Freecom Beatman Flash MP3 Recorder

1. Introduction

Freecom Beatman Flash Recorder 128 Review - Page 1

On January 2004, Freecom announced a new product in the digital media players line. One of these products, the Freecom Beatman Flash Recorder 128 arrived recently in our labs for review. We had already reviewed the Freecom BeatMan 8cm mp3 player in the past, and the results were quite good.

Sizing in at 52.6 x 56.7 x 17.5 mm and with a weight of 44 g, there is always room for the Beatman Flash. This super-compact, silver player provides more than 4 hours* of pure listening pleasure, is shock-resistant and can play either MP3 or WMA files. The in-ear headphones from Sennheiser also supplied with the player guarantee a rich sound quality.

The four-line multi-line graphic display with background lighting provides a complete ID3-tag display with information on the album, song and artist, and all information from the digital equalizer. New music files can easily be copied to the player with the included Digital Audio Manager software and the USB cable supplied. The Beatman Flash can also be used as a dictation device, allowing more than 30 hours of voice recording.
