Advantages: Tiny in size, strong clip, quality sound.
Disadvantages: Miniature USB cover requires a little patience.
I have not owned anything like this before and only use my mobile for minimal calls and messages, so there I was presented with a packet containing a tiny player the size of a large postage stamp, a USB cable and a set of headphones. I was unsure quite what to do at first as the package did not contain an instruction leaflet and there were no directions on the cardboard backing slip. I connected the USB cable to the little player and my computer, installation was immediate on windows 7 and there on my screen was a straightforward and easy to understand user guide and list of guidelines for the safe operation and care of the player.
The player measures 4.5cm by 3.5cm, it has a shiny black plastic finish on the front with a white body and hinged clip on the back. The clip is approximately 3cm by 3.7cm and has a strong little spring hinged mechanism. The depth of this mini player with clip is merely 1.5cm and its weight is a hardly noticeable 25g. On the right edge of the player is the USB port with an attached miniature soft plastic cover and this I've found to be slightly a fiddle to reposition once removed, next to this is a reset light the size of a pencil dot. On the left side of the player is the headphone port. The headphones are made in white plastic, the soft cable measures a good length of 114cm, the ear pieces are marked for left and right and I've felt surprised at just how comfortably and securely they sit in my ears. The Tecknika MP3 player runs on a rechargeable lithium -ion battery and battery life lasts for 9 hours.
Music tracks are quickly and easily transferred to the player by the drag and drop method. The 2GB memory allows a storage capacity for 600 tracks. I doubt I will ever want this many tracks on the player as although you can delete individual tracks it is not possible to rearrange the order. On the front of the player is a black rubber cross shaped control circle. Here there are very simple operations only; play and pause, forward and backward, increase or decrease of volume. A blue light flashes intermittently whilst tracks are playing and remains on fully when on pause.
Sound quality is quite impressive in my opinion for such a basic little device, vocals especially sound good clear and true. I find the length of cable ideal for clipping the player into a jacket or back pocket without tautness and restriction of cable and allowing free movement whilst I'm gardening also without the worry of excess cable to hanging too loosely and possibly becoming caught up on something.
After 3 weeks of using this mini player whilst working out in the garden I have not experienced any problems with the earpieces becoming aggravating or loose in my ears, the controls are simple and clear to use and the player with clip has remained securely fastened in position.
In my view this is an excellent little simple and straightforward MP3 player, very affordable, discreet and comfortable to wear, easy to use and I would recommend as ideal for music on the move.
