Ideal Music Player for Exercising and Commuting

The Sansa Clip Zip was designed with active music listeners in mind. It features a clip design: the back panel of the device closes on a hinge and can firmly fasten to a backpack or article of clothing. This makes it an ideal accessory for joggers, athletes and anyone else who wants to enjoy music while on the move.

The player is light and compact, measuring only 57.15mm tall and weighing less than 16g, so you won't feel encumbered while exercising. And with the player's rechargeable battery that lasts up to 15 hours, you'll rarely have to worry about charging the battery3.

Integrated Stopwatch, FM Radio and More

In addition to playing music, the Sansa Clip Zip can play audiobooks and podcasts and offers several other convenient features. The player is equipped with an FM radio receiver, so you can enjoy your favourite stations while you're on the go. A voice recorder is also included, allowing you to leave spoken reminders for yourself. It even has an integrated stopwatch, which you can use to time your workouts.

Compatible with a Variety of Audio Formats and Services

This versatile player supports a broad range of digital audio formats, including MP3, WMA, secure WMA and FLAC. It is also compatible with AAC, allowing the player to interface with non-DRM files in your iTunes library. You'll be able to enjoy audio from nearly any source -- all while avoiding the nuisance of file compression and conversion.

Full-Colour Screen with Graphical User Interface

The Sansa Clip Zip boasts a backlit, full-colour 1.1-inch screen. The screen renders your album art in vibrant detail and also displays the time and battery life. The player uses a graphical user interface that makes browsing your music collection effortless. Song playback is also easy to control, thanks to an intuitive set of front-panel buttons.

Expandable Memory for a Large Music Library

The Sansa Clip Zip comes with 4GB1 or 8GB1 of onboard memory, offering enough space for hundreds of songs, podcasts and audiobooks. If you need additional space, you can use the player's microSD/microSDHC card slot to expand your player's capacity2.

Short version: Overall, an ideal gift for just about anyone and probably the best music player I have ever used. If you want to spend more money - don't buy another player, just invest in some better headphones and a big micro SDHC card.

Long version (because I love listening to music and can't say enough good things about this gadget):

Pros: So many it is hard to know where to start. Here are some highlights:

1. Unbeatable bang for your buck. (Except maybe if the older clip+ is sold off cheap....).
2. Physically, it's smaller (and lighter?) than a matchbox - great for always having in your pocket or bag. Secure "clip" (of course) so handy for gym, running etc. Jazzy colours are available to put you in a good mood even before you switch on. Decent and bright colour screen to display album art, so easy to see at a glance what you are listening to, which for me was a problem for me with the earlier clip+.
3. Sound quality. This is excellent. In my view, on a level playing field without using their equalizers and on the same 'phones, this player sounds better than any iPod I've listened to and better than my own more expensive Sony S and A series players.("Better" is a subjective thing - so perhaps I should say in my opinion it sounds just as "clean", "detailed", and has enough "umph" and "bottom end" compared to much dearer players).
4. Getting music on it is dead easy by drag-and-drop. No need for special software like iTunes.
5. FM radio with RDS station display. Radio uses the headphone cord as an aerial and works with other `phones.
6. Supports the common music formats, inc mp3, AAC, and FLAC, and for mp3 anyway seems to play "gapless" - nice for listening to concerts without the player inserting silence between tracks.

73 years young, love music, heard of MP3 of course but never used it or imagined just how good it could be. If you wanted to listen to good music when I was a lad it came all packed into three hundredwieght of Honduras Mahogany, and NO! you couldn't take it jogging with you. This Sansa is a wonderful little gadget not difficult to get used to, I can even operate it in the dark now. But the performance! After I reset it to "Rest of world". and bought a set of Reid and Heath earbuds, the quality of sound just blew me away. Simply fabulous. A big thank you to the young Techies and sound engineers who put all this gear together and place it well within reach. Seven star stuff really

Perfect little device. Immensely small but quite sturdy. Perfect for Audiobooks. It took me quite some time of research until I found this perfect solution.

I'll start by saying that I very nearly returned this immediately as completely unfit for purpose: apparently some beancounters in Brussels have decreed that for our own protection, the maximum volume output by any portable audio player sold in Europe must be slightly quieter than a mouse farting. Luckily after a quick Google, I found that circumventing this is a simple matter of changing the player's region from 'Europe' to 'rest of world' (you'll need to do a factory reset and reselect when it prompts you) and voilà; additional volume on tap, up to really ear-splitting levels should you so desire!

I wanted a replacement for a 2nd generation iPod Nano that was never quite the same after getting soaked during the Great North Run. I have a 160GB iPod Classic which pretty much lives hooked up in my car, and a HTC Desire HD w/16GB that I always have on me and onto which I throw a few tunes for when I'm at work or out and about. Neither is particularly portable so I also need a small, sturdy device with the sole purpose of playing tunes in the gym and when running.

Even as a non-Apple person, I must say my old Nano was bloody fantastic. However the new one is way overpriced and the tiny touch screen is infuriatingly fiddly for big man-hands to try and operate when running (I borrowed the missus's once...), so I went for the Sansa Clip Zip.

Three things immediately appealed to me:
- Micro-SD slot to expand memory (put that unused 8GB card out of my phone to use).
- Wide range of format support (Mmmmm.... FLAC ;) )
- Rockbox support coming soon.

I bought this for working out in the gym, basically to cover up the dreadful Radio 1 type music they play. Even at full volume at home I can still clearly listen to the relatively quiet television in my front room AND carry on a conversation. The unit is also much smaller than the 'enlarged' photograph on the Website, meaning the screen is not as clear as I need.

From reading other reviews I discovered that setting it to European sets a volume limit on the headphones. Getting rid of it is a minefield as the suggested master re-boot doesn't work on mine. I managed to do it through a format and then through the menu programmes. Why the threshold is there, or set so low, for the european market is beyond me.

I e-mailed the manufacturers and got a reply the next day:
"Dear Robert,

Thanks for emailing SanDisk Technical Support. It is our goal to make sure you have all the resources you need to get the most from your product.

I understand that the volume level of your Clip Zip is too low. This level is set as a default due to EU regulations on health concerns. For more information and instructions on how to increase the volume, please take a look at the link below:


"Clip Zip
1. Reset the Sansa player to factory settings: Settings > System Settings > Restore
2. Set the region as Rest of World.
3. Change volume setting to High: Settings > System Settings > Volume > High"

If they had put that in the manual I would definitely awarded it 4 stars, possibly 5.

An actual size photograph of the menu screen would have been useful, perhaps with a coin or rule beside it.
