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.

5.0 out of 5 stars the world's best music player just got better 27 Oct 2011
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:8GB|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 27 Dec 2011
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:8GB|Verified Purchase
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Audiobooks 21 Nov 2011
By Dr. TU
Colour Name:Red|Size Name:4GB
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.

Colour Name:Black| Size Name:8GB|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars SanDisk - Not worth the box - It is now! 7 Jan 2012
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:8GB|Verified Purchase
Well thanks to a kind Amazon user responding to my previous damning review I have now unlocked the European volume limiter. This little unit now works fine connected to my hifi. It works really well. The screen is a little small and I havent yet sussed out getting the album covers to show but it is easy to use. For any future potential purchaser that have difficulty with low volume, go to settings, factory reset, pick English, then "rest of the world", this unlocks the ridiculous Euro volume setting.

3.0 out of 5 stars A review for audiobook lovers 2 May 2012
Colour Name:Black| Size Name:4GB|Verified Purchase
I've owned a clip for a few years and now I'm the proud owner of the zip. After trying many different kinds of mp3 players I've found the clip/zip superior for listening to audiobooks.

First and foremost, make sure the player is set to "rest of the world", otherwise you'll hear diddly squat (check out other reviews for more info).

Forget the software - drag and drop is the way to go for a simple life.

DO NOT put your audiobooks in the audiobook folder (in my experience it just comes out as a jumbled mess). What you want to do is create folders in the MUSIC section.

How to do this:

1. Plug in your SanDisk clip zip into your computer

2. Navigate to the music folder

3. Then right click and create folders in the music folder, e.g., one folder might be labelled SCIFI and I'll put all my Stanislaw Lem, Jack Vance and Philip K Dick audiobooks in here. Then I might create a folder labelled HUMOUR and plonk all my Douglas Adams, Robert Rankin and A. Lee Martinez in there. And so on.

4. Once you've filled up your folders with audiobooks of impeccable taste (e.g., no Stephen King, Koontz or self-help books - because these format your zip and brain), unplug your clip from the computer.

5. When the player has refreshed, navigate to the music section and then scroll down to the Folders option. Here you will find all those lovely folders you've created, and all so neatly arranged.

6. Brew a nice cup of tea, whip out your favourite chocolate, grab your smoking pipe, gown slippers and dog, settle down in your rocking chair and then while away your life listening to your favourite book. Aahhh bliss, what more could you ask for eh?
