      This little guy is not for everyone. If you don't care about cons, then you will have a hard time finding a better MP3 player. Cons: * No expandable storage. Although 16GB is plenty for me. Not that hard to refresh the whole library every once in a while * Battery life is not great in Bluetooth mode (6-7 hours) * Integrated clip is mostly plastic and will likely break if you are not careful. * Appears to be older Bluetooth version (under v4), which is probably the reason for the issue above. Need confirmation. * A little expensive, considering that you can buy smartphone for the same price. On the other hand it will definitely last 5+ years. * Battery is not replaceable, but I'm sure it can be replaced with some tinkering. * Probably will never work with rockbox * Does not have carrying case. Just use an old case for glasses. Pros: * Drag and drop to add music. No bull**** requiring special software or syncing. * Convenient size. It might seem a little big (1.5" long) but that is the price for ruggedness and screen. * Solid build. Does not feel cheap and built like a tank that will survive anything you throw at it. Plastic cover around screen is curved to handle more pressure. * Has a reasonably sized screen. Low resolution, but you are not buying it to watch videos. * Skip songs with a single button press, even when screen goes off. * Water resistant IPX5. Could be better, but not planning to swim with it. * Decent menu and controls. Had to show my retired mother how to use it only twice, which is quite an achievement ;) * FM radio is a nice bonus. You'll be surprised how many radio stations out there and how fun they can be. * Came with a set of flat cable headphones. Not that good quality but great for a backup. * Has stop watch and timer that can be saved * Latest firmware has Audible (.aax) support There is also a pretty big manual available, which has more info about locking screen and other features.

      I’ve been waiting to submit a review until I’ve had ample time to use this and give you some good info. For starters, I have an I-pod Shuffle that’s about 10+ years old. It’s great, small and perfect for the gym. I’m also old school. However, I wanted to upgrade to wireless headphones and this just wasn’t an option with a shuffle. In fact, not even new ones were an option, only the nano was and I wasn’t ready to spend another $150. I like a music player to listen to music and phones to call people. Besides, my phone is too bulky while working out. So back to why I chose Sandisk. I reviewed this and thought it was worth a try. It’s small, but about twice the size of a shuffle and that’s still quite small. It came with earbuds and I tried them just for giggles and they were garbage, tinny sounding, no bass, worthless. But that’s not why I bought this, I bought the MP3 player strictly because it can link via bluetooth, to a set of quality headphones. I was skeptical at first, especially after hearing how it sounded on the earbuds that it came with. However, it works great. Super easy to download songs, didn’t really need any “manual” to figure it out. Just plug it into computer with supplied cord, it shows up on desktop, and you drag songs into it. However, as some have mentioned, MP4s need to be converted to MP3s. No biggie, I have enough songs of both formats that I just need a couple hundred songs for variety for my workouts and can reformat as needed. Not a deal breaker. The device is super user-friendly. However, I can’t tell whether or not the new wireless headphones or sandisk caused some minor cut-outs in signal from the headphones. Sandisk claims it can “bluetooth” at a range of 30 feet. I clipped this to my waste and during some exercises with bending, I got a short signal cut-out. At first it was annoying, so the verdict is still out on whether the range is real or not, but my goodness, all I need is 2-3 feet from my waste to my head. It could be my headphones though so I can’t complain directly about sandisk. I got a great Deal on sale at Best Buy so this was extra special on the price. I’d recommend this by far as a good option for those wanted to connect to a wireless set.

      not for podcasting

      i've had other sandisk units in the past.: original sandisk clip was cheap and flimsy, broke after 2 months. my fuze lasted at least a few years, i liked it most overall although I hated the disc like controls which eventually wore out. the unit didn't survive a final fatal drop to the floor. my last sandisk clip lasted just over a year, but getting sweat down in the buttons/controls always made it useless, eventually just destroyed it. was very slow too. the battery never lasted long enough before needing charging. i wasn't happy with it. so i went looking and got this one needing something more sweatproof than anything else. but this has turned out to be a mistake for me because of the features lacking vs sandisk's other units. sweatproof? seems adequate. but not entirely because if you plug in earbuds, you have to open and leave the connector flap dangling so that i will someday rip off and get lost. they apparently didn't go with always exposed waterproof/water resistant connectors. i wanted to stick with sandisk mostly because they allow me to just connect my units to any of several pcs i use on the go and download podcasts directly from various web sites to my units. at least this is still a convenience. apparently there is no slot for external memory on this unit. i had to cut my music down a lot to transfer things over from my prior clip. 'podcasts' should be a top-level category itself.. for some reason sandisk continues to bury the podcasts selection down under 'books', even now when you can hide top-level categories. i was completely unaware i was loosing fast playback with this unit. this is a deal breaker for me and i'm going to have to start shopping again. i listen to economic and political podcasts. my listening coverage is down 25% and i'm not able to keep up with my weekly podcasts anymore. overall unit speed is much better than the last sandisk clip unit i had, acceptable. sound is good. wish they provided an elastic armband with clip mount with this, it's better than having to clip to my shirt/belt and relocate it constantly when i work out on different pieces of equipment at the gym. this unit has bluetooth. not tested. i do not currently use bluetooth earbuds.

      Use the provided USB cord. My two units did not fluidly accommodate substitute USB. Bluetooth will not work in FM mode unless the earphone connection, that round 3.5mm thingy, is plugged in. I hook in my earphone/pads and then FM reception is bluetoothed to the receiving device. Use the 3.5mm connector cord in your car if available. Your auto bluetooth may accommodate phones but not necessarily this SanDisk (but, as always, there may be exceptions) The good things about this SanDisk is that it is Bluetooth, lightweight, compact, rechargeable, nice ear buds,and MAC friendly. The not-so-bad things is a relatively shorter battery life, inability to substitute USB cable, requires a 3.5mm connection for FM reception (probably to use the wire for an antenna), appears to be very cheaply made and the controls are not super intuitive. I learned to love the good stuff and work-around the not-so-good. The USB connection issue is between the SanDisk device and any substitute cord/cable -- the SanDisk receiver did not accept the fit of a couple of my attempted substitutes. Addressing the cheapness, I've dropped the SanDisk Mp3 on hard surfaces a few time times and it continues to survive with no issues. The SanDisk is used for Bluetooth with wireless headphones and an Anker SoundCore A3102 speaker (although the SONY SRS-XB2 is superior but way more $$$) so that I am able to listen to downloaded PodCasts when spooling around in my older Jeep Wrangler out sailing the Bristol. I've had my SanDisk for a few months and still learning how to consistently PAIR the Bluetooth without minor frustration but it's great once connection is achieved. Purchased TWO -- one for me and one for Wife who uses hers at the gym. Yeah, for the $$, this gismus is wonderful.

      I specifically got this for running to replace an iPod shuffle. It was the only option with bluetooth for running I could find that would clip onto my running shorts. The pros: - it has bluetooth - it's small and good for running - easy to navigate music folders. just mounts like a hard drive. - good amount of storage - has a screen to see what song is playing, unlike the iPod shuffle - the clip is sturdy and it seems durable, in general The cons: - very cumbersome to make playlists. on a Mac, you have to jump through a bunch of hoops to even make your playlist text file compatible. in short, you must format it to use windows end of line characters. - bluetooth strength was not very strong compared to other bluetooth devices I've had - audible books require authorization via the app and requires a windows pc to use. was almost a deal breaker, but was able to borrow a pc to do this. would have been great to know ahead of time. - the charging cable, which is also required to transfer music is really short. not ideal if you're trying to plug into the back of a computer. and other micro usb cables I had didn't fit because of its narrow opening around the port. - FM radio reception is so poor that it's not even usable. I've read that it's better with headphones, but that defeats the purpose of bluetooth. All in all, this device will work as long as your'e willing to put up with a few of those annoyances. If you want bluetooth, it's also the only device I'm aware of that is a competitor to the shuffle. At the end of the day, I wish I would have spent a little more money and gotten a smart watch, which I will probably end up doing here soon.

      Questionable water restistance

      I've only had this MP3 player since March of 2017. It was an MP3 player, nothing special, and I was relatively satisfied with it. I took it on an airplane trip to NYC in which it had an unfortunate encounter with some water. I understand that it is not water proof and only water resistant, but, disappointed in this nonetheless. Being WAY out of town and on an airplane on top of it when it happened I didn't have access to the old "bowl of rice" trick for electronics which have had a run in with too much moisture. I opened up all of the port plug covers in an attempt to get it as much air as possible. It worked briefly but now it won't turn on and when I plug it into my computer it just says, "FW upgrading - don't unplug". But, it does nothing. When I downloaded the Sandisk MP3 Updater program from their website, it says it can't find an MP3 player connected. I tried any resetting options I could find online but to no avail. I believe it is essentially dead since it doesn't appear that my computer sees it anymore and therefore I can no longer manage the content on it. Of course I didn't buy the extended protection plan because it's 1/3rd of the cost of a brand new MP3 player so it just didn't seem to be worth it. Might be kind of handy right now. I'm still within the manufacturer's warranty coverage period but who wants to deal with shipping it off to them and waiting who knows how long? Not me! Plus no guarantee they would decide to offer coverage anyway.

      For a lightweight bluetooth enabled clip on device under $60 it's not bad. What it misses from it's earlier variants are the microsd card slot. 16GB is a nice size built in but I have a massive mp3 collection (400+ GB) and at some point in this small capacity player the tunes are going to get repetitive. I also noticed the splash proof buttons on the face of the unit are periodically non-responsive. The player boasts a 20+ hour battery life, but while running the bluetooth it is more like 4-5 hours which is adequate for a workout, but not for a full 8 hour work shift. The deal breaker for me in this unit wasn't the storage capacity, it was the bluetooth reception. I paired them with several models of headphones and speakers and with every one of them the range is awful. Most bluetooth devices will allow 30 feet between the two communicating devices...not this one. I noticed drops at 15 feet and complete unpairing at 20 feet. Also, the player must be worn on the same side of the body that the headphone receiver is on because it constantly drops the signal if not. Does not work well inside a pocket or bag either.

      mp3+ Player

      I never loaded music or books onto my SmartPhone because I run my business from it and don't want to run the battery down during business hours. I've wanted a player but didn't want to deal with Apple. The price was right on this item. I picked this player up thinking it would only play mp3. Turns out it will also play mp4, wav, wma, something else, and some book formats that I haven't tried yet. It will connect to bluetooth devices -- headsets or cars or others. It has an FM radio with presets. It has a stopwatch to time whatever you need to time. I can set up playlists, play albums, search for artists or songs or albums -- lotta options. Darned nice sound, too. Not $200 earbuds, but very nice for the price. It's simple to load -- open Windows Explorer and drag/drop the music files. Or, drag/drop an entire album. Simple. What would I do differently? I'd make a model with more storage or with an SD slot. I'd pay more to be able to double or triple the storage. The 16GB internal storage can hold up to 4000 songs, they say. I've loaded about 1700 and have 1.5GB left. I play it on shuffle so by the time something repeats, I won't know -- so 1700 should last awhile. It has easy selection controls on the front, volume controls on the side, a decent display, and a clip on the back. I wouldn't try clipping to my belt (too thick) but it clips nicely to a pocket or sleeve. Nice device!
