You know, as time goes by, I have less and less to say about MP3 players. Unless of course, we talk about the iPod nano (if you haven’t heard about it by now, go hide under a rock, you don’t deserve to be behind a computer). This time, however, we won’t. There are plenty of places to go for nano news.
No, instead I bring you a puffy little offering from overpriced hardware vendor Alienware. It’s the extravagantly named “CE > IV”. Flash based, it will come in 512 or 1gig versions and has perhaps two functions that differentiate from everyone else (other than the Alienware brand and ambiguous styling):
First digital audio player in the United States to feature SRS WOW HD™, which provides a treble control for a cleaner crisper listening experience of high frequency sounds. WOW HD also features improved TruBass technology, providing an even richer, more superior bass sound enhancement to digitally compressed music, even through the smallest of ear buds!
It’s also packaged with special Alienware noise-reduction earbuds that filter out unwanted background noise and lets you crank up the music without disrupting those around you.
Price is a jelly-filled humpback turtle dancing the funky chicken.
