Your Questions About Mp3 Players

Sharon asks…

What portable MP3 players allow deleting MP3s from the device itself?

I have a Sandisk Sansa e260, and I usually load it up with speeches that I don't need to hear more than once. But there is no way to delete the MP3s that I'm done listening to unless I hook the Sansa up to a computer.

I'd rather just delete the file right there on the device.

Are there any inexpensive MP3 players that can do this?

dknol answers:

I have the e280 which is just the 8GB model of that player and you can delete files directly off of the player. Just play the file, and while it's playing, hit the button that brings up the music playing menu (the one with the 3 lines on it at the bottom of the directional wheel). Scroll down, and you should see an option to delete the current file. Otherwise, any of Sandisk's newer players have the same ability. Check out their Sansa Clip player, it's really inexpensie and a very nice player.

Can you take cd players and mp3 players on an airplane?

I'm going on a trip soon and was wondering if we are allowed to take cd players and mp3 players on an airplane? TSA website did not address this directly as far as I could tell. Anywhere I can call? The airline maybe?

Charles asks…

Why do people think ipods are actually good mp3 players?

They have the absolute worst sound quality, all mp3 players have better sound quality, they have the fewest features, they are years behind all other mp3 players and they cost the most. Every time I let an ipod owner listen to my Creative mp3 player they are blown away by the sound quality, and that is the point of an mp3 player isn't it? The ipod is a fashion article with a bad mp3 player in it. Archos is about 5 years ahead of Apple technologically while Creative has the best sound and is about 3 years ahead of Apple tech. Apple has cheap components in fancy packaging and has the worst customer support in the business. And itunes has low quality files at a premium price.

I don't buy songs from them so I don't really care about the prices!

Personally, I think IPods look nicer than the others – they have a nice, sleek, minimalist look to them and I like the fact there is not a whole list of thing you have to sift through before you hear a song! I've never had a problem with mine and I think the sound quality is great. Nothing beats the sound of music on a good proper stereo anyway :)

You say that “all mp3 players have better sound quality”? I beg to differ – the last mp3 player I had was absolute crap and there are many more terrible ones out there than the IPod so I think that was a bit of an exaggeration ;)
