Another decent Clip MP3 but awful supplied earphones
31 May 2018
I've bought a fair few of the similar Clip Jam and the previous Clip MP3 players as they do get lost from time to time. Proper MP3 players for those who don't want to use a phone are getting rare, and the clip on the back is very handy if you're a runner like my partner.
This is a bit bigger then the Clip Jam but still small. The main difference, the colour screen, is quite OK for album art though you'd not want to watch a movie on it. The interface is familiar, including the annoying volume restriction! Set your location to rest of world straight after a factory reset, then choose Yes when raising the volume to decent levels. It goes about loud enough, and there's an EQ feature so you can play with the tonal balance to suit most headphones.
Tips: all the EQ presets (rock, jazz etc) are useless - custom gives you 5 bands and that's OK. And the supplied earphones are genuinely awful - SanDisk have been getting worse at this and only the no-brand players are worse in my experience. Do yourself a favour and budget another £10 for some Betron buds or similar - it's so well worth it.
