Gadget for listening to music - what do teens use?

Postby slmkhoo » Mon Jun 01, 2015 3:12 pm

My 16yo daughter has been using an MP3 player to listen to downloaded music for the past few years, and it's finally died on her. She doesn't want to put the music on her phone (because of storage space and battery use) but wants a separate gadget. My guess is that MP3s are now out of fashion, so what do other teens use these days if they don't use their phones? Are iPods still popular? We'd like to get her something to replace that MP3. Thanks in advance for suggestions.

Hi slmkhoo,

I personally follow the trend of downloading my music into this app called Spotify.Aside from that,I carry around a wireless headset where I connect it to my computer and download music.

IPods are still in trend to me(hahah).Maybe a IPod Touch works well?

Hope this helps:)

She buys online and downloads to her PC. It's when for travelling etc that she wants something to carry around. I'll ask her to look at iPods and see what she thinks. Thanks!

I use iPod though I am not a teen.
My dd listens to music from her iPhone.

Just looked up the prices of iPods - rather pricey!? Has anyone tried other brands like Sony, Sandisk, Creative etc?

If your hp allows you to install SD card, it's probably much cheaper to add on storage and get a small & portable battery bank.
