Hi!

I'm looking for an mp3/mp4 player.

I want it to have albums and artists seperated. So no shuffle mode. And I need it to play WMA files. Also it needs to have a display (touch not necessary).

I'm looking for the cheapest mp3/mp4 player out there.

Do people use mp3/4 players anymore? Everyone I know just use their phones.

Buy a time machine and go back to 2003.....or just use your phone
Come back if you want to
And remember who you are
‘Cause there's nothing here for you my dear
And everything must pass

I use an iPod classic. It's not cheap but I've been using it for 3 years and I love it. For me, Apple has one thing down - their music players.

People who go running often use it, because you can clip it and does not weigh much.

Also if you do an extreme sport you dont have to be afraid to break it.

I'm fed up of hearing this. Yes they do, if someone's serious about listening to music, and listens to a lot of it, they'd rather a good mp3 player than waste all the battery on their phone and then end up without a phone. And it makes it easier to listen to music on do something on your phone at the same time.


OP: I'd ordinarily suggest Sony or Cowon, simply because sound quality, but you mentioned looking for cheap, so I'll say go for the Sansa Clip.

Good quality, excellent price to quality ratio, and it supports external sd cards.

Yes and no.

Lack of many music formats, and I don't want to jump the FLAC bandwagon, but Ive had problems with normal formats but higher bitrates (hi def. DAW exports).

I also dislike the fact that you can't drag/drop files. I have music on many external HD's but it all needs to fill up on my storage on computer for it to be on my ipod

Not space issue, but I gpt a system of external Hd's and old internal HD's tagged within groups of a few years back to when I was 11.

If anything what apple has down is it's operating system, and the ipad retina, which for it's specs (both by numbers and realistic performance) did not match up to it's price if you take the "apple standard". Should have cost about 800 bucks not 500.

The reason why I want an mp3 player is that I spent €310 on a ****ing phone with a music player that doesn't work properly.

Other OS, other SD card nothing works.

So the audio quality is good and it supports external sd cards? That sound very tempting.

That seems a tad weird.

What phone is it? If it's Android, there are plenty of music players on the play store. My favourite is n7. You can try that or poweramp.

Then there's something wrong with the phone itself. What exactly is happening?

I find that playing music doesnt drain my phone's battery, I can listen to music for a few solid hours and still go two days without charging it most phones now are pretty good at playing music, I personally dont see the point of having two devices on me, i used to when i had my old nokia and mp4. But now it seems a bit pointless, and my mp4 broke after 4 years so....

Where can I get a smart phone with 80gb storage?


anything that can read sd cards, micro sd cards are pretty cheap now, i got a 32gb one for like £12 i think, maybe less

It's when I haven't properly mixed something, the final export is different from what I hear then when I play it back in my DAW. Definitely some loss in highs and lows. The audible "presence" seems to be different.

Especially guitars through vst get changed, maybe it has to do something with the plugins, really haven't gone all scientific on it or w/e.

It is not that noticeable really, but it's more apparent when it's your own recording and that irks me.

Actually to be honest, it's different at lowest of settings, and haven't really cared about trying out every combination of bit depth and interpolation, and so just went **** it and do max setting mixdown .

I think he means having multiple sd cards. Like that wouldn't be annoying in the slightest..

The music pops occassionally... it is not that big of a problem as they occur much less since I downgraded from android 4.3 to 4.1.2, better battery life too. That makes me suspect it is not a software problem. The guy at the samsung service center didn't even listen to me and factory reset my phone. ''If it is a software bug than it shouldn't re-occur.'', which is bullshit in my opinion.

Nothing I have tried on the phone worked. I also don't feel like giving my phone to a samsung service point. As they scored 30.32 out of 200 according to this site:

http://www.customerservicescoreboard.com/Samsung

Just looking at this makes me feel I spent money on a piece of shit and not even the own manufacturer caring that it doesn't work properly.

So, yeah. If you wanted to help out with the phone problem I would really appreciate it.

no, i mean most, if not all phones can read and use sd cards. sd cards come in different sizes, 8gb,16gb etc. If you want 86gb then buy an 86 gb sd card. I have a 32 gb sd card in my phone because it was cheaper than the bigger ones

I was saying that mine is 32gb

i'm going to suggest a 160GB Ipod classic, even though it can't play .wav's. i've had mine for years (bought it at a pawn shop too, lol). there's enough space to last you awhile and it doesn't have all those other distracting bells and whistles.

Well, I don't think my music collection will ever go over 70 gb. I buy like 2-3 cd's a month on average. I think the sensa clip+ and the iPhone will die before I max out capacity (sensa clip+ with 32/64 gb card)

Silence for a fraction of a second. They tend to happen in groups of pops.

Maybe the source of the problem is your music files? How do you get your music?

Ripped from a cd. and then written on a good working micro sd card (My old phone had no problems playing music).

And the pops do not happen at a certain time in a certain song. They happen at random.

Pretty sure the 160GB Classic does play .wav files. Current one does, anyhoos.

Yeah I used to get this back in the day, and since I had no clue what I was doing I never noticed when I fixed it

It's just the words "DAW export" that sound wrong to me, I dunno why lol
