What to look for in cutting-edge technology for MP3 players

There are so many types of MP3 players out on the market today that it can be quite confusing to know what the best brands are for the price. In addition, many of the players come with different features and varying specs on things like the signal-to-noise ratio.

So how do you tell the good from the bad, and then the ugly?

First, consider your needs. What will you mainly use the player for? Listening to music while commuting to work or maybe while out pumping iron or on the treadmill. These factors can make a difference in the type and quality of MP3 player that you should buy.

After you have decided what your needs are, the next step is to consider what type of player is best for you. If you are going to be exercising, you will want a player that is not prone to loosing good sound quality due to excessive vibration

To save money on a player it would help to know how long you plan on listening to music at any given time. For some people this is not a quantifiable thing. For others they may have a pretty good idea. For example, you go to the gym for about forty-five minutes at a time. This is basically the only place that you anticipate using your player, and thus you would want an MP3 player that has enough memory to play enough songs that you won’t be hearing any song more than once. In this case you would want to go with a player that has roughly 32MB in it.

If however, you can’t predict how long you will be listening to your music at any time, then you may want to opt for the 64MB MP3 player. One of the biggest issues when choosing your player is the amount of memory. Just make sure you get enough for what you need.
