Customer Reviews

Excellent sound quality and easy to use.

I like this mp3 player because this is using AAA battery, you don't need worry battery is gone and need recharge it.
Hector Shih
The headphones aren't great quality but with a decent pair, the sound is quite good.

I chose this MP3 player due to the price. I knew that there was a chance that it could just stop working, or some weird malfunction may happen, but I did not want to bring my new Ipod on a rugged camping trip. I was truly in for a nice surprise, because not only does this MP3 player work great but it has lasted me for several months already. The sound quality is good, it fits in my pocket, and I actually enjoy taking it around more than my Ipod because of it's simplicity. Overall, sometimes you really don't need all the "jazz" and a simplistic product like this works fine!

I wanted something small & simple (and with at least 4GB of memory) to listen to music at work. This fit the bill and the price was right. The reviews were fairly good as well, so I gave it a shot. I've only had the player a couple days, but I'm very pleased so far. Here's what I've noticed:

The player arrived packaged well; the contents included the player, USB connector, earbud headphones, AAA battery and manual. The player seems sturdy and sleek. Though I can see why another reviewer stated the battery cover was flimsy, I feel it's fine. The buttons are a bit hard to push but I adjusted to it pretty fast. At least they feel sturdy. I did notice that after a little bit of inactivity you will need to hit the button twice - the first time seems to 're-activate' the player. That may be while some people felt they don't work... The buttons from left to right are Mode, Volume down, Volume up, Back, Play/Pause, Forward. The Play/Pause button is also the Off/On button. You have to hold the button for about five seconds to get it to turn on (you'll know it's on once the COBY sign comes up on the screen). Turning it off also takes five seconds and you'll get a little countdown on the player letting you know it's about to turn off.

The LCD display is very SMALL, which I knew from the pictures but they cram a lot of info onto that screen so what's there is tiny! The display lists: Song Number (out of total songs on the player), song length, battery meter, song album & title, song bitrate, play mode, and volume.

I plugged the player into my laptop and it came right up as a flash drive. There is software that comes on the player that you can load and use to transfer files. I ignored that and just used Windows Media Player which worked just fine.

UPDATE 03/01/2013:
Given my disappointment with the unreliable performance of the initially-promising, FLAC-capable SanDisk Sansa Clip+ (reviewed and updated elsewhere), I've purchased several more of these little guys to make sure I have a long-term supply if/when AAA battery-powered, stand-alone music devices completely disappear from the market (as I'm told they one day must). Based upon extensive, long-term listening comparisons, I can confidently state 320 KBPS MP3 files (processed from CDs as described below) sound more balanced top-to-bottom on the MP301 than when replayed on my Apple iPod Shuttle (a result of their different CODECs). The iPod Shuttle is, of course, capable of ALAC playback (ALAC can be easily inter-converted from FLAC), but the little Apple is only presently available with 2GB, a serious limitation when attempting to use lossless files.

ORIGINAL POST:
Disclaimer #1: I use CopyTrans Manager with my several iThings because I believe Apple iTunes is one of the most clumsy and annoying bits of mainstream software in the known Universe.

Disclaimer #2: I'm an ADHD adult who forgets to recharge my iThings often enough to be disappointed by them and myself. Beer, good! Dead internal batteries, bad! (apologies to Camp Chaos)

So, in addition to a small fleet of iThings, I stock a multiple-year supply of Coby MP-301s because they are totally functional, totally affordable, AAA battery powered, and totally expendable.

SOUND QUALITY: I generally purchase CDs (I can wait two or three days for Amazon to deliver them), rip them into lossless WMA files for use with my main sound system, then use "Smart Audio Converter" to translate the WMA files into high-quality 320 KBPS MP3 files.

I loaded this one up with two levels of directories and 1425 WMAs. I just used the normal explorer software to transfer the files from my notebook. Sound is very good for an inexpensive player. I had no trouble using the buttons once I found out that it normally locks after a delay between uses and you have hit a button to unlock the buttons before proceeding. It also takes a little bit to figure out how to use the folder mode. When you enter the folder mode, it does not display the directory tree as the manual says. It displays the title of the last song played. You the have to go up, or down, until you get to a folder icon. The icon is a folder with an up or down arrow in it. At this point, pressing the >= (play) button will bring up the directory tree.

The only real con that I have found is that the display is hard to read because it is so small, however it does have a surprising amount of information on it.

I highly recommend this product.
