Everybody loves spending less for any product. The mp3 players are no exception with basic models available at less than $30 while premium products are sold at above $100. As the price increases so also the number of features present in them. The mid range mp3 players have features such as voice/FM recording, photo viewing, playing videos along with the basic job of music playback.

The top end mp3 players are from Apple, Samsung etc, which delivers all the normal features present in an mp3 player. Plus the extra features such as apps for games, documentation work etc. With good quality WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, these mp3 players allows downloading and sharing of all media files. All the common file formats such as mp3, wma, aac, avi, mov, mpeg4, jpeg, bmp, gif, etc which are used by the music, video and photos are supported by the higher priced mp3 players.

This does not mean that the lower priced mp3 players are not good. There are mp3 players which offer good music quality along with photo and video viewing capability. Having storage of less than 4GB, these mp3 players are ideal for rough use or outdoor activities.

What matters is that the mp3 player should deliver good music with the added perks of viewing video/photos. Depending on your budget and requirements make a selection for the best priced mp3 players from the list of products shown below.

  • The seventh-generation iPod Nano is an incredibly compact portable media player with gym-friendly features, but it's overshadowed by the superior value of Apple's iPod Shuffle and fourth-generation iPod Touch.


  • The 2012 iPod nano 7th generation doesn't have the chops to make the same impact as a new iPod touch or iPhone 5. Its screen isn't great in some respects, it's a bit expensive and it doesn't do all that much. However, it's so much of a joy to use on a day-to-day basis that we can learn to accept most of its limitations. Strong design and Apple's excellent UI are enough to mitigate this partly underwhelming redesign.


  • The seventh-generation iPod Nano is a fine product, but we're not entirely sure who it's for. It comes across like a breeding experiment between an iPod Shuffle and iPod Touch. The kid is cute, but we think most people will be better served by its parents.

    For fitness types, the physical controls, simplicity, clip-on design and AU$55 price of the iPod Shuffle make it seem like the better deal.


  • The Cowon X9 is the latest portable MP3 and video player from the Korean audio brand. However, in some respects it feels like a step back when compared with older models. Its touchscreen is resistive, its display low-res and it doesn't have the storage to justify the bulky design. Cowon needs to get with the times, or it'll soon be game over.


  • The Cowon X9 is available in three variants - 8GB, priced at Rs. 11,999, 16GB at Rs. 13,200 and 32GB priced at Rs. 15,500. Those prices simply do not justify the devices capabilities. With 7-inch tablets available for much less with features such as HDMI out plus full HD video palyback, the Cowon X9 with it's ridiculously high battery capacity and even it's onboard storage doesn't stand a chance.


  • The latest iPod Touch is the best iPod ever, and as close to a phoneless iPhone 5 as you can get -- but its high price makes it a tough call versus cheaper tablets with larger screens.


  • There's a new iPod touch on the block and, in many of the ways that most matter, it's a doozy. While it's tempting to compare it to a phone-less iPhone 5-particularly given its similar height, weight, thickness, and Lightning connector-the iPod touch is a device intended for a different audience. An audience that skews younger than the iPhone's and one that desires a cool media and game player that can stand on its own rather than feel like an iPhone's hobbled sibling. And for this reason, a comparison to the fourth-generation (4G) iPod touch is more apt.


  • When it comes to a device to play music and video, you can't really ask for more than the iPod touch delivers. This is the best screen on any media device of its size, there's decent storage capacity on both models and the graphical power means this can play games that look as impressive as any handheld games console. It's a bit of a clich, but the iPod touch really is a fantastic little gadget.
