Am I allowed listen to mp3 players during flight?

I heard some regulations were added and one of them banned mp3 players during flight. But I'm not sure and want to check it out. Plz help.

dknol answers:

Mp3 players are okay, just don't play them at an excessive volume! Also, keep in mind that certain portions of the trip, you should have it powered off. Have fun!

Joseph asks…

Is it true that Mp3 players are harder to use compared to apple ipods?

Is it more confusing to download songs on MP3 players? People have told me that they think ipods are easier. And do you know any mp3 players that r about $50 dollars that work really well? I don't care if it doesn't have a touch screen, as long as it's easy to use and affordable/small ( like a shuffle)

dknol answers:

I and others I know have purchased and thrown out other MP3 players. If your budget is low, go with the shuffle.
ITunes is easy with an iPod, a nightmare with another device. It does take some learning to use iTunes more advanced features. Have someone give you a lesson, then explore.

I have my son's old Nano in my car, I walk or run with my 5th gen Nano. I use utility apps and other useful items on iPod touch.

Will not go back to other devices.

dknol answers:

It's the other way around. Ipods are much harder to use. I'm using a Sony E series walkman mp3 player. You just plug it to any PC and transfer songs, no need for itunes. It is also small and handy. And the best part is, the sound quality is next to none. Far better than any Apple product.

William asks…

What is the best music program to use for a variety of MP3 players?

What is the best music program to use for a variety of MP3 players? I have several different types and my wife has still another brand. So what is the best program to use?

dknol answers:

I would suggest either Winamp or Windows Media Player. WMP is more compatible with many mp3 players, but winamp has more functionality. Don't use iTunes, it only likes iPods.

Michael asks…

What is the difference between a walkman and a mp3 player?

I know a walkman is an mp3 player. But why is it called walkman. The reason I ask this is because I was on Best Buy and I looked at the Sony MP3 players and they said -walkman-.
I feel like the word -walkman- is old and out dated for some reason.

dknol answers:

WELL.

The term ‘walkman' was originally colloquial for portable stereos back through the late 70's to the 90's. It's actually a brand name used and owned by Sony. Sony's portable stereos were most well known throughout the industry and amongst consumers so that's why the term ‘walkman' became colloquial. But now, Apple is the most known producer for portable mp3 players, so a lot of people will use the term ‘iPod' instead of ‘mp3 player' or other mp3 player brand names.

Sony still produce mp3 players under the name ‘Walkman' and they still use the same ‘W' logo to promote brand loyalty. There is really little difference sound-wise between Sony's mp3 Walkman and Apple's iPod. In my opinion, it's all just a matter of brand loyalty when it comes to consumers choosing Walkman over iPod (and maybe price :p)
