Our collection of the best MP3 players under $80 is defined by a select few models in the range of $60 - $80 that have been highly rated by expert reviewers. Although most of these players have good storage capabilities of 4 to 8 GB with an internal flash drive, the most convenient MP3 players are those that are equipped to play more than the standard MP3 format, to obviate the nuisance of having to convert all your files.
