If you’re the type of person who looks at the iPod Shuffle and thinks to yourself “it’s nice and all, but can’t they make it smaller?” then it’s pretty clear your standards are just too damn high. But thankfully you don’t seem to be alone, lest this Micro Sport Japanese MP3 Player from ThinkGeek wouldn’t exist. According to them it’s only about the size of 2 sugar cubes, but includes 4GB of storage, external control buttons and a rechargeable battery. And since there’s no display, its battery life is probably half-decent.
Using the ear-piece player alone you’ll enjoy all the glory of mono sound, but you stereo audiophiles can attach an additional earbud for the other side of your head which connects to the player with a short cable. The downside of course is that you’re forced to use the earbuds the player comes with, which is never a good idea, but if size > sound quality in your mind, you’ve just found a way to rid yourself of $79.99.
