    Uhm yeah. Because sometimes I’m out snowboarding on a mountain and don’t have service, or it’s too cold out for the phone, or I don’t want to fall on my phone. Or when I’m skateboarding I don’t want to fall on my phone, or when I’m running I don’t want to carry a bulky phone, or the thousands of reasons why I would have a device to listen just to music when I don’t want to use my phone. You guys suck

  • Ramgladore

    I have an MP3 player from Eclipse that looks kind of like an Ipod rip off. Oddly enough, its battery life lasts very long. I'd say at least 6 hours. My phone would run out of power before too long, being that it has other processes that it probably runs. I need my phone to be a phone more than anything. I would rather have s small device dedicated to playing music.

    Why tf would you bring in an M11 and not plug any headphones or iems worth listening into it? It seems like a total waste to even bring it into a lineup like this without, you know, actually showing what it's good for. The shortcircuit video on the M15 shouldn't be so much more informative than a video on the main channel.

    Why didnt they try to sony walkman. Those ones are actually good. You cant buy them from snony you can only by them from amazon from sony Ikr weird. The sony NW-A35 A45 A55 and up. Are all good bang for your buck options. They can take up to 2 terabytes of data physically only 1tb due to there only being a 1 tb card you can purchase on the market today. So i would get one of em that or a hackpod.

  • Burnt Chicken Nugget
    Burnt Chicken Nugget

    1, they are trying to remove the head phone jack. 2. If you drive a lot you realize mobile data cant work. 3. The drivers in MP3s are designed to make audio clear. 4. They are compact and seemless.

  • Amaroq

    Can anyone please appreciate that Linus is playing Tool on the Fiio M5 and M11? He IS a man of culture, I certainly did not expect that.

    The original iPod Shuffle used the same design with the 3.5mm headphone jack that also charges and outputs audio. Can't believe linus never seen that design before lol.

    I actually have a FiiO X3-II. Great capacity with the micro sd, tons of options to fine tune your experience, and it plays pretty much anything under the sun. Plus the audio quality is outstanding. I've heard stuff in songs I've listened to for years that I never noticed before. But they're right about the earbuds. Never go with stock earbuds when getting an mp3 player. They're always there just because.

    "why would i use an mp3 player..." Because I don't want to be tethered to a phone 24/'s actually nice to take a break from the barrage of information, and phone calls, emails and other distractions. Just put on a song and escape... That's why

    Well several reasons really 1. When I fly I can continue to listen music and keep my phone off and in my backpack 2. So you have a smaller device when you go running or at the gym. 3. For when you are cutting the lawn and you prefer a smaller device 4. For better sound quality (depending on a device)

    The Fiio products can play mp3s, but they are made for Hi-Res audio files like WAV and FLAC and because they are uncompressed audio files they take up way more storage. A hi res album can take up 1GB and you would easily fill up your phone storage. So it make more sense to have a separate player.

    Hell yes. I will always prefer to have a dedicated audio device than rely on just my phone. Plus, I work in an industry where customer data security is legally enforced so I'm not allowed to have my phone anywhere near me, so I have to use an MP3 player.

    I like using an MP3 player because it saves battery life and storage on my phone. Also if I drop my £20 MP3 player when getting it out of my pocket it isn't a big deal. My MP3 player is a different AGPTek model and it absolutely fine for daily use and has BT to connect to my car.

    "Why would you ever want a separate device just to play audio". Don't be so short sighted. I realize you are pigmentally challenged and will burst into flames if you go outside.... but some of us go outside with our music. I can get a sanza clip for $30. If it gets broken while I'm running, hiking, fishing, camping... On noez, I'm out $30! Very much unlike my reaction if something happened to my Pixel. I've gone through 4 Sanzas in the last 15 years via various accidents and rain storms. I actually dropped one in the creek and it still worked after it dried out. Something else I like to do is put 60gb of music on it that I know all the words to and then hook it into my car and just let it play forever. That way my text and calls (that I'm not going to answer while I'm driving) don't interrupt my music. It's like the best radio station ever without commercials, I know all the words to all the songs, it doesn't take any space on my phone, I never have to start or stop it, and it works when I don't have signal. Works quite well for me, especially since my car has a line in, but no bluetooth.

  • GoldRaider97 Gaming
    GoldRaider97 Gaming

    Yeah most kids in school can't afford a phone to play music on so they get like a 20 dollar Mp3 player to compensate. I bought an IPod Classic 6th Gen and put Rockbox on it because I like listening to music without the Notification Ring tone. Plus Rockbox is because I hate ITunes. EDIT: I think it's Hilarious walking down the street IPod in hand and getting funny looks while I casually use it.
