Hi Everyone;

         I am interested in any direct online purchase link for either a 500MB or 1GB "wireless" mp3 player.  The one I would be interested in will need to be easy to use with respect to navigation between mp3's, easy to turn on/off, easy to hook up or interface with the computer using an older 1.1 USB version or standard, and comfortable to wear.  I also prefer to have one which is water resistant but there may not be any out there like that.

        Any shared input to this question will be greatly appreciated.  I will look forward to reviewing any online links given to this post.

        Thank you.

Water resistant does exist, but seemingly not in the "major" brands' lineups.

The wireless component does not seem to be specific per device, as most wireless headphones use an adapter that goes in the MP3 player's headphone jack.  You would be able to use these with any MP3 player.

Ipods have always been the standard for MP3 players, but for the life of me, I cannot figure out why ... iTunes is a nightmare.  Microsoft's Zune has this beat, hands down, but maybe its just me.  The iPod Nano has very simple controls and a very nice interface and is typically small enough to be worn anywhere.  Being possibly the single-most popular MP3 device, there are also MANY accessories, including cases, for the Nano.  The latest Nano is 8GB, so there is plenty of storage for $130.

All USB 2.0 devices are backwards compatible with previous versions of USB.

         I want to apologize for the lengthy delay in reporting back to this post.  Personally, I wanted to take some time for twofold reasons.  First, I wished to make sure to give others ample time and opportunity to participate in this post as a gesture of fairness.  And, secondly, I decided to use the time away from this question to shop around locally for an MP3 headphone set.

        After looking around, I found a really good deal on a 2GB Slick MP3 Headphone MP3 player which can store between 450 to 680 songs at either near CD quality (128kbps)  or excellent quality (192kbps).  And, the price was certainly attractive as well being at $20.00.  While it is not a wireless mp3 player, I am still content with this deal.

          Thanks again for sharing your input in addition to providing the links to check out.

As long as your MP3 player has a "standard" headphone jack, you should be able to "upgrade" to wireless headphones any time by getting a setup like the one I linked to.

Glad you got what you were looking for.  Good luck!
