Creative TravelSound Zen Stone (black) review

 

Creative TravelSound Zen Stone (black)

The Creative TravelSound for Zen Stone is ultracompact and travel-friendly. The speakers get reasonably loud for their size and offer clear audio quality.

Bass response from the TravelSound Zen Stone is typically lacking, and the only power option is battery. The speaker unit doesn't have a dedicated volume, instead depending on those found on the player.

The Creative TravelSound Zen Stone is a fine companion for the pebblelike MP3 player: it fits in your carry-on, runs on battery, and is capable of filling a hotel room with nice, clear music.

Creative Zen Stone MP3 Player

 

You'll find inner peace through frugality when pulling out your Zen Stone next to someone's iPod shuffle. This screen-less, matchbook-sized miniplayer stores a

Small and light with sharp, minimalist design. Available in an assortment of shameless colors (read: no neon green). Handy “skip folder” switch. PC and Mac compatible. Supports non-subscription WMA-DRM tracks and Audible books. LED indicates battery level

10-hour battery life is so not impressive. Supports MP3 and WMA files only

Creative Zen Stone review

 

Creative Zen Stone series

The Creative Zen Stone is an exceptional bargain, and it comes in a choice of six colors. It offers good sound quality, is easy to use, and includes a standard mini-USB port for syncing and charging. It supports Audible files and has a Skip Folder...

The Creative Zen Stone has no screen, no extra features, and no built-in clip like that of the iPod Shuffle. The rated battery life is unimpressive.

The Creative Zen Stone is a fantastic choice as a secondary MP3 player or for first timers on a budget who want a simple, great-sounding device with limited features and a bargain basement price tag.

Creative ZEN Stone

 

This small, cheap player is basically an iPod Shuffle for half the price.

Half the price of iPod shuffle. Small and lightweight. Good sound quality when earbuds are replaced. Simple and easy to operate.

Can't play while connected to PC. Lousy earbuds.

Creative Zen Stone Review

 

This is a review of the Creative Zen Stone Pink 1 GB, a budget MP3 player which is priced very low and offers great sound quality. It falls short when it comes to features but the low price justifies the lack of any advanced features.

Creative Zen Stone Plus Speaker Review

 

The Zen Stone and Stone Plus was successful when first released in terms of price and features- giving them an edge over the iPod Shuffle. Since then the Sansa Clip and the price cut of the Shuffle have given the Stones more noticeable competition, so...

Creative Zen Stone Review and Prices

 

This little 1GB wonder is positioned as a lower-priced alternative to the iPod Shuffle, and by and large, it delivers. Creative's Zen Stone weighs in at just over an ounce and is just slightly larger in size than the Shuffle but serves basically the...

Creative Zen Stone Review

 

Creative dropped the Zen Stone seemingly out of nowhere to compete head-on with the iPod Shuffle, doing so at half the price with more to offer. Creative's screenless player is a very basic offering - only audio playback and data storage. However, the...

Creative ZEN Stone 1GB

 

Creative's latest digital audio player is featherlight and really small. Like the iPod shuffle, it also lacks a display screen but touts a few advantages that easily makes it a must-have, even if you already have an MP3 player.
