Music creates the soundtrack of your life with songs that speak to every mood, but you aren’t always near a stereo system or indoor speakers. Audio should follow listeners everywhere they go. This means being available at home, in the car and everywhere in between. With help from an MP3 player, it's easy to stay connected to a library of favorite tracks no matter where the day leads.
MP3 players are available in a large variety of storage capacities to suit every user. Determine how much music you'll need to store and choose a capacity that will accommodate favorite songs and playlists. Smaller capacities make it easy to take a few songs to the gym or class. Users who want to keep an extensive music library on hand require an expansive capacity with space for full albums and many playlists. To share music with guests, connect an MP3 player to a portable speaker, dock or radio.
Choosing the right size and design will also enhance use. Ultracompact portable MP3 players are a great choice for tucking into a pocket or clipping on a bag and let users stay connected to music all day long. A larger form factor can be easier to hold and may feature a larger display. When choosing vehicle MP3 players, select a design that complements your vehicle. For public events, enhance your audio capabilities by adding a public address speaker system.
Control options are also a valuable consideration. Touch screens enable simple browsing and operation and generally provide clear, detailed images that let you view artist and track information, as well as video playback and album art. Buttons and scroll wheels are another good option for quickly browsing music. Small models with no display may feature only a few simple buttons that stop and start music and skip between tracks.
