Top critical review
Skips beginning of most songs.
October 22, 2019
As the manufacturer says repeatedly, "It's just an MP3 player." Well, this MP3 player skips the first second or two of nearly every song, especially when it's a high-bitrate FLAC or OGG file. It's not the end of the world, but come on. An MP3 player should not do this in 2019.
Another problem is that the device never shuts off and will die within a couple of days. This means you have to remember to charge it before using it or keep it charging constantly.
UPDATE: The seller has offered a refund on the condition that I remove this review. This of course violates Amazon's seller agreement and should make you question the number of positive reviews that this seller may have purchased.
UPDATE #2: It's been months since I posted this review yet I am STILL receiving emails from random gmail and hotmail accounts every week offering me increasing amounts of money in exchange for deleting my review. I reported them to Amazon who claims they don't tolerate this practice, yet nothing has happened and the emails keep coming. I regret ever purchasing this thing.
UPDATE #3: After about 30 hours of use, the device is now effectively broken. As i was running today, the Bluetooth audio began dropping out. I pulled the player out of my pocket and then it sounded OK. I put it back in my pocket: dropouts again. It suddenly now has a maximum range of about three feet. If I put my hand over it, it will disconnect. My guess is that its internal Bluetooth antenna has become disconnected.
