Default I have more MP3 players than I need. And I love it.


Taken with an 8MP camera no less... just a very, very crap one, with a very crap photographer and those players all shut down their screens after about 10 secs which didn't help!

Anyway... D2+ 8GB with 8GB Sandisk card, Sony A729 (70 brand new shipped to me in the UK through Argos clearance!) and a Sansa clip 8GB. All of them sound GREAT but the D2 just takes the crown there. Fantastic player. I installed an iPhone style theme just because I could. Still having issues with cover art but otherwise it's a nice player, though the UI is very weird.
I have Sennheiser CX500s. I'd rather spend 150 on a new player than on new headphones... go figure.
So very budget (though very expensive stuff when you're a student!!) but I couldn't be happier just this second.

I don't think 3 is too many....I think 3 is just right. You just need to establish usage patterns for each player. I'm suddenly down to two players, and that's just not acceptable. I need to pick up a new 3rd player

For me I know that 1 isn't enough, 3 is too many, and 2 is spot on.

I sold my Fuze, but kept my Clip....it's so convenient. I think I could be really happy with a D2+, it would round out my collection nicely....just a little too much $$ for me right now.

I have way too many as well, but as I tell my wife, I don't hang out in bars, and I don't cheat on her, so she shouldn't complain.

Just make sure you have fewer mp3 players than your wife has pairs of shoes

I personally have have an S9, Q2, and a clip. I have another dap on the way, and I'm selling a Zune 120. Some on this site have quite a few more players, so it's all about what's best for you actually. For me, 2-4, depending on my mood.

I like my Fuze better than my Clip. I think it would be cool to have a Fuze and a D2+. I could then just pop a card out of the Fuze, into an adapter, then into the D2+ if I felt like it.

Pfff, how's three too many?

I have a Fuze, a D2, and a P2. My P2 is completely broken, and my D2 has a crack in the touchscreen...

I also have 4 pairs of headphones, Senn. CX300, UE Metrofi 150, Shure 1XX (don't rmbr the exact serial number), and a pair of overhead Sony headphones.

Right now, i really want another "upper class" player, like S9 or Zune HD

I'm in high school and I only have the money for one player at a time...I'm jealous when I see you guys with 3+ players and super-awesome headphones....though I guess my setup isn't exactly what one would call crap.

I'm in high school too. I just buy one every year or so with money that I saved up from work

Edit: I meant 4 headphones not 5. I'm sure everyone but has already figured that out...

I'm also in high school and 2 is good for me. 1 for everyday school use, and one for running/workingout.

I just graduated from uni and I'm making 300 euros a month, full time work internship You need to find the good deals (I got my Sony for 70, about two thirds of the normal price) and sometimes please yourself if you can.

I say, the more the better. Though, the more mp3's, the thinner the wallet becomes.

Exactly....Luckily, my wife loves music as much as I do (we met in a gentleman's club, btw), so when I order a new player, she doesn't get too upset.

In fact, of all the players listed in my sig, 2 of them are officially hers; the Zunes. The others are my "toys". I'm sure I have others tucked away in rarely looked drawers, but those listed are my main players at the moment...

I'm so jealous of you guys, I only have a battered 8gb Sansa Clip.
Typically I just spend my cash on a new HD camcorder and THEN I found the Zune HD...need to save up AGAIN!
