Developed for the more sporty types who like a bit of music while they exercise, the Stormblue R4 has enough about it to be worth a look for anyone in the market for a budget player.
The Stormblue R4 sells itself as the "clippable MP3 player". Not the most exciting of claims, but if you like a soundtrack to your jogging, cycling or machine pounding at the gym, it’s certainly a practical one, especially as it’s just 30 X 60 X 12.5 mm in size, so not much excess to carry round. As a music player, it plays MP3 and WMA files and also features an FM radio. There’s a two line OLED for track and station details, seven equaliser settings and music is transferred via USB from your PC.
The R4 comes with a rechargeable battery, which offers up to 10 hours listening per charge, along with earphones and is available in four sizes – 256MB, 512MB, 1GB and 2GB, with pirces from around £40 – dependent on memory size.
