There is quite a high chance that you could pick up the YP-S2 and use it to skip rock, if it was left on the ground. Its appearance is unique and most definitely eye catching. The compact size means it only weights 15 grams which is amazingly light. This makes the player one of the best players to be used during sporting activities, such as jogging, where extra weight and size is not ideal.
When using the supplied headphones, the sound produce is quite good, slightly above average, giving satisfying sound with a reasonable Total Harmonic Distortion. Upon using an additional pair of headphones, the sound quality had a slight improvement, since the sound quality was quite good whilst using the supplied headphones. The supplied headphones also act as a strap to hold the player.
The player supports audio files in the WMA and MP3 file formats, as well as the Ogg format. Its file transfer is rather slow, taking up to 6 minutes to transfer a few albums of music.
The fundamental functions are decent, but the navigation can be a tricky, especially when trying to find a specific file. It is only possible to play individual tracks one by one, since the skip feature is the only method of changing the song. Sadly it lacks a hold function and despite the fact that the buttons are of a reasonable size, certain features can only be activated providing no other button is pressed other than the ones that are assigned to activate the function.
Its battery stamina is not fantastic, on average only providing 12 hours of continuous audio playback, from a full charge which takes a few hours.
