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.

A phone is bulky and not light weight. If they were feasible as an mp3 player for everyone, there would be no physical mp3 players and no Sandisk mp3 players and this forum wouldn't exist.

I don't carry it all the time. I have a big 6.5" phone. People use a lightweight player when they are jogging, running and such. Plus a small player is easy to operate with one hand. I listen to podcasts when I drive and I can delete and select another podcast with the clip. Hard to do with a phone and then I have to find the player app, switch to it and it's just not a convenient experience.

I have a Clip Sport and the volume is inaudible even before I reach the minimum setting.
Further to fredtal's suggestion you can also get an inline volume control to use with existing headphones.

I have a separate volume knob which can go with any earbuds. It's a solution for now. I use earbuds not headphones.
