Maybe its in the way that we carry and how we handle them. I clip mine to my belt, and I touch all over it when reaching for it. I have to lock it or it ruins the experience, its a hassle rewinding the long talk files I listen to.


Could be!

I clip my Clip Zip to my shirt pocket.  I got in the habit of buying pocket T-shirts back when I smoked, and still buy them even though I quit smoking years ago.

Yeah I guess it depends to the way we "wear" it. I personally tried to keep it in my pockets cause I didn't want to clip it, but I couldn't. Buttons would get pressed all the time.

Re: lock/unlock player

I keep mine in my pocket.  I'm definitely beginning to regret not getting the older version just because of this.  How could they not implement a lock feature?  It's been standard since MP3 players existed.

No inadvertant keypress issue with the Clip or Clip+; had some with the Clip Zip and so would use the lock function occasionally.

Re: lock/unlock player

Unbelievable!  I was putting up with a bunch of Clip Sport firmware bugs, hoping they'd be fixed, but this is the last straw.  The one thing people still use music players for is music during exercise.  The idea that locking the buttons isn't needed is just nuts. 

 

I guess they thought we needed a "Clip Sport" music player for while we're watching sports, as opposed to playing them.  Makes some sense, like when the TV is muted and has an FM transmitter hooked up to it, but really!

 

This is a hardware defect, because they've repurposed the button's other functions.  You can't touch the Lock button to light up the display, or vice versa.  There's no button they can assign to the locking function.

 

Back to the store it goes!
