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.
