Best MP3 Player 2021 – Buyer’s Guide

Despite the rapid rise in our smartphones going from mere calling devices to all-singing, all-dancing all-in-ones, MP3 players are still incredibly popular.

There is a whole host of reasons for this. Maybe your phone is one which just covers the basics and isn’t great at all the fancy stuff. Maybe you have no use for a phone but still want to listen to music. Or you could want to use a dedicated device which will help you listen to music when you’re working out, or on-the-go without risking the safety of your phone.

Whatever the reason, don’t panic – MP3 players are widely available. And they are much more advanced than they were ten years ago too.
