SanDisk Sansa Clip+ 8 GB

This compact, robust and easy-to-use MP3 player is perfect for joggers, skiers, cyclists and more, bringing music wherever you want to go. The Clip+ isn't without fault, but given its budget price tag and handy microSD card slot, you can't really ask for a whole lot more.

Sound quality is very good, and the audio output is worthy of a higher-end device. The only drawback is that the jack's output isn't powerful enough to use with a pair of big, hi-fi-style headphones. Then again, that's not really what this MP3 player is designed for! Stick to lightweight headphones or earphones and it'll work like a dream!
