Should you thought MP3 players went the way in which of the iPod Shuffle, effectively, they principally did. Many (most?) of us retailer their music libraries on their telephones, or skip accumulating music altogether in favor of utilizing streaming companies like Spotify. However there are occasions when a devoted music participant can turn out to be useful, and proper now you will get one for a tune. (Rim shot.)

For a restricted time, and whereas provides final, the Wiwoo 16GB MP3 Player with Bluetooth is just $10.80 with promo code JU9YBPFP. It usually sells for $36.

First issues first: BYO headphones. Though Wiwoo provides a set of wired earbuds, they’re completely horrible. Tinny, uncomfortable, assured to interrupt; toss ’em instantly. Fortunately, the participant itself is ok. I plugged in wired Apple earbuds and later paired some Bluetooth headphones with the participant and located the sound high quality to be excellent total. (That was with some high-bit-rate MP3s; your expertise might fluctuate, after all.)

Along with 16GB of onboard storage, the participant has a microSD slot that may accommodate reminiscence playing cards of as much as 128GB. It helps just about all the main music codecs, and also can play AMV and AVI movies on its 2.4-inch display. (Sizzling take: Do not trouble. You will have a telephone for that.)

The participant has an FM radio as effectively, although utilizing it requires wired headphones — the wire serves as an antenna. Wiwoo even provides an armband for on-the-go listening and an AUX cable for jacking into your automotive radio or residence stereo.

Take be aware, nonetheless, that the participant is not nice at coping with playlists (it’s a must to shoehorn your tunes into considered one of three that come preconfigured on the machine), and it limits your playback choices to both alphabetical order or shuffle-play. Not very best.

However, $11! If all you want is an easy participant to your audio library, they do not come less expensive than this.
