Sansa rolls out 8GB version of its tiny 'Clip' MP3 player


I’m rather a fan of Sansa’s tiny ‘Clip’ range of MP3 players. Although their album-on-a-microSD-card concept is idiotic, their MP3 players are very good, and the miniscule Sansa Clip, with a (relatively) massive clip on the back, is one of the best. Good news then – Sansa has just launched an even bigger version, taking the size up to 8GB.

The player supports your regular MP3, WMA and WAV files, and it’ll work happily with music from most DRMed subscription services. It comes with a built-in microphone, and FM radio, and features a dinky-but-very-bright OLED screen. It only weighs 0.9 ounces. If you’re dying to get your hands on one then you can – for just £45. It’s a decent player, with a decent capacity, for a decent price. You can’t go wrong with that.

Splash out on H2O Audio's iSH2 underwater iPod Shuffle case


If you’re a swimmer, then you’ll know what a pain it is when cases that claim to be ‘waterproof’ leak, and your iPod suddenly dies mid-breaststroke. Well, here’s a waterproof case that has won an award for best iPod Shuffle case of the year, and intriguingly, clips to the back of your head.

Makers H2O Audio reckon that it’ll go down to 3.6m deep, and because it’s positioned on the back of your head, it reduces “water drag”. It’ll attach easily to your googles, so it won’t fall off, though what the sound quality is like on the attached headphones when you’re underwater remains to be seen. Oh, and did I mention it costs £60? Pick it up from the H2O Audio website.
