Iriver, a Korean based company has been into manufacturing mp3 players since 2000. The range of mp3 players offered by them is comparable to the other leading brands such as Samsung, Cowon, Apple etc.

Design:
For people who are not fussy about how the player looks, Iriver mp3 players are just right, having a durable and practical design. Although the navigation control has a practical feel to it, it lacks the sophistication present in brands such as Apple iPod or Samsung or Creative. The screen size of the best Iriver mp3 players ranging from about 1.8 to 2 inches provides a decent viewing experience.

Storage:
Iriver mp3 players have memory capacities ranging from 2GB to 20GB. USB support and expandable memory allow you to share, copy music/video/photos from your hard drive to the player.

Features:
Iriver mp3 players are mostly into audio but video recording and photo viewing are also thrown in for good measure - to compete with other brands. Most of the Iriver mp3 players support fm tuner with an automatic scanner. An average battery life of around 15 hrs makes it good for listening while on the go.

Pricing:
Competitively priced at $40 to $100 and above, the top selling Iriver mp3 players are for people who listen to music rather than using mp3 players as a video/gaming/networking device.

  • The iRiver S100 is a slim, stylish and well-made media player that's technically future-proofed thanks to its inclusion of DAB support. However, a very patchy interface and real-world DAB performance that's miles away from what you'd get with a home set costing half the price it's not the cutting-edge radio solution we've been hoping for. Not enough has improved since 2005.


  • - We're happy to say that most casual listeners will find the Lplayer's audio performance more than satisfactory, particularly if you upgrade to some decent earphones.
    - It's sensitive and produces excellent recordings, ideal for one-on-one interviews.


  • The iRiver E30 is a long-lasting, portable audio/visual media player released in Asia during late 2009, and later ported to America and Europe. It hosts a lithium-polymer battery designed to handle up to 52 hours of audio or 5 hours of video without needing a recharge.


  • If you are looking for a slender, sleek and well-made MP3 player, the T6 is a good choice as long as you can forego an extensive feature set. For the casual listener or as a backup player, it's perfectly capable, but audiophiles may want to look elsewhere.


  • The iRiver E150 is a mid-range portable media player with a 2.4" TFT LCD display. It features an ergonomic contoured design, SRS WOW HD sound field technology and support for a wide range of audio and video formats.
