Samsung Samsung YP-S2 (Pebble)

 

The minimalist Samsung YP-S2 (Pebble) audio player is a fun, inexpensive alternative to the iPod Shuffle. But be prepared to spend some time with its manual: The absence of a screen makes navigating this player's many features tricky.

Advanced features despite simple design ; Unique and wearable design

No screen makes navigation difficult ; Mediocre sound

The Samsung S2 Pebble is fashionable, yet hindered by its tricky controls and mediocre sound quality.

Samsung YP-S2 (Pebble)

 

A stylish, no-frills music player that gives the iPod shuffle a run for it's money.

Wallet-friendly price ; Excellent sound quality ; Simple, attractive design

Lacks a display ; Uncomfortable earbuds

The Samsung YP-S2 held its charge for just over 10 hours of continuous music playback, which is more than enough time for an adrenaline-pumping soundtrack for the gym or for providing a much-needed distraction while taking a lengthy flight. Like the...

Samsung YP-S2

 

The YP-S2, aka the Pebble, won't win any awards for sound quality or battery life, but it's a cheap, gym-friendly iPod shuffle competitor.

Small and lightweight. Cheap. Gym-friendly earphones. Can create playlists on the go.

Earbuds lack bass. Necklace earphone design not for everyone. Cable-free PC connection is awkward.

Awfully similar to Creative's ZEN Stone in looks, price, and performance, the Samsung YP-S2 is an excellent alternative to the iPod shuffle.

Samsung S2 Pebble (1GB, black)

 

MP3 player manufacturers can count on one thing: there will always be a demand for cheap, basic portable music players. These minimally featured devices are often perfect for the gym or brief, day-to-day use. To that end, Samsung is throwing its chip...

The Samsung S2 Pebble is an excellent value: it's inexpensive, sounds great, and offers a sleek and stylish design. It also includes a couple of useful extras, such as an on-the-go playlist and sound effects. The earphone plug design is handy

There's no screen, and operating the Samsung S2 Pebble's extra functions takes some practice

The Samsung S2 Pebble is a simple, cute MP3 player that offers a super affordable price tag, good sound quality, and some compelling extras. It's a great option for those who like to wear their devices pendant style.

Samsung S2 Pebble Review

 

Admittedly I'm not a big fan of MP3 Players without screens since I like to be able to browse what is one my player, but I do see their appeal. Samsung is the third major brand to release a screenless player right after the Shuffle and the Zen Stone....

While there is not much to a screenless MP3 player, the S2 has managed to pull off some advanced features like DNSe sound enhancements and a single on the go playlist. The S2 is not the best bang for the buck, since something with a screen at the same...

Samsung YP-S2 Pebble MP3 Player Review

 

In April we had the chance to go to the Samsung Spring Fever event and check out  some new products being released soon from Samsung. One of the items that struck us as especially unique was the YP-S2 MP3 Player aka the “Pebble.” It was tiny and...

Very women and pre-teen friendly, Easy to use and good sound quality, neat lightshow effects, affordable price

Would truly be an iPod shuffle competitor if it supported iTunes or AAC files

I think Samsung has what could be a very successful MP3 player. It competes with the iPod Shuffle price-wise and it has a great design that will appeal to women and teens. We like that can be worn as a necklace safely and that it also puts on neat a...

Samsung S2 Pebble 1GB

 

Samsung designed the S2 Pebble for fashion first and functionality second (how could it be any explained any other way when it doesn't have a screen?), so it won't be your first choice if you use your MP3 player during sports or work. But it certainly...

Samsung YP-S2 Review- Budget MP3 Player with Better Than Average Features.

 

Say hello to YP-S2 a.k.a "The Pebble" from the Korean tech giant, Samsung

Samsung YP-S2 MP3 Player - HardwareZone.com

 

Light and small as a pebble, which also happened to be its nickname, the Samsung YP-S2 proved to be a portable and auditory pleasure for us.

Consumer review by:

A pretty loyal friend

 

great product. very much worth the buy, and i'll be sad to let it go when it dies *not anytime soon hopefully*!

1. audio quality is great ; 2. it's tiny ; 3. resists scratches pretty well ; 4. survived a 45 minute wash - i didn't check to see if it'd work, but i stuck it in a bag of silica and rice for one and a half weeks. I was so relieved

wish i could have the tracks sorted into albums, mine is a 2GB one and it can get pretty frustrating trying to find something so i have to decide which two or three albums i'll stick in for the week before i change them. a waste of space really
