  • Newman offers Cool Man MP3 player, none of your dignity back

    As if wearable MP3 players we’re dorky enough, the Newman Cool Man takes the cake. You’re apparently supposed to attach this to your German army jacket next to your Obama and Black Flag pin and then wander the streets of Olympia, Washington asking for spare change like our own Matt Hickey. Here’s a press release transmuted from Chinese, but don’t bother trying to figure… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Freestyle Audio 512MB MP3 player

    The FA MP3 player I reviewed way back in August is on sale at Dogfunk for $30. Yeah, it’s only 512MB, but $30 is relatively cheap for a waterproof MP3 player. Read More

  • The Zarva Zippo: windproof mp3 player and 1GB lighter

    Yes, it is in fact both a lighter and an mp3 player. With only 1GB of space, you’ll probably only have enough music on it to cover your cigarette break, but if your cigarettes are an mp3 player too, you’re in better shape. Smoke ’em if you got ’em! Or not, if they’re not real. Read More

  • Attention SLC: Paul Laurence Briggs loves him some child porn on his PMP

    Paul Laurence Briggs is not a smart man or even a man for that matter. This pervert who is a documented sex offender failed to register himself as such in, what I’m assuming is a new town for him, SLC, Utah, but that’s not the worst part. This dumbass left his PMP at a Denny’s where a customer found it and turned it over to the manager who, I’m assuming, took a quick… Read More

  • Zune 2.5: video store and facelift in effect

    Starting right about now, the Zune client and Marketplace are being revamped with major changes as well as some streamlining. You’ve got a social music discovery network, a video store, and believe it or not, achievements for listening to music. Get freaky with more update info and pictures inside. Read More

  • Review: 2GB MP4 player

    [photopress:scaled.IMG_1668.JPG,full,pp_image] China — country of mystery, of intrigue, of wholesale intellectual property theft. Her majestic mountains and sprawling cities inspire us. Her cheap electronics make us puke a little in our mouths. Feast your eyes, friends, on the latest product from her shores: this 2GB, $69 MP3/MP4 player sold by It is utter and total garbage.

  • Sing-a-Song Microphone: make your kid do the work so you can retire early

    Kid toys aren’t really our beat unless it’s something spectacular like Glow Worms or My Little Pony, but the whole American Idol and even Rock Band craze isn’t going away anytime soon, so you might as well groom that little bundle of joy for a career in rock ‘n roll. The Sing-a-Song microphone gets a mention because you can connect your iPod or any MP3 player to it and… Read More

  • Samsung's pebblish YP-S2 MP3 player groped on video

    The ladies at Shiny Shiny got there paws on Samsung’s newest 1GB MP3 players. They’re sort of meh. Shiny Shiny Read More

  • SanDisk officially announces Sansa Fuze

    [photopress:FuzeFamilymicroSDHC8GBcardHiRes.jpg,full,pp_image] Following yesterday’s tiny snafu on Amazon, SanDisk has made official the tiny little Fuze MP3 player. It will be available in shades of pink, red, blue, black and silver. Storage capacity for the Fuze will be 2, 4, and 8GB with prices starting at $80 up to $130. Canada and Europe will get the Fuze in late Spring with the rest… Read More

  • Veiro, a wind-up mp3 player – why not?

    This makes a lot of sense, actually. It wouldn’t work with tape or CD players because they draw too much power and hand-winding wouldn’t last long. But the demands of a small solid-state-based mp3 player with no screen like the Shuffle are less, so apparently a minute of winding gives you 20 minutes of listening time. Not too bad, but in case you don’t feel like exercise… Read More

  • Sony's new Walkmen have Bluetooth, noise cancelling, 16GB

    Sony’s got its new Walkman-branded mp3 players out there, in three major flavors. The model numbers are incomprehensible as usual, so we’ll simplify them: the 710 more compact, with a small 1.8″ screen, and is limited to 8GB. The 720 series is bigger, with a 2.4″ screen, and goes up to 16GB. They both share Sony’s noise cancelling technology, which I was… Read More

  • MP3 player for infants: Just what growing brains need

    Shake the baby — with block-rockin’ beats! The SweetPea3 is an MP3 player with 256MB of memory designed for kids 0 to 8 years old. It is a “robust” music player that is clad in pink or blue “food grade” rubber and lasts about 40 hours on one AA battery. It also comes with music and stories from Susie Tallman and Jim Weiss. I don’t know why you… Read More

  • EyePlay: You put your glasses in and then take them out and it makes music!

    In what may be one of the worst examples of “convergence” ever invented we present the EyePlay, a sunglasses case with built-in speakers. Let’s go over the possible usage scenarios, shall we? You’re on the beach, you want to listen to music. You pull out your EyePlay and your iPod, set them near your head, and turn on the music. It blares out of tinny speakers, mixing… Read More

  • Ibiza Rhapsody quick look

    I have a Haier washing machine. It works really well and it used to fit exactly into a small closet in our previous apartment so we could hide it from the landlords. What I never expected to see, however, is a Haier wireless MP3 player. See, Haier is a Chinese company that is something of a success story. They took an Asian brand and made good-quality home appliances for the US market and did… Read More

  • Banana Zune coming [Updated]

    Holy bonkers! The flash Zune will soon add a 16GB model that’s yellow! Yes, you read that correctly. It’s going to be 16GB of banana-colored goodness. Ok, not really, we’ll see 16GB, but not yellow. I thought the Social was over? You make it you, right? Updated: One of CG’s faithful, Brian R., just sent this in saying he’s seen a yellow Zune in a tv spot: I… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Freestyle Audio 512MB MP3 Player [Update]

    You remember the Freestyle Audio MP3 player, right? Yeah, of course you do. I reviewed it a few months back and now you can pick one up for only $49.99. That’s an awesome deal for a pretty sweet MP3 player. Do it. Do it now. Update: I guess it doesn’t pay to sleep. These suckers sold out in a couple hours.

  • Oakley updates MP3 sunglasses for some reason

    I’ve never actually seen anyone wear Oakley’s MP3 sunglasses in person. I’ve seen athletes wear them and I think Dog the Bounty Hunter wore them, but he’s been taken off the small screen for his racist remarks so he doesn’t count anymore. I think it’s a good idea, but why? Not everyone can pull off these sunglasses because they simply won’t fit your… Read More

  • Samsung MP3 player duo deets updated

    Samsung’s YP-P2 and YP-T10 MP3 players were announced way back when, but now we have pricing and availability (sort of). The P2 features a full 3-inch widescreen touch interface, stereo Bluetooth and gallops along at 30fps. The latest ‘iPod Killer’ comes in 4GB and 8GB flash memory with 35 hours of audio playback and five hours of video playback. The P2 is available in… Read More

  • Spyder Groove backpack review

    Backpacks are like shoes, you can never have too many of them. At least that’s my logic. Backpacks are one of those things that I always seem to keep buying not matter how many I have. But this time around I decided to pick up one that offered something special. There are a number of MP3 player specific bags with built-in speakers, but I’ve found that most of them sound like garbage. Read More

  • Creative Zen Review

    Creative’s Zen line of media players hasn’t stolen much thunder from the iPod, but it has been more successful than many. The latest, dubbed simply the Creative Zen, is a flash-based player that does video on a 2.5-inch screen and rocks a full-size SD card slot. It’s not bad-looking, and it resembles the Zen Vision in many of the right ways. But its boatload of features… Read More
