What To Take Into Consideration When Buying A Digital Music Player
Check for connectivity features such as USB support, which will make it easier to upload your files to the music player.
File Format Supported
Ensure that your prospective music player is compatible with your preferred file format.
Ease of Use
Check for extras such as detachable clips that will allow you to connect the player in the pockets, backpacks, jackets or sport suits, giving you convenient hands-free music.
If you intend to use the player to listen to music while exercising, it is advisable to pick a design with fitness mode. This fitness mode will allow you to preset, for instance the total exercise time, distance to travel, number of steps, plus amount of calories you wish to burn, and the tracker will alert you when your goal has been accomplished.
The storage capacity is measured in gigabytes and differs from one model to another. A storage capacity of 1GB is adequate for storing 500 songs. It is therefore important to determine beforehand how much of the storage capacity is adequate for you.
