Third Generation MP3 Players With a Whole Lot of Storage
Take your Apple iPod Classic 3rd generation MP3 player with you everywhere for on-demand entertainment. This portable audio player debuted in 2003 with a Touch Wheel feature and four buttons to help you navigate. When it debuted, the 3rd generation models came in 15 to 40 GB hard drive storage capacities.
How Does the Design of the iPod Classic Affect Functionality?
The Touch Wheel helps you scroll faster through your music playlists. Touch-sensitive and LCD backlit buttons are easy to use, whether you're using the device in well-lit areas or environments with low-light conditions. Moreover, the iPod's slim profile and compact size mean you can operate the device with one hand. Slip it into a pocket when you're done. The headphone jack, hold switch, and dock connector are easily accessible so you aren't scrambling to find ports and switches. Furthermore, the device weighs about half a pound to cut down on hand fatigue and cramping.
What Are Key Features You Can Enjoy?
- Battery Life: Apple switched out the lithium polymer battery to a lithium-ion battery. On average, you should get 8 hours of battery life before a recharge.
- Storage: You can keep hundreds to thousands of songs in one place so you'll never run out of music.
- Audio Formats: Along with MP3 formatting, you can use VBR (variable bit rate) and WAV file types for improved sound quality. The digital music player also supports AAC (advanced audio coding) format that takes ups less space than MP3 files.
