Mp3 player - May 26th 2015, 02:24 PM

I want a new iPod/mp3 player. I'm odd and still use them. I have a 4th gen iPod Touch and to put it frankly it's now a piece of crap. It's so unbelievably slow and the battery dies on me so quickly. I just want an mp3 player, no apps or whatever, just an mp3 player.

I WANT an iPod Classic but Apple has discontinued them I'm actually thinking of buying a refurbished one off ebay or something. I want something with a LOT of storage.

I know I could realistically just use my smart phone as an mp3 player but I like keeping my music separate. I also horde music and my iTunes library is huge.

What mp3 player do you recommend? I can't seem to find any non-apple mp3 players (with high capacity) with decent reviews.

I've had my Sony Walkman for about 7 years now and I'm just starting to look for a new one because it's on it's way out. I looked into getting the newest model of the one I have now and I've heard it sucks because they downgraded the software or something. It holds 4 GB though (actually like 3.5) which is enough for me, but I could use a little more, plus it can hold pictures and video too which I don't need, but it does have the FM radio which is nice. The one I have might still be available on Amazon or another Sony would be good. It's the only MP3 player I've had, but sometimes you'll get luckier than you think with an "off" brand which would probably cost less.

I didn't realise just how "out of touch" they are now I get the people's smartphones kind of do it all now but I thought there'd be more people like us who just want something purely for music.

I'll look into the Sony ones now Thanks.

Yeah, I just use my phone now. I'd check out Amazon and Ebay for used ones, the good news is that you can probably get some pretty cheap Mp3 players because of them becoming a bit outdated. Plus side!

I still have a 1st Gen iPod Touch. It's so old people probably think it's some kind of high-tech phone.

I still have my iPod classic and I love it, mainly because of the insane amount of music that I have. My phone just doesn't have the storage capacity for it.

Despite me using it a lot since the day I'd had it, and the fact I've dropped it a fair amount of times, it still works surprisingly well. The battery doesn't hold as much charge as it once did but from full charge it still plays music for about 6-7 hours and on idle with barely any use it lasts around 2 weeks. Using the internet or playing games on it pretty much sucks the battery and I get about half an hour of use before it dies, so I don't bother with it unless I get bored when I'm out somewhere.

It might be old, but it's still gold.

I bought a first gen iPod from eBay a few years back and it is really just a life saver. It's a 128gb (which is still barely enough room for all my jams) but that is the route I would definitely recommend.


it's just a spark, but it's enough to keep me going. and when it's dark out, no one's around, it keeps glowing.

the truth hurts but it hasn't stung enough to stop me.

see, you're just wasted and thinking 'bout the past again, darling, you'll be okay.

You are altogether beautiful, my darling, beautiful in every way. - song of songs 4:7
