and started listening to my audio book and low and behold I couldn't hear anything out of the left headphone. Wiggling the cord a bit got the sound to work for a few seconds but just touching the CD player would make it skip. Then once I had the head phones working I would move my head and the CD player would skip.
Summary: While this player played CDs well, and the FM radio works great, it is noisy as it sets itself to play the CD. Also, don't try jogging with it, or using an elliptical machine with it resting on the machine, because it will skip. I even had it skip on me when I was simply walking and carrying it in my hand. It is a perfectly fine player if you are just sitting around listening to music or books, but if you move around much, you may not be happy with this player.
