I bought my eldest daughter this cd palyer for christmas last year. For size and sound quality it is brilliant. The batteries seem to last for ages and the little slip in headphones are so comfortable you dont even know your wearing them. Its looks are very sleek and slimline in a silver colour, you also have the choice of leaving the remote attatched to the headphone wire or taling it off. The remote has a small lcd display whichtells you what track your playing and also allows you to control all the functions of the player, it also clips onto your belt or elsewhere.
