So I was out walking today listening to my ipod, and realized that my very first mp3 is still useful today. I had sort of a moment realizing that this particular gadget had been in use for years and years now, and shows no sign of becoming obsolete despite the fact that Apple is known planning their devices to become so.

Anyways I was wondering what was other people's first mp3 player, and whether or not they still have it. If so do you use it?

.

Mine is an Ipod nano third gen. I still use it for walking, and it has more or less replaced my car's CD player.

I had a first gen ipod nano. I used it up until about 4 years ago when I got a zune then a few years later my first smart phone. Now I have no need for a dedicated mp3 player.

This exact same nano was my first mp3 player too. Same colour and everything. And I still use it because it's so compact.

same here, in theory I could use my phone while walking, but it's giant in my pocket in comparison to the nano. Also the nano blows away smart phones in terms of battery.

I had a Sony Clie around 2004 that I played MP3's with. My first dedicated MP3 player was a Creative Zen Vision M. Neither of them is in working condition at the moment.

It was a Creative Zen with 60GB of data, bought it in 2005. Couldn't charge it through USB and it had a seperate port for an AC adapter. After my laptop with XP died and I replaced it with a newer one with Vista I couldn't get the computer to install the software for it, meaning no new music. Eventually I got an 80GB Zune, which I still have today but rarely use because I can stream music from my phone with Google Music and Pandora. I used the Zune a lot in Afghanistan while at the gym since I didn't have the same data access there as here in the US.

Forgot what brand it was and I can't find a picture of it. I bought it back in 2006 for $40 or so.

It was a white 1GB MP3 Player that looked like a flash drive.

No, I do not have it.

1st gen iPod shuffle (1GB).

Shit was cash, but I lost it after a couple of months. Think it fell out of a coat pocket.


Don't buy dedicated MP3 players anymore, just buy large mSD cards for my phones.

It was 512mb, so I don't have much use for it.

I'm actually on the market for something decent, no BS - just music. Any recommendations? (Need SD card slot, preferably flac support)

My first one was the original ipod. The very first model they ever released. It does still work, but not if I remove it from a constant power source.

Some device that came stock with EIGHT megs(maybe 16) and had downright horrible design. I'll have to dig it up some day if it's still around and post pictures--it's sort of hilarious.

technically this. I only had one MP3, Sony Walkman Mp3. I dont use mp3s, iPods, or whatever. The only reason I have is for the car, cuz I dont listen to the radio. Had the same mp3 since I was 17 cuz its just for the car and thats it. I dont even own headphones (except the ones for my computer).

Technically I think that's not an mp3 player, it's a cassette player (now do they have any portable 8-track players?).

I don't think i've ever had an mp3 player.

I have a cheap little portable radio thing with headphones (I think they came with a pair of Sketchers).

Can't remember. Always bought the cheap ones and burned through a few over the years. Avoided iPods because iTunes is horrible and my Creative Zen died on me. ;[ Now I just use Spotify on my phone instead of using a mp3 player.
