Smartphones are becoming smarter as of late and it is beginning to replace some devices on the market, especially mp3 players; however, the SanDisk Clip Jam aims to bring back the lost popularity of the mp3 player back into the hearts and minds of audiophiles everywhere. To start, this device is competitively cheap and it has quite a low price point that justifies enough to let you purchase just for the gym. It is a super light-weight music player that has a built-in clip. Furthermore, it has a display that is of the barebones type that offers a no-frills design. This is great for easy browsing and without having to let you fiddle around with a bunch of menu items just to get to your desired option. It is, however, only available through a wired playing option, so don’t expect to use it with your wireless headphones with it.
The SanDisk Clip Jam Promotes Portability, But no Bluetooth Connectivity
The SanDisk Clip Jam is one of the smaller mp3 players but it is not as sleek and as tiny as that of the very compact iPod Shuffle. However, its price point is indeed a lot cheaper than Apple’s offering. Furthermore, this particular music player has one feature that Apple never had, and that is a microSD card expansion slot. With it, users are able to increase the built-in 8GB of storage to up to 64GB. While it’s no near-infinite library of cloud streaming music, but that’s a whole lot of songs to listen through nonetheless.
What’s great about the SanDisk Clip Jam Music Player is that you no longer have to use a separate program just to place your favorite tracks in it. Unlike the iOS ecosystem of hardware products that relies heavily on iTunes just to transfer files, in SanDisk’s device, all you need is to plug it into your computer and just copy the music files in it. It’s practically that simple.
Other than mp3 files, it also has support for WMA, WAV, and AAC files. However, it does not work with any type of subscription music service, nor will it work with copyright-protected purchases from iTunes that were made prior to the year 2007.
The SanDisk Clip Jam is a great and cheap music player for anyone who doesn’t want to compromise the battery life of their smartphone just to enjoy music. However, without the added Bluetooth or Wi-Fi functionalities, this unit is clearly a victim of the times.
