If money is not an object, the Cowon Plenue 1 is an extremely high-quality, great-sounding MP3 player, but its relatively high price tag is enough to throw off some people. Other more reasonably priced options include the Sony Walkman and the Apple iPod nano.
Apple's iPod shuffle is ultra-portable, but its basic capabilities often keep buyers leaning more towards the iPod nano. A Pono Player is another option for portable music needs, but it is not as highly rated as the Apple products. Apple's iPod touch is another highly rated player, and its expanded functionality makes it useful for more than just music. In general, Apple seems to have many of the most highly rated music players, as of 2015.
