Summary: After much searching online for a good mp3 CD player, I decided that the iMP-400 looked like the right CD player for myself (unfortunately this was just a little before the release of the iMP-550).
Summary: I've had the imp 400 for 3 months now, and it has performed very well. I like sound volume controls solid feel accessories anti skip car adapter pouch I don't care for the fit of the headphones. I had to sand down sharp edges over the ears before I could comfortably wear them.
Summary: I have owned several cd mp3 players (by that i mean mp3 players that play off a cd not a memory stick or something simillar) and this imp-400 is the best of all. The sound quality is great, it looks nice, the rechargeable batteries last a very long time and there are already a few firmware upgrades...
Summary: My wife isn't interesting in ripping CDs, creating mixes, MP3s, etc. Her goal was a unit that would play her large CD collection and would accept the crazy disks that her crazy husband generates. Given that sort of anecdotal background: this is the perfect player.
Summary: Once upon a time in my life I bought the big brother of iMP-400, iMP-550. But the radio was worthless!!! It was only possible to listen to the strongest radiostations, standing still and holding up the earphone cable.
Summary: I did lots of research before choosing this. I wanted an MP3 player that would allow me to recharge the included batteries with the adaptor, was little and sleek looking, and had lots of cool features. The player has exceeded my expectations. 1.
Summary: I've read these other reviews and found a few errors or misconceptions I'd like to clarify. First of all this is an excellent unit and have my reasons to prefer an mp3 cd player over a jukebox but won't get into that here.
Summary: CD MP3 players are quickly becoming obsolete, why go to the trouble of burning CD's when you can just upload songs 20 times faster. Memory wise CD players are super cheap, 1 CD costs about a 20 cents compared to the big bucks for spare memory cards, that to me is the only advantage of CD MP3...
