Product Description

Amazon.com Product Description An ideal choice for those looking to take group jam sessions on the road, the Coby portable MP3 boom box comes with 256 MB of built-in flash memory and an SD card slot for unlimited playback capacity. Measuring only 11 inches long and only 3.3 inches in diameter, the boom box's capsule-like shape makes for an easily portable device. The convenient size and shape of the boom box makes it easy to throw it in a backpack or beach bag, and it even comes with a detachable shoulder strap should you want to carry the device alone. Complete with four built-in speakers powered by four C batteries (included), you'll have enough volume output to party like it's 1999, no matter where you are.

Loading music onto the boom box is simple: All you need to do is connect the boom box to a PC or Mac with the provided USB cable, drag files onto the device, and then you're ready to rock and roll. The boom box also features a digital voice recording mode and real-time MP3 encoding, useful when you want to record directly from other audio devices or live performances. A built-in FM tuner helps you keep tabs on current weather and news updates. To ensure that a variety of playback comes out loudly and optimally clearly, the series of equalizer presets includes normal, classic, rock, jazz, and pop. Other great features include an easy-to-read LCD screen that can display song title and artist information, an alarm clock, mass-storage capabilities, and upgradable firmware. Designed for plug-and-play convenience, the boom box supports Windows 98 SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Mac OS X operating systems.

I was looking for MP3 players for my 3 and 5 year olds. Wiggles and Disney CDs don't have a long lifespan with kids that age.

I wanted them to be fairly kid proof.. no docks, moving parts, headphones, etc.

These were exactly what I was looking for, and the price was right. The kids love them.

If I had to pick on a couple things... the LCD display could have better contrast, and they'd be much better with 512MB.

We had a standard boom box (CD and tape), but it stopped working and we needed a replacement. I initially looked for a boom box that would play MP3 CD-R disks. Besides being very difficult to find and rather expensive for what they did, my wife hated the size and color options. I then decided to find an MP3 player that had speakers (I didn't want to have separate speakers), sleep (so it turned off for the kids) and was easy enough for the wife to set when exiting the room.

I purchased our first COBY MP-C341 on clearance from a local music store. The COBY fit our needs very well. The four integrated speakers sound fine for the volume we need at bed time. It accepts standard SD cards full of music. Comes with an A/C adapter. 1GB cards give us enough room to provide a very good selection of music. The orange carrying strap is removable and the little clock display works nicely in the room.

Some other nice features of this unit are that it can connect up to the computer through a USB cable, record through a microphone or line-in jack AND encode to MP3 and receives FM radio.

After using the COBY in my son's room, my daughter's CD player gave out (it was mechanical and played every night.) I ordered one from Amazon and was happily filling up another SD card with Disney and children's tunes.

About a week later, trouble hit. The player seemed to freeze whenever the play button was pressed. I checked the manual and found nothing describing the condition or possible remedies. Calling COBY, I spoke with a representative fixated on a non-existent reset button. After looking all over the unit and declaring it reset button free, she asked a colleague and had me hook up to a computer and format the internal flash memory. Worked like a charm.

My expectations were low - and it exceeded them. I give this item 4 stars for the idea: an mp3 player that actually has speakers built in, wow! No messing around with external speakers and wires, cradles or seperate sets of silly little AA batteries, etc.

I've been using my MP-C341 to listen to talk-radio podcasts at work for over 6 months now. Using rechargeable NiMH C cells, it lasts an entire shift. It's easy to carry around, and I only need to bring my MMC card back and forth to work with daily podcast updates.

There are some problems. Seeking forward and backward in an mp3 is only about 2 to 3 times faster than normal playing speed. That means, if you push the buttons slightly the wrong way, or the batteries shake loose for an instant, you're listening to a 3-hour podcast from the beginning again. Changing the batteries resets the clock and any customized settings - so don't bother.

I've never tried the FM - that's not what I bought it for, and I've got other radio's that I'm sure do that way better. The mp3 audio quality is surprisingly good though, considering it's compact size and speakers, and I've frightened unsuspecting co-workers with Mark Levin's rantings and ravings.

Unfortunately, it appears that instead of perfecting this product, Coby has discontinued this and it's successor model, MP-C351. That's too bad. With so many brands making so many different shapes and colors of seemingly identical Ipod-like players, and so much technology without a purpose, they could set themselves apart with this unique concept - as obvious and simple as it ought to be.

I'll probably buy another one of these while I still can, unless I can find something else like it - which I haven't found yet.

After wearing out two CD players from playing lullabies continuously, this machine was a godsend, and has the capability of growing up with my little one. No moving parts, I can put the MP3s directly on an SD card or load them into the device's internal memory. When she's older it can be an alarm clock radio or she we grab it and take it with her on a trip to take familiar songs to any hotel room.

Perfect for our needs!

With the low cost of this MP3 "Boombox" item through an alternate Amazon dealer, I was really expecting very little.......but out of the box it did more and easily then I ever expected. I am pretty MP3 savy and this was a mojo simple plug and play. You just drop the songs over the USB and it plays, no trouble at all. The 256 will hold at least a good 1 1/2 hour of play anyway but the best part is that it actually plays pretty dang loud. I was expecting a tiny tin sound but you can hear it playing three rooms away, no problem, no rattle. It has a fairly good base sound and if your files are simple medium bit downloads or rips, the sound is good. The FM radio has a pretty cheap reciever I guess but I didn't buy it for that. If you want something to haul around with you, this is prefect for size and with just 4 c's in it, not much wieght. I will update my review if this "thang" goes bad after a while.
