Listen to a Music Player not on your Phone

Written under: Entertainment, Technology

By now it’s old news that the iPhone 7 ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack, but if you really want music to sound its best you shouldn’t be using a phone anyway. It’s time to consider a dedicated music player like the Cowon Plenue M2.

The crisp styling and solid build quality are commensurate with the Plenue M2’s $667, ¬£590, AU$1,199 price. The 3.7 inch touchscreen is responsive and menu navigation is straightforward, but I never figured out how to create playlists.


That’s true for most new music players, though. None are as easy to use as my trusty old iPod Classic. Much like how I still like live bands and why I will use my coupon soon too.

With 128GB of internal memory, plus a microSD slot that can add 256GB of storage, the Plenue M2 has room for lots of high-res audio files. The 3,000mAh Li-Polymer battery has enough juice for up to 9 hours of music playtime.

As for connectivity, the 3.5mm headphone jack doubles as an optical digital output. And there’s a Micro-USB port.
