MP3 and iPod Buying Guide
The following guide will help you run through all the essential steps to consider when buying an mp3 player or iPod.
1. What is an MP3 Player?
An MP3 player is a portable media player that allows you to listen to your favourite tunes and watch movies while on the move, with the iPod being Apple’s most popular product.
2. Storage Capacity
Capacity is an important part of buying an MP3 player, with devices ranging from 1 GB all the way into the hundreds of GBs.
Wondering which iPod you should buy? The iPod Classic has a whopping 160 GB of storage, meaning it can hold up to 40,000 songs.
3. Music Format Type
Being able to import your music files from a computer or other device is central to a good MP3 player, so make sure the device you choose has adequate format support.
The .mp3 format is usually the default for many files, but there are others including .wav, .aac, .FLAC and .wma.
4. Improve your sound quality
Investing in some high-quality headphones is one of the best ways to improve the sound quality of your MP3 player.
While the cheaper options may be better for your budget, it’s best not to scrimp on a set of headphones if you intend to use your player frequently.
5. Other Features
Outside of music playback features, there are a number of additional add-ons that may appeal to you, particularly if you don’t have a smartphone or tablet.
FM and digital radio
Advanced playback options
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth
Extended battery life
