Product Description

Amp up your favorite music with the Intel Pocket Concert Audio Player. This compact unit combines Intel performance and intuitive software to deliver big, crystal-clear, skip-proof MP3 playback. It includes 128 MB of built-in memory--for more than two hours of MP3 music encoded at 128 kbps or four hours of WMA audio--and a digital FM tuner with 10 station presets.

The Pocket Concert supports both MP3 and Windows Media Audio (WMA) out of the box, and is firmware-upgradeable to support future digital audio standards. Firmware is the program code within the player that instructs the microprocessor how to interact with the controls and the digital audio files. Upgrading the firmware makes it possible to add new music formats, security protection software, and other operating features that enhance the player.

The player features such functions as equalizer presets, bookmarking, and a large LCD screen that displays title, artist, and track-list information. Jump from track to track, or move forward or backward within a song.

The Pocket Concert comes with software for your desktop PC to help you create, organize, and enjoy your own digital audio library. The Intel Audio Manager quickly and easily transfers audio files from your PC to the Pocket Concert. The Intel Audio Sampler software offers a diverse collection of digital audio files that can be loaded onto your computer. The Plus Version of MusicMatch Jukebox is also included (with upgrade key number), enabling you to rip and encode your personal CD collection for use on the Pocket Concert, as well as to burn CDs with a CD-R drive.

The Pocket Concert is designed for use with alkaline or NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) batteries. The use of other battery types is not recommended and may damage the player or cause risk of overheating. When the USB cable is attached to the computer and portable player, either directly or through the optional Audio Stereo Dock, the player will receive power through the USB connection. This power will operate the player but will not recharge the batteries.

The Intel Pocket Concert Audio Player also comes with a belt clip, neckphones, two AAA alkaline batteries, and a USB cable. With the optional Intel Audio Accessory Kit, you can use rechargeable NiMH batteries, which are charged via an Audio Stereo Dock cradle. The accessory kit includes a car cassette adapter and a carrying case.

Verified Purchase
I am comparing my experiences to my use of the Rio 500 mp3 player, which I recently replaced with the Intel Pocket Concert due to storage constraints.
1) Look/handling: I'm not one for flashy looking things, but the Intel unit is a good size and easy to handle. The belt clip is handy (Rio did not have one) but I do miss having a case for it, which I understand I have to purchase separately from Intel.
2) Plug and Play Ability: The set-up and installation of the unit was flawless. I was listening to the unit as soon as I pulled it out of the box (it comes pre-installed with a few mp3s and a walking tour of the unit). The Intel file transfer software is several thousand times easier to use than Rio's. My one complaint is that you cannot reorder the songs once they are on the unit. I haven't used MusicMatch Jukebox, which came packaged with the player, to upload files to the unit, but for now the Intel software is more than adequate.
3) Sound quality and usage: The volume on the Pocket Concert is incredible. I had problems with the Rio in that I couldn't get it loud enough to hear well over a train or city traffic noise, which is a problem, since I use it to commute to work. The Bass/Treble controls are adequate, although I miss having pre-sets, which the Rio had. The bookmark, random and repeat features are fine. The volume control is at the top of the unit, and separate from the scroll wheel which controls settings; I appreciate having it set up this way. It is much more functional than combining them all on the side of the unit, which Rio did.
4) Storage: I am getting 23-30 songs on the 128 meg internal storage. This is pretty much what I expected, since I was getting 9-13 on the Rio with mp3s encoded at the same rate (128 or 160).

I've been looking for an MP3 player for a while now. I knew I didn't want an MP3/CD player, but I wasn't sure about any other specs after that (Expandable/Non-Expandable, internal batteries,etc.) I stumbled on a review for this one and everything was highly favorable. So, I pre-ordered and patiently waited. It finally came last night, and man, am I glad I waited. This thing is phenomenal! I didn't even have to crack open the instructions. I installed the software, and away I went.
The transfer rate on this is REALLY fast. I mean, you can dump 128 MB in about three minutes. I haven't messed around with the MusicMatch Jukebox yet, but the Intel software is ridiculously easy to use. It reminds me of an ftp program, just drag from one side to the other. Great.
Other features: FM Tuner. This was another feature that I hadn't thought I needed until I read the review. At my gym, they have TVs all over the place, but the sound is channeled to a low-power FM antenna. You need to use your personal stereo to tune to an off station to get the audio from the TV. The equalizer is also a very cool feature. Most personal stereos may have an EQ with a few presets, but the Intel's EQ allows you to tailor your EQ settings to a degree of +/-8. The only thing is that to my knowledge there are no EQ presets. This is something that could probably be added with a firmware upgrade.
How does it sound? Terrific. With one exception. When the Intel is connected to your PC (via USB), there is some hum that is picked up. I'm not sure if that's because the USB also provides a power source and is creating interference. When not connected to the USB, this sounds perfect. As with any MP3 player, the quality of your MP3 files is going to be most important.

Think of every feature you expect in a portable music player: sound quality, features, ease of use, size, weight, construction quality, software support, value. The Intel Pocket Concert (PC) has it all.
Sound quality: Highs and lows are faithfully reproduced through the powerful 11mW amp. Contrary to what everyone has been saying, the included neckphones are fantastic. I've given up earbuds for the first time in my life. Another first for me - the maximum volume on the PC is actually louder than my ears can take. This beats every Sony portable device I've ever owned.
Features: My #1 requirement for any MP3 player is a properly functioning shuffle feature. Some players don't have one, or implement it poorly. I am happy to report that the PC has a great shuffle & repeat feature. ie. It can play all your tracks in random order (without repeating one until they are all heard), and then repeat this process again in a different order. Perfect. The PC also includes a bookmark feature, which is great for saving your "place" in an audio book. Treble and Bass can each be increased or decreased according to your style of music. Let's not forget the inclusion of a fabulous FM tuner with the PC. Note that the reception is increased with the use of headphones, such as the ones included (it uses the headphone cord as an antenna). The PC can remember up to 10 FM channel presets. The PC can also play WMA encoded files, as well as MP3. IMHO, WMA is not a "near CD quality" encoder, and my recommendation is to avoid encoding with WMA. However, if you don't mind low quality WMA sound, save your money and buy a cassette Walkman (which will sound better).
Ease of use: The player has 3 large main buttons (Rewind, Play, Fast Forward). Easy.
