AGPTEK A50S Music Player Review
This 16GB lossless sound digital MP3 device from AGPTEK is ideal for discerning senior citizens who want a durable MP3 player at an affordable price point. The player can be worn in an armband while doing sports, or attached to clothing with a robust clip.
The overall size of the player is small. This is a good thing for seniors who are active and want a smaller player. But, it can be hard to hold onto if there is any arthritis or hand weakness.
The buttons are flat with no tactile feedback but the arrows on them are easy to see. The play button is recessed and easy to find though. The screen is about 2″ high and is clear and easy to see too.
It comes with 16GB built-in storage and a memory card slot which can accept up to 128GB memory cards. The player can be used with wired or Bluetooth headphones, and the clear, intuitive buttons on the front make it ideal for elderly users who do not want to have to navigate complex menus to control their audio experience.
With up to 30 hours of playback time on a single charge and a charging time of just 1.5 hours, this really is a ‘grab and go’ player. Just load up your favorite music and enjoy.
The player can support MP3, FLAX and other common audio formats, however, it does not support AAC (iTunes) or Audible files directly. Those who are tech-savvy can work around this, however it could be a point of confusion for those who are not experienced with the different types of DRM and different audio library managers that are on the market today.
This music player is best for seniors who are active and need a more sporty model. The overall size is small which means the screen is smaller too. The buttons are flat with no tactile feedback but the arrows on them are very easy to see. The interface is easy to use as well with a bit of practice.
