Don't bother...

Amazon

  • Summary: Really, you deserve better. Battery life isn't good, 20 hours at most just doesn't cut it for me. Sound quality is pretty good, but if you plug in your headphones diectly to the player without using the remote, you can definately hear that annoying little hissing sound. When using the remote the cord is too long and tangles easliy. The unit itself is rather bulky and thick. My friends cd players are practically half the thickness of this one.

Slim-body? I don't think so!

  • Summary: I bought this cd player a couple of weeks ago, it has good fm reception, nice quality audio, the headphones are great. The cd player look better in the pictures than it really is, is kinda big, the carbon finish is lame. About the remote, it can't change between preset stations, only does seeking but it changes between tracks though. Well, it still a nice cd player but I recommend the use of a carry case and the screen could be better.

Poor sound quality, no EQ

G. Bonina, Amazon

  • Summary: This player has it all: FM radio, MP3 playback, a remote, and it's joggable with a special hand strap. The earphones, by the way, are excellent! What this device suffers from is poor sound quality, with meager means of customization. You have two options when it comes to sound processing: Bass boost on (which makes the music sound blown out and distorted) or bass boost off. Overall, music sounds unpronounced and muffled.

Poor battery perfomance

  • Summary: Poor battery performance and the difficulty of making sure the unit is completely turned off have spoiled my satisfaction with this CD player. All too often, I have tried to play a CD only to find that the unit has mysteriously changed to the FM mode (I never listen to the radio so I never turn that mode on) and exhausted the batteries. Although the unit will turn itself off if accidentally left on while playing CDs, this does not apply to the FM mode.
