The best mp3 players under $100 are largely what you get from Apple and Sony. With 2 - 4 GB of memory, these players support several audio formats to play your music in, but might not give you the advantage of expansion slots. However, some of them do boast really long battery life of up to 50 hours and video compatibility too.

Awkward to clip on clothing.

It is a little bit awkward to hold and press with one hand.

Pricey for just 2GB.
