This player is cool and comes with all loaded features. flipkart service makes it even more cooler.
1. U will never know when was the last time you've charged it.
2. You wouldn't even think sport clip is this important until you've used in this gadget.
3. Load lots of songs and you will be tired of adding your favorites as there is a lot of space.
4. The size of the player is good when compared to others like iball. Loved the white display.
5. U can create playlist, access folder-wise of your favs.
6. Using other headphones than the company ones gives you a much better experience.
7. Comes with an extra accessory, the "Line-in Cable"
An audiophile doesn't like this player much. Quality of bass is compromised to the space i guess [Heard ipod.. of course it is double the price and half the space :P ].
My final verdict is go for this "Pen drive Voice recorder FM MP3 player".
Really Good MP3 Player at this price.
by Vishnu H on 2011-09-17
I've been using this MP3 player from June 2011, and much more impressed with this player. This is the best MP3 Player that you can get in this price range.
After seeing and experiencing this MP3 player, 4 of my friends had told me to order one for each of them, and I've bought one more for my friend too.
My Ratings: (Out of 10)
Audio Processing: 10.0
FM Tuner: 10.0
Headset Quality: 9.5
Folder Navigation: 8.0 (You'll find it difficult at first, but you can master it very soon!)
Audio Recording (MIC & Line-In): 8.0 (Designed for Speech Recording, in 92kbps)
Overall Rating: 9.5/10
This one will be very helpful if you are having a Car-Stereo/Audio Systems with a 3.5mm Aux-In (with a 3.5mm male-to-male connector)
A long term ownership report of the MP330
by Ram Madhav Mohan on 2011-12-04
Hi guys, I wish to share with you my ownership experience with the MP330.
I bought my first MP300 about one and a half years ago.It was on of the best mp3 players I've ever owned.Sound quality was excellent,battery life was amazing and it came with nice features too(which I will come to later). I was very satisfied with the player.I'm not a great fan of those small headphones.So I bought an iball Rocky for use with it.I thought it would drain the battery very quickly but it still gave me very very good playback time.I believe I have some common sense so I'm not going to recommend to you a headset that costs Rs.5000 nor I'm going to compare it with an ipod Nano or a Creative Zen.
But I can guarantee you the sound quality is very good.My first MP330 died recently mainly because of some rough usage.The upper part of the body just came off and it soon died. So I decided to buy another one.
Which one to go for?I was convinced that I don't need to go for the costly ones.A friend of mine has a more expensive Sony NWZ-B16 but both me and him find the MP330's sound quality very much at the same level.And I find the MP330 much more easy to use.I hate that 'twist the ring' next button in the Sony.
So I was left with only 2 options.The Philips Gogear Mix 2GB and the MP330.The Philips badge is something hard to ignore.So I had keen interest in that one also.I read several reviews,checked the specs and came up with the following conclusion(the features comparo I promised early)
Gogear mix will be a better thing to show off.It looks pretty,has a 3 line LCD screen.Other positives include better folder navigation system,slightly better battery backup etc.I saw mixed reviews on the sound quality.
Now about the MP330.I will get a 4GB MP330 for the same price.It has a lot of nice, easy to use features viz. A-B repeat which allows you to repeat a particular section of music(I use it a lot),time-date display(again very useful during the night ;) ),adjustable sleep time,auto shut off etc.Moreover I'm very happy with its sound quality.Then why should I go for the Philips that has a smaller memory and not so attractive feature list.I'm not gonna use up even the 11-12hr playback time of the Transcend.3 line LCD screen and a better folder navigation system are good but it lacks the more important(to me)features the MP330 has.And I'm not so sure about the sound quality either.
So I went for the MP330 once again.Flipkart's delivery times are amazing.I'm happy with the performance of the player so far.The black one I ordered looks pretty too(previously had white).I use it with the Philips SHP1900 headphone(which is v.good)I bought from Flipkart.
This is what I have to say about the MP300.This is not a comparo of the MP3 players.The intention of this review is to inform the potential buyers who are bit doubtful about the Transcend brand about this wonderful,value for money device.There might be better ones.But I can assure you that you will not regret buying this device.
A request to the bunch of people who bash these devices(especially Gogear Mix) for their voice recording capabilities:These devices are not created with voice recording in mind.There are devices created specifically for that purpose(at about the same price range).Please go ahead and buy them if you want and stop misleading the potential buyers because the low ratings that you give will affect the average user rating based on which many people buy things here.
This review will also help you trouble shoot it ... just in case.
by Ravikanth Vijapurapu on 2012-03-27
Flipkart Service: Awesome.... got it in good time...
Product: "For what it's worth" ... excellent.... it has varied features.... listen to songs, record voice and record using line-in cable... fm facilities.... this is an "all mix fruit juice" ... a really tasty one if u ask me :P
Okay.... Now....there is a known issue with this mp3 player....
Usually the player is detected as an ordinary flash drive with a folder 'songs' visible in it. sometimes when one plugs the player in, system displays 'new hardware found' and then detects the mp330 as a 'music player' and one cannot see 'songs' folder. Hence one will not be able to copy songs to it or view them either.... in this case....Just go to settings in the music player. In the MTP option, change it to USB... Problem solved
have to be careful while disconnecting from charge
by Chetan on 2011-10-03
I have experienced this a couple of times. If you shutdown the computer while leaving the mp3 player charging, then the player wont start, it will become hot and won't even start, you have to give some time to completely discharge the battery by itself. If you switch on after a few hours, it gives battery low error, and after you charge and properly remove using remove hardware in windows, it will work again.
Transcend people should solve this problem by bringing out a new firmware.
Very Good Mp3 player but no power adapter in package
by Dhawal Joshi on 2013-04-08
Hi, Transcend has given so many facilities in this mp3 player. Very happy !!
1. Excellent sound quality
2. Good earphones (I mostly play on speakers though)
3. FM recording capability
4. Voice recorder
5. Transcend has provided auxillary cable for using it in car !!
1. It doesnt come with a power adapter. i.e you can charge it only through PC/Laptop USB. If you are traveling and dont have laptop/PC, you will have to buy a USB power adaptor seperatley. This was a big turndown thing, coz a in a youtube video about the same mp3 player the package contained the power adapter. May be in indian version they have not included.
Thats the only con !! Amazing device otherwise :) Removing one star for no adapter.
Good Product But Real bad Servicing by transcend
by Archana Naphade on 2013-01-15
Features are very good but my personal experience with transcend is horrible.
Flipkart service was great as always :)
I bought the mp3 player a year back. It stopped working after a month exactly :|
I gave for replacement since it was under guarantee period and recieved the replacement after a year! thats just a few days back.
And the replaced product too is spoilt one!
I have no other choice but buy another mp3 player now that too after waiting for a year :-/
Total waste of time and money. Dont buy this if you want a long term good service.
by Manoj(Sultan) on 2011-08-26
if u r looking for a cheap and good mp3 player then this is the one for U. it is a very good mp3 player with very good features and descent enough battery life. it has very good mp3 playback and audio quality even with the headphones which come along with it. i would strongly recommend this product... :)
Transcend's Falling standards
by Ajit Nathaniel on 2011-12-08
I own a Transcend 320, and hence decided to buy this one because my experience with the that was awesome. Here is my analysis.
Easy to load music on to
Light and very comfortable to use
The clip is more useful than you can ever imagine
Much slower than the MP320
takes about 30 seconds to start up with half the storage occupied
buttons feel cheap and fragile
designers have wasted a lot of effort trying to add graphics, which are of low quality and subtract from user experience.
if you're purchasing this player just to listen to audiobooks (like I did) this may be the right player for you because once you start, there's little navigation required. However, if you're a music buff and would be switching a lot between songs etc, I would suggest going for something a little more sophisticated.
Best in 2k Range with Good feature set...!!
by Aniket Apte on 2014-03-31
I have been using this MP3 player for more than One n Half year now. Bought it from shop for 2k from retailer. I am bass lover and I used to listen music on my Sony phone with HPM70 Earphones before this. The headphones comes with it are Shit. After some research I bought Sony XB30EX In ear Earphones for 1.5k.
I will directly get to Pros & Cons of this product-
1. Works as Pen-drive.
2. Works fine Connected with Aux cable or Directly in Car Audio players via USB 2.0 slot. Just Plug & Play.
3. Lightweight 25g.
4. Decent Audio output. Tested with Samsung in Ear Earphones (which ships with S4, grand) doesn't felt that good. Samsung ones sound better with Samsung smartphones. Sounds Great with my Sony XB30EX though Also sounds good with Sennheiser ones.
5. Tested with VBR (variable bit rate) songs which worked fine. Has capacity of 32-320kbps.
6. Battery life lasted for 13.5 hrs. with continuous playback when fully charged, with screen saver on and with VBR songs.
7. FM quality is decent, have 87-108 MHz band capacities.
8. Have six equalizer settings with one custom setting.
9. Bass response is good not great (tested with Sony XB30EX & Sennheiser PX80 & CX300-II).
10. Great feature set in this price range like Screen saver, Date and time display, contrast adjustment, Lyrics Sync, Sleep timer, Auto power off, FM Recording, FM Band settings, Rec. Settings etc.
11. The best feature I believe is Play speed in which you can increase or decrease speed of song while playing & External Audio Recording feature with Line In or with build in microphone.
12. Good user-interface and cool small animations while starting & shutting down.
13. There is clip inside USB Cap which holds it tight on USB slot. Cap didn't have loosened up after 1.5 year of usage.
14. Never used recording feature also I don't use FM much so cant say much @ that.
1. Only one custom equalizer setting is a con for me may be not for some people.
2. Symbols on buttons are totally faded. For a new person my mp3 player looks like totally white player with lots of buttons with nothing written on them.
3. If unplugged directly from laptop/Pc it will not start. Then you have to again connect it & remove it safely (Safe to remove hardware function).
4. Takes 18-20 sec. after start-up to be fully operational.
5. Doesn't start easily sometimes have to use lock-unlock button it for couple times while holding play/pause button then starts, if this lock-unlock button trick doesn't work then have to connect it to Pc/laptop.
6. Doesn't give good output with all headphones brands as per my experience. As per my tests works fine with Sony and Sennheiser In the ear & Over the ear headphones.
7. Full battery charging takes approx. 45min. to 1 hr. never checked properly. I think I overcharged it.
After all pros & cons I think this is best MP3 player you can get if you are on budget with decent quality.
Apple, Sony, Phillips MP3 players comes with 2GB in this price bracket with some plus/minuses in feature sets. This comes with 8GB with lesser cost then the competition. If yow want to take most out of this then you will have to buy good quality headphones. No Regrets.
Thanks for your time.
by Ritesh Dubey on 2011-05-18

by Flipkart Customer on 2011-05-26
I looked for a cost effective Mp3 player which I can use while jogging which means the chances of it raining and stuff!, now once I got this MP3 player which was ahead of schedule which is simply awesome by the team at flipkart. The player is simply amazing and comes with all the right accessories. The MP3 is so worth the money
by Navdeep Duhan on 2011-08-02
I have been using this mp3 player for last one month.I am satisfied with its performance,working and fast delivery.Though the sound quality is not top class, it is not that bad either.In short i think it is worth the price.I have found Flipkart a reliable location in purchasing and their delivery also, so far.
by Ranadeep Ghosh on 2011-07-13
It's a very good mp3 player, total value for your money. Got it today, ordered it after my mp5 broke, and I'm not disappointed. Although there's a BIG backdrop, you can't select which songs to play album wise. The engine searches music automatically and creates a list. I'd have preferred a view the folder-view. Anyways. 4/5. You pay the same amount to get a sony 2gb!! walkman!
by Flipkart Customer on 2011-06-09
this mini digital music player has superb price to quality ratio. Sound quality is very good and 4GB at this price !
I liked the black body player and it gives you contentment far beyond the price you pay!
bargain hunting deal and I would recommnd it a strong buy !
Doubles as a pen drive and an excellent mp3 player
by Manik Chand Patnaik on 2011-08-10
It is an excellent mp3 player. The audio quality is awsome.
I got it in right time from flipkart.
The build quality is good. It can record voice and FM quite clear. The position of top buttons is not ideal still it rocks. The selling points are:-
1) very lightweight
2) can double as a pendrive
3) very high quality audio output
4) FM and voice recording
5) folder navigation (a god gift for large collections)
6) universal 3.5 audio socket to fit almost all headgear and amplifier pins
Small,sleek,bright,great look,excellent sound,very good quality
by RAVI PORWAL on 2011-08-10
I am using this mini miracle digital music mp3 player and is superb.its working smooth n properly.
I liked this black n sleek body player and its design,you can clip it or keep in your pocket.
The player is simply simple,amazing and comes with all the right accessories.
The player is very light weight and sound quality is very good,lound and clear.Altogether excellent sound experience.
Sound is fantastic,even it is best with philips or sony headphones.
I am using philips headphones(over the ear phones) and that combination works outstanding.
All features are good and user friendly.Battery also last for 8-9 hours (as of now).
I wish trascend also gives a MEMORY CARD SLOT so that we can add some more songs.
I hope that it should atleast last for 2-3 years.Then you can say full paisa vasool.
I had difficulty to setup customised playlist builder but when i read user manual i understood it how to set your playlist.
One advice to people who already have it or who are planning to buy it,Please read user manual.It gives you lot of info to operate it properly.
Good worth for money,GREAT product at such price and 4GB at this price with transcend trust,awasome.... !
Great bargain deal and I would recommend it a strong buy ! Total value for your money.You can go for it and i hope you will not regret at all.
I am satisfied with its performance. . .:-)):-)):-)):-)):-)):-))
