I have been buying and using Clip+ players for many years. Now that the Clip+ is no longer manufactured and new ones cost more than $150, I am looking for alternatives. I tried the Jam and was disappointed with the fact that its lowest volume setting was too loud for me. I listen to very low volume music when I am reading or working. The Clip+ didn’t have this problem.
There are too many 1 star reviews for the Sandisk Sport and I am concerned it will have the same Jam issue. So unless I pay $150 for a new Clip+, Sandisk players are no longer an option for me.
Any alternatives for a good mp3 player in the same form factor as the Clip+? Small, lightweight and functional. I care about two features. Must be able to bookmark and the lowest volume setting must be very low. The first setting in the Jam was too high.
I use the device also for podcasts and I need to be able to stop, turn off the player and be able to resume at a later time.
