MP3 and MP4 player review

We test 21 MP3 and MP4 players in the CHOICE labs, including models from Apple, Samsung, Sony and more.

Last updated: 15th November 2012

MP3 and MP4 players have certainly lost traction thanks to all-in-one devices like smartphones, but these dedicated devices aren't museum relics yet.

If you're in the market for a specialised media player, our test will help you find out which models:

  • are the easiest to use
  • offer the best sound and video quality
  • are the most energy efficient
  • are the most durable.

We've included two popular smartphones in our test.
