Product Specifications

Introducing the HipZip Digital Audio Player. This portable device gives you skip-free, CD-quality sound in a cool, compact design. The HipZip Digital Audio Player offers you solid protection from accidents or spills. And the full metal housing on each PocketZip disk offers an equally durable media. One 40MB PocketZip disk carries over 80 minutes of your favorite music that you can play on your HipZip digital audio player. Move your music from one PocketZip disk to another without any reformatting, and then carry it in your HipZip digital audio player wherever you go. Whether you're in your office or at the football game. PocketZip disks are uniquely serialized, so your player can tell one disk from another. You use your serial number to lock content onto your disk. Also, the Windows Media Player 7 comes with Windows Rights Manager, so your content cannot be opened on an unauthorized disk. The kit contains: HipZip Player, a media wallet for 4 disks, 4-pack of 40 Mb PocketZip disks, Labtec headphones, car cassette adapter and car power adapter.
