I purchased Samsung's recent launch YP-Q3 to listen to music when I go out for a walk in the park.
Q3 has three strengths of 'design', 'sound quality' and 'broad file support'.
When I first saw Q3, I really liked the design. People will have different things to say about the design depending on their personal taste, but I personally like the simple design of Q3 and the striking pink color. The white plastic body and the pink aluminum frame make for a fascinating design. The product is compact, light and easily portable - a perfect match for exercise!
Not only the design, but the sound quality is also very good. The embedded Sound Alive, the new sound field technology, definitely offers a much more sophisticated and commendable sound quality. It's just my personal thought, but Samsung's recent products are receiving good evaluation on their sound field technology. I guess they are highlighting sound quality as their core strength. It might be that I am especially fond of Q3 because I like to control EQ for a more exaggerated and rich sound.
Q3 delivers a sound that has depth, yet clear and sharp. Hmmm.. it's like my ears are full with dynamic sound. In particular, rock music has very lively beat and resonating vocal. The product is also very effective in delivering high pitch. Also, the ear phone that comes with the player is a premium in-ear type headphone, not a cheap giveaway type. The product definitely delivers on Samsung's intention of optimizing for music listening.
'Drag & drop' enables the users to store music files in the player with high ease. You can also store and play videos without having to go through a separate encoding process, which is really convenient. Q3 not only supports MP3, WMA, AAC, OGG, FLAC files but also MP3HD.
Q3 also has good battery efficiency. Assuming that you listen to music 4 hours a day, the battery lasts for about 7~8 days.
Q3 is a low-end product and is good for music listening, but it also supports various other functions. Common functions such as photo, voice recording, FM Radio and texts are also possible. IT also supports multi-tasking like the smartphones these days. However, the screen is too small that it's not quite good to watch videos or read long texts.
Planning to get a mp3p mostly to listen to music? Then, I recommend Q3. After all, there are not that many products that support high quality mp3 such as FALC, MP3HD files!
