Unlike full-size CD players it is portable ; Cheap disks ; Plays MP3 and AAC

Product Specifications

The pocket-sized 8cm eXpanium eXp401 is Philips' exciting, new-generation MP3-CD player. Philips has used 'pocket science' to create a miniature player that's 40% smaller than a standard CD player - but still really big on music. The eXp401 uses cheap and convenient 8cm CDs, which hold a full three hours of tunes (compressed at 128 kbps). Simply Rip it! Burn it! Spin it! to compile and play a whole pocket full of your choice in music.
