Looking for deal on mp3 player with speaker

house kitten 6,899 November 15, 2015 at 06:27 AM
My sister is looking for an inexpensive mp3 player to leave in her office at work (company music does not reach her office). She asked for an ipod but I am discouraging that (they grow legs). is there a cheap alternative? Looking for something that comes with built in speaker so I do not need to purchase separate speaker. Ideas??

Oh and no she doesn't use a smartphone so that is out.

There are plenty of cheap mp3s out there. Sansa makes decent ones but you literally can grab anything for this and be good in most situations. As to speakers, why wouldn't she just get a pair of headphones?

Headphones would not work in this situation.

Most likely you will need to hookup an external speaker of sorts then. That can be done through PC speakers if she has a PC in the office. Otherwise, you are looking at some sort of docking station\portable setup for the speakers (just search for mp3 speakers online). To be honest though, most portable speakers are trash and offer terrible sound fidelity. You have to spend some money ($100+) to get a decent set. Depends on how much of an audiophile the person is but you do end up getting what you pay for on the speaker front imo. Some people of course can not tell the difference between crummy speakers and good ones but that is another matter. Of course if you spend for a decent pair of speakers, then they will have a tendency to walk as well. Which is why a decent pair of headphones that can be put in your pocket is a better option in most circumstances.
