The Mini Yepp has superb sound with a four-preset graphic equalizer and a powerful bass boost system that can enhance any musical style. The Mini Yepp also features an advanced USB port for high-speed transfer of your favorite music. USB connections are three to five times faster than those using the parallel port, and allow compatibility with both the Macintosh and PCs running Windows 98, 2000, or Me.
The popular Rio-Port digital music software is bundled with the Mini Yepp, offering a powerful yet easy-to-use system to organize your entire music collection and quickly transfer custom track combinations. The software is also CDDB-enabled, automatically retrieving artist and track information for millions of CDs (when connected to the Internet).
It comes bundled with full-length audio tracks from top recording artists, including Samantha Mumba, Monster Magnet, Blues Traveler, Queens of the Stone Age, and Black Eyed Peas.
The Samsung Mini Yepp runs on one AAA battery. It is backed by a one-year warranty.

While it only supports the mp3 format (no proprietary formats like wma or atrac3), it seems to support a range of bitrates (I've tried 64kbps - 256kbps) as well as vbr-encoded files (I prefer these high-compression variable bitrate files for their small size).
The sound quality is remarkably adequate, especially for a player that's small enough to lose with your pocket change (hasn't happened to me just yet, thank goodness), and its built-in equalizer adds enough "oomph," although you're not going to see any audiophiles raving about it anytime soon.
The biggest drawback with the Mini-Yepp is its short battery life. The fact that this unit is so small that it uses a single AAA battery should be a clue. I'd say I've been averaging about 2.5 hours of active use per battery, although I'm in the process of gauging NiMH rechargeables in this unit. I'd suspect using alkalines to support your mp3 habit on the Mini-Yepp may turn out to be a costly experience.
Another almost equally annoying feature of this unit is its miniscule memory capacity. At 128kbps (or 55% vbr in Musicmatch, although I've had to do some mp3 tag repair with these files before I could use them - something to do with Freuhaufer and Xing encoder/decoder compatibility issues), you're going to pack about a half-hour into this unit. And it's fine if you're going to use the Mini-Yepp as a workout companion (which I do), and if you work out about 30 minutes at a time (which I also do).Read more ›
There are only two drawbacks:
1- It really goes thru batteries quick, but I have a battery charger so that's not really an issue.
2- The headphones included with the set are not the best quality, so I'm using the ones from my old walkman.
If not for those things, i would give this product a 5 stars rating.
-Very small, about the size of an egg.
-Light enough (1.13oz) to run with without having it bounce around in your pocket.
-Like all MP3 players, it won't skip, shaken or stirred.
-Non-expandable or upgradeable; only plays MP3s.
-Cumbersome computer software.
-Only three buttons on player; basic functions like volume, turning off, and EQ switching takes some getting use to.
OVERALL: Well worth the cost, and a great player to begin with. The 32MB model can hold about 6-8 songs, but if you are looking for more memory, try the 64MB model, which is obviously a bit more expensive. The only real downside to the Mini-Yepp is that its memory cannot be expanded or its software upgraded. All in all, I would highly recommend this player.

This is a great product. DO NOT buy the Nike or Rio MP3 players. They are horrible. The comments about battery life are valid. Read morePublished on December 3, 2003

It is a nice product with no way of carrying except in you pocket. Not good for someone who wants to use it to run and work out with.Published on December 10, 2002
First no off switch - that really bugs me. I know it turns off but never seems to.
Second battery life -there is none. Read more
This is a GREAT little thing.
The 32MB can be overcome. What i did was use mp3PRO files, which are half the file size. Read more
I love my mini-yepp. I managed to record 17 mp3's at 64kbs with decent sound quality. You people whine too much about batteries and lack of memory. You get what you pay for.Published on June 22, 2002
