Looking for a good MP3-player. Help!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I don't have an MP3 player, but lately I've been wanting to get one. My price limit is only up to 35€ and this one is just on the limit. I live in Estonia, so there isn't a big selection available.

Philips GoGear RaGa 2Gb. http://www.philips.com.my/c/mp3-and-mp4-players/gogear-raga-2gb-sa3rga02k_97/prd/ I read some reviews, too, and they seem to tell a lot about its great sound quality and battery life. Once again - what do you think and what do you advise? Doesn't have a microSD card slot.

The specs show that this has 60-18000Hz and I was like wtf, shouldn't it be lower than 60? That makes me a bit worried.

Philips GoGear SoundDot 2Gb: only 19.90€ http://www.usa.philips.com/c/mp3-media-player/gogear-sounddot-2gb-sa4dot02wn_37/prd/en/ Again wtf, 80-18000Hz frequency. Doesn't have a microSD card slot.

Sandisk Sansa Clip+ 2Gb: I have a 8Gb MicroSD already and the price is 34.90€, like the RaGa. http://www.sandisk.com/products/music-video-players/clip-plus/ Has a microSD card slot, which is nice. Just found out this can be rockboxed which makes it sound better / and something else too?
Oh wow, ranked #2 in the category › Portable Source Components.

Cheapest iPod aka iPod Shuffle 2Gb is 47.90€ here so no, that's not an option. I will probably buy some cheapish in-ear headphones to go with them if these coming with the mp3 player aren't good. For example Skullcandy Smokin' Buds.
I have a 8GB microSD card, so getting the Sansa Clip+ seems like a smart move.

And yeah, you can suggest me something other too.

Thanks for all of your answers!

Lots of people use Clips and praise them and no-one would buy either of your other two options for the reason you gave... there's no point us recommending lots of players you can't get anyway.  That and you posted when most Americans are asleep would be why you didn't get any replies instantly.  Also some people look for "no replies" so replying to yourself means they will miss your post.

Going with the Clip+ then... does anyone know if it has good earphones coming with it?

 

EDIT: Nevermind, I am getting the Sennheiser MX370's anyhow.

I got the Clip+ and I am so happy about it. With rockbox it has so much settings and... awesome! This was definitely worth it.
