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 Review

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...

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,...
