          only the very first ones had AAA batteries that lasted about 20 hours with the corded in-ear headphones of the time, then the majority of these were coming out with a built in rechargeable battery lasting way more

    I had a sony mp3 player that was thinner and no removable battery. I really liked how you could charge it by plugging it into any USB port, sometimes I would charge it in the car, sometimes I would plug it directly into a phone charger, and sometimes I would charge it with the lab computers where they taught us how to use microsoft word and powerpoint. It seemed almost magical when all that I knew up to that point was replacing rechargable AAA batteries in most of my electronics. Sometimes I appreciate my airpods pro for drowning out ambient rap music that is almost exclusively about sex and drugs, but these music players with simple silicon tips and zero noise canceling reminds me about a simpler chapter of my life.

    god I loved these
    now you can't get one that doesn't have a micro sd card, it sucks I liked the ones that were basically thumb drives you could play music on, when I was a teenager before I owned my own computer I kept my whole life on one of these things, always around my neck on a lanyard it was so choice I do miss those days

      one thing I used to do was deliberately alter the bitrate to squeeze as many mp3s as I could since my headphones were garbage anyways so I couldn't hear anything over like 16kbps

        16kbps? could you even make out what song it was supposed to be, or even that it was music at all?

      Let me break it down for you.

      Hearing the difference now isn't the reason to encode to FLAC. FLAC uses lossless compression, while MP3 is 'lossy'. What this means is that for each year the MP3 sits on your hard drive, it will lose roughly 12kbps, assuming you have SATA - it's about 15kbps on IDE, but only 7kbps on SCSI, due to rotational velocidensity. You don't want to know how much worse it is on CD-ROM or other optical media. I started collecting MP3s in about 2001, and if I try to play any of the tracks I downloaded back then, even the stuff I grabbed at 320kbps, they just sound like crap. The bass is terrible, the midrange...well don't get me started. Some of those albums have degraded down to 32 or even 16kbps. FLAC rips from the same period still sound great, even if they weren't stored correctly, in a cool, dry place. Seriously, stick to FLAC, you may not be able to hear the difference now, but in a year or two, you'll be glad you did.

      Based i had the same model. The later ones started coming with an on board text reader as well. I converted many books from pdf and epub to .txt and read on it. Good times

      Wait I'm not familiar with audio codecs/containers but flac and flac internally store audio as complex16 or complex24?

      • 5 days ago

        flac uses complex16, while on the other hand flac uses complex24 instead.

    the good thing about them is that you could listen to radio and record it
    skipping tracks was slow and if I remember correctly the name of the song came of the file metadata, not the filename and a lot of downloaded mp3 had the title prefixed with bullshit like [musicwebsite.com] and you had wait until the title rolled to read the song name

    I really like this form factor. I wonder if it would be possible to stick an SoC with a cell modem in the case, wire up the screen and buttons to it, and use it as a really simple phone. Maybe you could display texts on the screen, and plug in your headphones to receive calls.

      have fun dropping it and breaking it's hard drive, or needing to find/bring a cable to charge or transfers files to it meanwhile this acted like a flash drive where you could pop the cap off and there's a usb-a male connector, no cable. run out of power on the go? go to literally any shop and buy a (1) AAA battery, easy

        This thing has had had a new beefy battery put in which lasts me about a month without charge. It also has more than a pathetic few megabytes of storage so I can actually out my whole library in it. Also who care about the usb functionality anyway since if you have a music player/phone you're not bringing your laptop/PC with your music on it anyway dumbass. Have fun with your decrepit ewaste that is built like it was hashed together in under 5 picoseconds by a chinese slave boy

          i'm not actually trying to be mean, just being funny
          S1 players and iPods are aimed at different people, while there is certainly a difference in cost, for me, i didn't have a need for a ton of music, but i did bring a flash drive with me all the time, so these provided a way to have both in one device not much bigger than a plain flash drive. the ability to record audio was pretty nice as well, it's not what made me buy it but it came in handy
          the ipod was just overkill for what i needed, and only really good for playing music, like i couldn't use it as a flash drive even, it was big and fragile so i wouldn't want to bring it everywhere, and so on
