For me personally I prefer the Creative Zen since its small and perfect to put in my pocket while I jog. I have a plastic case on it to protect it. It doesn't weigh much at all. It's easy for me to switch songs by pressing down on the right or left side of the button while I jog. I tried jogging with an Ipod Clasic in my pocket and that thing is ridiculously huge and it was hard to change songs when I wanted to listen to another song. I would have to whip it out of my pocket while I was jogging and find which button I had to press. The Zen is about the size of a credit card.

Phones are huge and not comfortable for joggers. If you don't jog than I guess a Phone is fine...

Zune. It's simple, straightforward, easy to sync, sturdy, and doesn't have any useless bells and whistles. And there's a really good metal case that I got for it that does a great job protecting it from fall damage. If I ever dropped an iPod touch, I'd be a lot more worried.

I suppose, but I wouldnt mind a phone if I was jogging and I would personally regard music players as a waste of money if you already had a phone. Especially since android supports flac.

I don't own any new phones, I own a Samsung Jukebox that is broken so I can't even listen to music anymore on it. That used to be my mp3 player a long time ago when it wasn't broken. Phone still works, only the part that the headphone jack goes into broke.

My ZuneHD 8GB.

It has a few minor glitches where it freezes or has to restart, but they are seldom, and not really a big deal.

The only other..oddity about it is if you put music on it (you have to use their zune software, but it's not like apples bullshit.) Anyways, if you put 5 new songs on there, and you drag them from your desktop, and sync them up. Unplug it, and look for them.

You will find them where they should be. However, if you then organize those 5 files back into your music folder, the next time you plug in your zune, do stuff, and unplug it, those 5 files will poof. I don't know why but becuase you moved their location on the computer and did not re-sync them (even though it was already unplugged when you moved those files) the zune auto deletes them or something. It is strange and annoying.

My first and still only mp3 player is a Trekstor i.beat emo. Despite the unfortunate name, it gets the job done, and holds a decent amount of songs. It sucks at organization though. Still, not bad for a hand-me-down from a friend, even if the screen is cracked.
Yay for being poor.

Mine is the Rio carbon :- This.

It may be old but it holds a shit load of music and has good volume unlike my phone were everything needs whacking to the max.

It is my husbands really but i use it more than often. Only downfall is that battery needs a good 24hour charge initally if it runs out, or itll drain quickly.

Apple doesn't suck. They're just over priced and overratted.

If you had a 200 gig Zune like I have, you probably wouldn't need two separate devices.

I jog miles a day and have no problem holding a phone, lol. It actually makes it much more convenient since it is in your hand and you can skip a song or check the progress of your run if you are using a running app, so personally I actually find it advantageous to use a phone when I'm running.

Sansa e280 with Rockbox (or whatever it's called) was probably the best and my ultimate favorite so far. Too bad I don't have one anymore, fuckin' thing died on me. Probably had the best organization menu, lagless interface, and features that blew my mind at the time. Price extremely reasonable.

Sansa Fuze+ 16 GB, with a 32 GB MicroSDHC is what I have right now, holds a crapload of songs but organization is too complicated. Interface is very laggy, and touchscreen has some problems responding sometimes. Really good on battery life, and it let's me set my own photo background, add videos etc... Price somewhat reasonable.

iPod Classic (6th Generation, 160 GB) Held the most music, great quality, fast interface, sensible organization, honestly not a terrible price either. Downsides is it's ugly look, and overall clunkiness that makes it less-than-attractive.

iPod Nano (7th Generation, 16 GB) Held a less than palpable amount of music, look and size was MUCH better than that of a classic, interface was lagless (to my experience.) Price a tad bit high.

Honestly I'd like the e280 with rockbox if it could support my 32 GB MicroSDHC, doubt it but it's possible that it may (it did with a 16 GB back then, but that was pure luck at best I believe.) This is if I could have a choice to get a new one, without price being a problem.

I'd give my review on an iPod touch if I actually had one.

Products to avoid: RCA, Samsung, LG.

The Sansa Fuze (Regular) is terrible and hardly works, if you put too much music on it it'll crash, hang, and constantly screw up.

Archos 5 Internet Tablet (16 GB) was probably my favorite tablet of all time, I got one refurbished and it lasted quite longer than I expected it too. Worked with MicroSDHC, and damn 1080p videos looked good on it. (Browser kinda sucked though, and it didn't support later versions of Android.)

Other than that really haven't had much, I'd use my phone but honestly it's crap. Does everything most smartphones do nowadays though.

If your phone runs out of battery that fast then I think you need a new battery

I once had a potato hooked up to speakers and that was able to play music just fine. But it was only able to play music from like Japan or Korea. And that is how I realized that I like Japanese music.

Definitey my iPhone. I hated having to carry around both a phone and an iPod at the same time before.
I could imagine that the best iPod to get for jogging would be the 5th gen iPod Nano. The current version is a crock of shit and it's ugly.
The 5th gen Nano has physical buttons and it looks nice (and a shitty camera, if that matters).
