While it's impressively small, it's also impressive in its sound quality. Couple quality with convenience, and you have a winner. As its name suggests, it has a clip so you can listen to your music hands-free.
It also has some great features. Despite its small size, it has a full suite of controls. With the ability to skip forward and play in 'shuffle' mode, you don't have to listen to songs that you don't particularly feel in the mood for. And you'll get the satisfaction of anticipating whether the next song is one of your favorites. That's the main reason I love shuffle mode; it's fun to try to guess what the next song will be!
In addition to its controls, the Archos Clipper has more features that make it a great MP3 player. It has the ability to playback music in MP3 or WMA file formats, so you can listen to your entire audio library - whether it's music, podcasts, or basically anything!
The Archos Clipper has 2GB of memory which should be enough for around 1,000 songs assuming your music is, on average, 3.5 minutes long per song and saved at 64 kbits/second. But what's even better is its truly epic battery life. You'll be able to listen to your music for about 11 hours, non-stop. This comes in really handy for long flights, camping trips, or extended stays away from a power source.
And don't worry about having to buy batteries. The Archos Clipper comes with an internal rechargeable battery so you won't incur any extra costs after buying the Clipper (which is already super cheap!).
The last great feature that you get with the Archos Clipper is the intuitive drag-and-drop software which simplifies the process of adding music.
The only gripe that I have is with the headphones. Since the Archos Clipper is so cheap, I recommend you take some of the money you save and buy a nice pair of headphones. Not only will the music sound better, but they'll fit your ears a little better and be more comfortable.
All in all, I highly recommend purchasing an Archos Clipper. You can't beat the price, features, slick design, and quality, all bundled into one neat little coin-sized package.
