    i love basketball but i get really bored after shooting around for an hour or so and i think music would fix that, so i was wondering if anyone had a solution for this. also keep in mind i'm fairly poor and i dont need 80gb. just something small with a way to attach it my arm or something like that.

    ok, the 256mb version is what i had in mind when i made this thread and i've read some not so great reviews, mainly because of the lack of playlist options. so i'll ask you a couple questions and hopefully you check this thread again, 1. does it have an option to play the songs randomly.
    2. do you use the armband or waistband and does it feel bulky
    and 3. how are the headphones it comes with, decent enough sound? and do they stay on when you're moving around? (i know that depends mostly on the shape of your head but i'm just trying to get an idea)

    oops sorry for taking so long to reply :hs:

    1. I dont think mine has a random play mode :hs:

    2. I use the armband - Doesn't feel bulky at all - I forget I have it on at times :big grin:

    3. Mine came with the Flight headphones - They are LOUD!!! :big grin: :bowdown: :coold: - I do believe they offer full ear ones too

    I have a iRiver IFP-190T that I use for the gym and i fucking LOVE it. Very small and takes movement easily as all flash players do. It has great sound quality as well. It was voted the best flash player last year

    Website is in french, or some language that looks like it. Can't find a picture of what their models looks like. :down:

    Just ended up trading in my old flash player for one of the new 8xx series. Only drawback I can see is that I can't use it as a flash drive until a new firmware is released. It comes with an armband though which would come in handy for you active types.
