JetAudio iAudio U2 (1GB,
folks at JetAudio have a bona fide hit on their hands with the
tiny and sleek iAudio U2. While its flash-memory predecessor,
the iAudio 4, was a little dull in the looks department, the U2
boasts stylish and elegant looks, an FM radio, line-in and
built-in mic recording, and--if you can afford it--as much as
1GB of memory. While we wish the U2 had more recording options,
we heartily recommend this small wonder for music lovers who
want their tunes in a teeny, tiny package.
Excellent sound quality; small and light;
eye-catching looks; FM, line-in, and built-in mic
recording; equalizer and several sound effects; USB 2.0
support; no drivers necessary in Windows XP or Mac OS X.
Limited recording options; average
battery life; pricey.
What's it for:
Listening to MP3, WMA, OGG, ASF, and WAV
files; storing data files; recording audio and FM radio.
Who's it for:
On-the-go music lovers; anyone who needs
to record a concert or an FM radio broadcast.
Recording a speech or an interview; data
storage and transfer.
The bottom line:
The stylish, flash-memory iAudio U2 crams
great sound quality, an FM radio, and line-in recording
into a tiny package.
