How to choose an MP3 player ? Compare and find the best.
For many, MP3 players have become something of a dying breed since mobile phones became music playing devices. However, though most phones do play music, they are no substitute for the MP3 player for a real music lover. Furthermore, everyone has problems with the battery life of a mobile and there is nothing that drains the battery more than listening to music (other than video streaming). Having an MP3 player means that you can listen to music on the go with little fear of the battery running out, since these music players have much better battery life than most phones. It also means you can save your phone for when you need it. Additionally, you often don’t want your phone with you, perhaps in the gym or when out running, so an MP3 player can be a great solution.
History of the MP3 player
MP3 players were infact invented in Britain, by the scientist Kane Kramer who invented an audio playback device that lasted one hour in 1979. His model never entered commercial production however and the first real prototype of the modern MP3 player came out in the USA some twenty years later. This model was made by Audible.com, though a similar model was developed in Asia at the same time. These days there are a few major producers of the MP3 player to consider and these early manufactures are been upstaged by newer multinational companies.
