TrekStor Vibez 8GB MP3 Player

 

TrekStor's Vibez media player has several innovative features we really dig; unfortunately, these innovations are undone by a few less desirable traits.

Plays a ton of file formats, and sounds great when doing so

Tiny display, crappy user interface, highly annoying wheel-thingy

We respect the Vibez’s agnostic approach to file-format support, we dig its price tag, and we love the fact that we can add features like an FM radio or video player down the road. It sounds great, too. But its usability failings drive us nuts.

TrekStor vibez 12GB Review

 

If you're in the market for a compact MP3 player, there are quite a number of options available. TrekStor, a German company known for flash drives and MP3 players, has brought another contender to the US market – the TrekStore “vibez”. Despite their...

Great sound quality; plenty of features; mini-USB connector; doubles as a flash drive

No dedicated lock button; poor menu system; scroll wheel feels cheap and inaccurate

Even with the stock headphones, the vibez produced great sounding audio.

TrekStor Vibez Review

 

German storage device company TrekStor hasn't been overly hyped for manufacturing innovative audio players - until they released the Vibez. Coming in sizes of 8 and 12GB and designed by former Rio Audio developers, the Vibez incorporates many features...

Very good audio quality, 5-band parametric EQ, option to save profiles, Gapless playback, crossfade, Supports a large variety of audio codecs, MSC and MTP modes, works on any operating system, File/folder browsing and ID3 browsing, Line-in recording in...

Scroll wheel can be awkward and imprecise to use, Real life playback time is closer to 12 hours than the advertised 20 hours, Hard disk instead of flash memory, Tiny low-res screen, microscopic fonts on some menu points, Low output volume, doesn't work...

Packed with tons of nifty features, superb audio quality, a logical interface, and a virtually bug- free firmware, the Vibez is a great device for the serious listener.TrekStor managed to get it right for almost everyone: MSC vs. MTP mode, file/folder...

TrekStor VibeZ review

 

Of the hard disk players on test, the 12GB Trekstore Vibez has the lowest capacity, yet it costs almost as much as a 30GB iPod. It has a lot to prove.

Using this player is made frustrating by oversensitive controls. While it has some nice features, its performance and quality don't justify the price.

TrekStor - Vibez

 

It seems all audio players are aimed in some way at a member of the iPod product line. TrekStor's Vibez has its eye on the iPod Nano, the music player in Apple's product line which has ...

There aren't many 12GB memory-based audio players under £150. The Trekstor Vibez is a no-nonsense device, designed to play music and live recordings well. It doesn't do video, it doesn't play games, but it does do microphone and line-in recordings,...

Anyone who was familiar with Rio's Karma MP3 player (another one high among audiophile's lists) will notice that the menu system, and in fact almost the entire UI, is just like the Karma's. I think this is great as I just switched from a Karma which...

This is an excellent choice for audiophiles – FLAC support is great and the drag-and-drop transfer is just soooo easy (other manufacturers take note).

I use the VIBEZ for more than 6 months and it is real great. The best sound performance on an MP Player ever heard.

TrekStor vibez 12GB

 

The Trekstor Vibez creamates the Ipod, Zune when it comes to easy setup. All you do is plug it in with a non-proprietory cable and drag and drop. It works on FreeBSD (unix stuff) mac, windows (no sweat) and the best feature its the ONLY mp3 player...
