Manufacturer's Description

Get into your groove with the eXp2546 MP3-CD players and enjoy 10 hours of skip-free music on one MP3-CD. A classic favourite, it comes with LCD display and is a great choice for easy and hassle-free music enjoyment on the go.

Dynamic Bass Boost maximises your music enjoyment by emphasising the bass content of the music throughout the range of volume settings - from low to high – at the touch of a button. Bottom-end bass frequencies usually get lost when the volume is set at a low level. To counteract this, Dynamic Bass Boost can be switched on to boost bass levels, so you can enjoy consistent sound even when you turn down the volume.

I returned this discman straight away for a refund the day after I bought it.
My main complaint was the poor sound quality. There's a constant russling noise in the background.
Also, the volume level is too limited. It's not as jogproof as it claims to be and also the "stop" button didn't always work, resulting in me pressing the button endlessly to stop the cd playing.
I was very disappointed because I had expected a high quality discman. Don't settle for this rubbish, look further and go for quality.

I've now bought Sony Walkman D-EJ011. I'm very pleased with this Sony one. I feel the D-EJ011 is excellent quality for a reasonable price and would recommend it instead.

OK, I'm into most Phillips equipment, and seeing as my previous CD player was a Phillips EXP2450 (god bless it, it lasted for years) i thought that this would be of a similar quality, concerning audio and build. Now, when i first tried it, I first realized that the build quality wasn't nearly as good, and the morons at Phillips decided to take a step backward in user friendliness right away. In pictures, you see the player as a glossy, sleek piece of machinery; which it isn't. The plastic seems as if it is the cheapest polystyrene they could muster. It scratches easily, has no weight to it; seems as if it would crush, and it generally feels cheap, like the rest of the product. The outstanding design issue, for me, never minding the very light cover, would be the fact that they have put the controls on the front, facing down. This renders the tiny display useless, and the size of the buttons have also taken a hit. The buttons themselves are very cheap and do not press in uniformly. It took me more than enough time just to find simple buttons for changing track and turning the bloody thing off.
Now on to the audio. Forget the stupid ear buds, but i can forgive them this, its a crime that they are included with almost all AV equipment. I am a music lover and an audiophile at heart, although it does not excuse the sound that it makes. First off, even listening on the loudest setting, it is hardly loud, rendering volumes below 28 useless. My old CD player (the aforementioned EXP2450) had only 30 volume settings, but I could never get past 25 comfortably, which is good considering quieter music.
Currently, i am listening to Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge over Troubled Water, which I use as an audio tester seeing as it has low and high volume sections, with variations in pitch very noticable.

Unfortunately this product does not meet my expectations. Only a few first songs I could listen with a pleasure and then disc jummed up every 10 seconds. It wasn't possible to listen all songs without breaks. The same happened with every CD I have put to the player.

Sound quality is okay, but apart from that it is very poor quality product. Keeps reseting the volume each time you put in a disc. Buttons are very small and fiddly and worst of all no 'hold' button. Fat and lacking style, had better from Phillps over a decade ago.

I found it to be very difficult to use, The lid does not lift up to allow good vision of which way the battray fits.
The buttons are very small and not clearly marked. I have not suceeded in playing one disc on it yet. I believe it to be faulty

I bought this CD player through a rival seller - but still returned it just a few days later. As soon as I got it out of the packaging, I was disappointed with the quality; it's very 'plastic'. It takes a moment to read a CD when you first put it in, it makes a racket as it plays, and what clinched it for me was the terrible sound quality - adding the Bass just makes it distorted. Pretty poor all round.

My daughter bought this product from another retailer for my use in hospital. From the first time of playing it would jump to the next track after about 10 seconds on about 4 tracks per disc, suggesting it went into a 'search' mode from time to time. On almost every track there were gaps of a second or two which I initially put down to faulty or dirty discs but realised that the player was at fault as neither these 'skips' nor the propensity to jump to the next track occurred consistently at the same point/s.

She took it back to the retailer for a replacement, which performed perfectly with the single disc that I initially tried. A couple of weeks later found me back in hospital. Within an hour or two of use the replacement was showing the same faults as the original, and more frequently. In addition, the disc frequently failed to start unless removed and re-inserted, sometime two or three attempts being required. The player also emitted a 'rubbing' noise when any of the three faults occurred. None of my discs were 'warped' or physically damaged/distorted in any way.

We obtained a refund which I shall now use to buy a better portable CD player from Amazon...after checking the reviews carefully. I hope I can keep out of hospital until it arrives...or, better still, for a lot longer!
