• Hard drive-based MP3 player:

A hard drive-based MP3 player is larger and heavier however. There are also some "micro" hard drive-based players with a capacity that tops out around 12GB. Although smaller/lighter than a regular hard drive-based player their moving parts still make them a poor choice for activity.

• Flash-based MP3 players:

A flash-based MP3 player is an excellent choice for use during exercise/activity. • MP3 CD Players:

WMA formats for instance, allow the user to store nearly twice as much per megabyte but are a less common file type that MP3. If you want to download music from your PC a USB 2.0 standard interface is much faster than USB 1.0. • Other functions and features:

Some flash MP3 players offer a stopwatch function or other fitness related features. Newer MP3 players now offer color screens, photo viewing, and video playback for those who want all the bells and whistles.
